On the basis of the first signs of the changing market, SABA’s Research and Development (R&D) team started searching for alternatives to CR, together with suppliers. The aim was an adhesive that complies with all the high requirements of the foam processing industry, with components that remain sufficiently available for our specialized application.
The result of these efforts is a future-proof portfolio of CR-free adhesives, featuring high initial tack and strong final bonding. These adhesives can directly absorb tensions in the bonded material and have an adhesive joint that does not discolor and remains soft and flexible. These are essential properties for the foam processing industry.
