As manufacturers of the greenest adhesives on the market, we are always conscientious about our impact on people and the planet. We strive to reduce waste at all our locations and promote the health of our employees, as well as encourage recycling on job sites and safer work conditions for installers. We are also committed to reduced emissions and greener construction practices, using only Red List-Free ingredients and complying with the leading emissions standards in the country.
OUR IMPACT ON THE PLANET
Our unique spray-applied technology reduces the environmental impact of adhesives in many ways. By spraying instead of troweling, we can reduce consumption up to 80%.
Also, we use water instead of solvents to deliver our polymers, eliminating cancer-causing chemicals emitted during drying and curing.
Our adhesives are designed to be releasable when needed, allowing for the reuse of flooring such as carpet tile, vinyl plank or vinyl tile
We are also committed to reuse during manufacturing, and any materials that cannot be reused are recycled.
We also promote recycling, allowing you to divert used flooring from landfills and direct them to recycling facilities.
Additionally, all our products are packaged in recyclable aluminum cans and shipped in post-consumer recycled boxes.

OUR IMPACT ON PEOPLE
Our unique technology lets installers do their job quickly and safely by allowing them to work upright in a natural standing position. Spray-Lock Eco Adhesives minimize the amount of time installers are on their knees and eliminate wear-and-tear on shoulders from dragging a trowel through adhesive. By reducing these types of injuries, contractors can worry less about the cost to train replacement workers, paying workers’ compensation claims or turning down jobs due to manpower shortages.
