In today’s product design, the continuously increasing environmental awareness of customers is of crucial importance. The call for products that are recyclable, cause no waste and are harmless to humans and nature is no longer just a simple hype, but a necessary development that concerns us today and in the future.
One essential component of products is adhesive, which is used in the product itself and in its packaging. And this is exactly where the new, pollutant-free ALFAPURA® adhesives designed for recyclable end products come into play.
These certified adhesives ensure that end products can be produced to be recyclable with regard to their adhesive and that they facilitate a positive ecological footprint. Manufacturers who strive for a certification in accordance with the Cradle to Cradle Certified™ criteria for their products play it safe with ALFAPURA®.
ALFAPURA® is a pollutant-free range of adhesives that has been developed by the Swiss adhesive manufacturer ALFA Klebstoffe AG and supports the recyclability of their customers‘ end products.
ALFA Klebstoffe AG has had the ALFAPURA® adhesive range assessed according to the Material Health criteria in accordance with the Cradle to Cradle Certified™ product standard – and ALFAPURA® adhesives have been awarded the Material Health Certificate GOLD. This certificate guarantees that all the ingredients, as well as the production of the product, are safe for health and the environment. All raw materials used have been scientifically evaluated and classified as harmless. Only ingredients rated as safe and that are harmless to humans and nature, are used. The entire value chain is considered – from cradle to cradle.
Cradle to Cradle Certified™ is the only globally recognized certification for safe and sustainable products for the circular economy.
Product designers, manufacturers and brands around the world rely on the Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Product Standard as a transformative avenue for designing and making products that have a positive impact on people and our planet.
