GS-36 Adhesives for Commercial Use

The Green Seal Standard for Commercial Adhesives, GS-36, establishes environmental requirements for adhesives intended and labeled for commercial use, adhesives applied onto substrates, and aerosol adhesives.

The standard includes product performance requirements and environmental and health requirements such as reduced toxicity, hazardous ingredients, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The standard can serve as a tool to help companies begin to take action to improve their products and is available for Green Seal certification.
