ECO-BOND Adhesives was formed out of the need for a REAL, toxic-free, child and pet-safe adhesive and sealants. While building his home, one of the founders of ECO-BOND Adhesives found that his wife was getting sick from the odor emitted by standard adhesives and sealants. Concerned about the long-term effects this may have on his family’s health he searched for a non-toxic, low-odor alternative. While several existed in the market – they were either considerably more expensive, much less effective or the low-odor/low-VOC claims did not hold true.
After much research, he turned to the commercial and industrial world and discovered an adhesive that was widely used in manufacturing and commercial construction. Working with the same basic formulation and technology used in the production of the commercial grade adhesive the ECO-BOND Adhesives’ line of products were developed.
