Hot New Adhesive for Office Furniture Manufacturers

Jan-21-2014 | Comments: 0 | Posted In: | Posted By: Jaye Schroeder
Chemists at Franklin Adhesives & Polymers have spent time in their laboratories to make it easy for office furniture manufacturers to achieve BIFMA certification for sustainability.

We’ve just developed a breakthrough adhesive for use in the manufacture of office furniture that is designed to achieve both MBDC (McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry) certification and fire rating.

Our new Titebond Quickset 1000 FR is a one-component polyvinyl acetate (PVA) emulsion adhesive that has been designed to meet the tough requirements of MBDC’s Cradle-to-Cradle CertifiedMC program for safety to humans and the environment and design for future life cycles. The MBDC program is administered by the Cradle to Cradle Product Innovation Institute and evaluates products and materials on criteria in five areas: material health, material reutilization, energy use, water stewardship and social responsibility. Certified products are eligible for LEED points as an Environmentally Preferable Materials in USGBC’s LEED for Homes Rating System; under the Innovation in Design category in all LEED rating systems; and under the Pilot Credit 43: Certified Products in all LEED rating systems.

As a furniture manufacturer, you can use the program’s toxicity assessment toward the Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturers Association (BIFMA) level certification for sustainability, too.

As the product name implies, Titebond Quickset 1000 FR generates strong initial tack and sets quickly. It also passes UL723 and ASTM E84 testing for surface burning characteristics of building materials, meeting stringent safety requirements for retarding the spread of fire.
