Chemical testing on adhesive products

Due to the complex nature of adhesives, it is not surprising that a large number of chemicals restricted or otherwise, can be found within them. These chemicals include formaldehyde, phthalates, flame retardants and biocidal products and are covered in regulations such as REACH.

It is important to test adhesives in order to ensure that they do not contain restricted chemicals in levels above the maximum concentration limits, as stipulated in legislation.
