Adhesives Health and Safety

Health and safety is always a key concern.  Our adhesives pose few health hazards when used in normal industrial situations.  However, as adhesives are used in their hot molten state care should be taken to avoid risk from burns.

When solid, adhesives are almost odourless and harmless.  On occasion some skin irritation may occur and extra care should be taken to avoid contact with the adhesives.

Always use appropriate protective clothing as well as hand, eye and face protection when dealing with molten adhesives.

Minimal fumes should be present when used at recommended temperatures.  While generally harmless some people may suffer irritated respiratory systems.  Care should be taken to not over heat adhesives, particularly for extended periods to avoid potentially toxic fumes.

Always use and prepare adhesives at recommended temperatures and with appropriate machinery and following instructions for safety and optimum performance.
