It was a sticky situation.

For many years, foam fabricator Marsh Armfield used a solvent adhesive to bond foam cushions used in commercial seating. The problem was the adhesive would often dry too quickly, requiring operators to start over. If a mistake happened, they had to bring the cushions to another work station and use a steamer to separate them, adding to inefficiencies. Moreover, they were looking for a greener alternative to solvent-based adhesives.

“We tried water-based adhesives from three different companies, but they were difficult to use and took too long to dry, leading to inefficiencies,” said Matt Jones, general manager.

For the past four months, the company has been using Chemique’s Pro Aqua water-based adhesive with its 8-gun sprayer delivery system, which recently received GREENGUARD Gold certification.

“By far, this system is much better than every other system we’ve tried,” Jones said. “The spray guns are extremely light and maneuverable, allowing us to be 15 percent more efficient.”

A pump attached to a 52-gallon drum feeds the adhesive to eight different spray guns, allowing eight different operators to apply adhesive at the same time.

ProAqua products are ideal for foam fabrication, office seating, upholstery, bedding, transportation and other applications requiring the bonding of foams, cloth, wood, plastics and metals.

Chemique’s Pro Aqua system includes equipment, delivery, set up and tech support.

“I like that Chemique can help service the equipment if needed,” Jones said.
