ST. PAUL, Minn., July 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- H.B. Fuller Company (NYSE: FUL) offers a complete line of high-performance, GREENGUARD certified adhesives for laminating decorative overlays and films to composite panels for furniture, cabinets, retail displays, and other common woodworking applications. Sold under the Swift®tak brand name, this group of water-based adhesives is certified for low volatiles, making the panels safe for use in LEED-certified environments, schools and other buildings where use of sustainable, low-emitting materials is important.
"When customers need high adhesion with low volatility, we want them to think of H.B. Fuller," said Doug Lange, H.B. Fuller business development manager. "As one example of the excellent bond performance our adhesives offer, Swifttak products are enabling the advancement of sustainable, high-performance decorative overlay films by successfully bonding the film technology in high-speed lamination processes."
In fact, the Swifttak adhesives are now used in the commercialization of Premeer®, a popular new decorative overlay, manufactured by Interprint using SynDECOR® polypropylene. "As we continue to bring Premeer to market, there are two things that resonate with our customers from an adhesive perspective – sustainability and high-performance. H.B. Fuller is able to deliver both through its line of Swifttak GREENGUARD certified adhesives," said Peter Stasiowski, director of communications for Interprint-USA.
Swifttak adhesives can be used with a customer's existing lamination equipment, making H.B. Fuller an ideal adhesives provider for products and projects requiring the use of low-volatile materials.
