The environmental benefits

  • Same performance as the currently sold grab adhesives whilst using 82% recycled material in a 80% PCR cartridge
  • Uses 81.4g CO2 less than the current cartridge of similar grab adhesives
  • Using one ton of non-virgin bio-based raw material can save up to 7000L of water
  • 82% of raw material used is recycled, of which 35% bio based and up to 80% of plastic for packaging is made of PCR material
  • If this solution takes 40% of the French DIY Grab Adhesives market, this would mean a reduction of around 325 tonnes CO2
