BASF receives TUV certification for Epotal ECO

LUDWIGSHAFEN, GERMANY: BASF gained a further TUV certificate for the previously certified compostable adhesive Epotal ECO, water based biodegradable adhesive granted by DIN Certco, in 2010. This new certification confirms that the whole adhesive system, consisting of Epotal ECO and the corresponding curing agent, fulfills the evaluation criteria for compostable materials as outlined in the European Standard 13432.

Test results show that within 70 days Epotal ECO is decomposed by 90 per cent. After decomposition Epotal ECO leaves no toxic residues nor shows any negative effects on the environment. In addition, Epotal ECO retains all the advantages of water based adhesives- high green strength, absence of any toxic substances and thus enables an immediate subsequent processing.
