GECA releases new adhesives standard

GECA is pleased to announce the release of its newest standard for Adhesives, Fillers and Sealants, which now covers a wider variety of products and sets a new environmental benchmark for the industry.

The new standard, which replaces GECA's previous Adhesives standard, now includes recognition for joint sealants and fillers, plus a stronger focus on industrial and commercial adhesives. GECA chose to expand the scope of the standard in response to increased demand from industry professionals for greater certification options.

Products can be certified under the Adhesives, Fillers and Sealants standard to demonstrate that they meet GECA's strict criteria for lower environmental impact, human health and safety, and ethical working conditions for workers. Read more.
