Rohm And Haas Launches Environmentally Friendly Aquaset™ Binders

Philadelphia-based Rohm and Haas Co. reports its new Aquaset™ acrylic thermosetting binders are providing manufacturers of high-quality fiberglass insulation with a cost-effective, eco-friendly alternative to formaldehyde resins traditionally used in the production of fiberglass batting. The Aquaset binders produce only water during the curing process rather than emitting toxic compounds such as methanol, phenol and ammonia and formaldehyde — which continues to be emitted once the curing process is over and throughout the end-product’s lifecycle. The result is a reduction or possible elimination of emissions and volatile organic compounds in the manufacture of insulation batting.

Aquaset technology is non-combustible, non-hazardous, recyclable and non-flammable — properties that have earned it a 1-0-0 safety rating from the Occupational Health & Safety Administration. Its use results in insulation batting that is compressible and moldable, and that offers recovery comparable to or better than recovery in insulation made with formaldehyde resins, according to Rohm and Haas.
