The popularity and convenience of aerosol adhesives cannot be understated. Aerosol adhesives are easy to use, dependable, and versatile. New eco-friendly aerosol adhesives ensure that the convenience does not come at a cost to the air we breathe.

VOC Standards & CARB Compliance

Volatile organic compounds (VOC) in aerosol adhesives can unintentionally combine with elements in the atmosphere, contributing to air pollution problems like smog. As a result, VOC reduction efforts have been introduced to federal and state air quality regulations.

The Clean Air Act, enacted in 1970, allows the US EPA to create and update federal air quality standards. Three years prior, reacting to heavy air pollution levels in California, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) had already been established. Strengthened EPA standards is one reason that CARB now limits VOC in products like aerosol adhesives.
