Formaldehyde-free Adhesive

Zurich, Switzerland – H.B. Fuller (NYSE: FUL) announced today the launch of new Rakoll® 4933 – a water-based adhesive that is formaldehyde-free.

 

Designed for wood-working applications, such as parquet flooring, interior doors, office and home furniture, Rakoll 4933 is our new D3 adhesive grade that offers customers the potential to gain competitive advantage by obtaining low hazard certificates for their finished products.

 

“As public awareness of hazardous emissions grows, we wanted to go one step further in the sustainability of our products,” says Johannes Christiani. “This latest addition to our trusted Rakoll range gives customers the assurance of a strong and reliable adhesive that also contributes to lowering the accumulated hazardous emissions in homes and workplaces.”

 

He continued, “Rakoll 4933 also offers manufacturers other technical key benefits, including high initial strength, fast setting times, low volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions and a medium pH-value, resulting in reduced machine corrosion.”

 

The development of Rakoll 4933 follows the reclassification of formaldehyde as Carcinogen Category 1B (Hazard H350), European Regulation 1272/2008/EC that regulates the Classification, Labelling and Packaging of substances and mixtures (CLP).

 

Rakoll 4933 is manufactured in Europe.

 

The Rakoll® range of quality adhesives for woodworking applications offer strong bonding, low defects and excellent processing qualities.

 

Rakoll® is a trademark of H.B. Fuller Company (“H.B. Fuller”) or an affiliated company of H.B. Fuller, and is registered in the European Community and other countries.
