The report gives results of an evaluation and assessment of the performance, economics, and emission reduction potential upon application of low-volatile organic compound (VOC) waterborne contact adhesive formulations specifically in a manual laminating operation for assembling store fixtures. The main goal of the project was to determine if three waterborne contact adhesives could achieve adhesion performance levels equivalent to, or exceeding, that of a currently used solvent-borne contact adhesive while emitting lower VOCs and/or hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) upon application. Two secondary goals were to determine the relative cost of using each alternative contact adhesive, compared to the currently used product (called the 'control'), and to estimate the emission reduction potential from the use of each alternative adhesive.
