As a sustainability advocate, we are constantly working on the development of environmentally friendly adhesives for textile production to enable an even faster evolution of the industry towards greener products and processes. LOCTITE® NSP 7810 for example is made from renewable materials, with renewable content up to 35%. This means we manage to lower dependence on petroleum from the raw material side, leading to a significant reduction of carbon footprint in the whole production process.

In addition, the new product shows excellent green strength and yellowing resistance, ensuring precise positioning, aesthetics, and durability. It can also be dispensed at lower temperatures, which helps to save more energy. Apparel made from this renewable adhesive can withstand 90 ℃ washing water without delamination, and maintains a soft touch and high elasticity, enabling sports fans to perform comfortably and freely.

Henkel’s innovative adhesive solutions also empower designers to bring more bolder ideas to reality than ever before. Exceptionally freer designs than what would be possible with traditional sewing architecture can be put into practice. This not only has great advantages for design, but also resembles an echo to the ‘greener fashion’ trend which has a focus on increasing the sustainability of textiles and clothing over their whole lifecycles.
