Low VOC Automotive Adhesive Solutions

The goal of the automotive industry is to eliminate volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions within the interior of new vehicles as consumers are demanding cleaner air quality. The “new car” smell has fallen out of fashion, and many chemicals are being limited or banned by OEMs and governments in markets around the world over health concerns.

OEMs and tier suppliers are using more tapes, which can contribute to overall VOC levels in the vehicle. Addressing this challenge, Performance Polymers can assist with the selection and coating of a wide range of pressure-sensitive adhesives. Our UV-cured and emulsion acrylic adhesives provide both the specific bonding needs of an application and low VOC performance to meet the requirements of various OEM specifications and regulatory standards — VDA 278 and VDA 270.


At Avery Dennison Performance Polymers, our technical service and R&D teams bring together extensive Materials Science knowledge and polymer design and formulation. We combine our coating and converting know-how with a deep understanding of end-user applications. And, our team has the capability to quickly tailor and customize adhesives to provide the right solution to your unique application-driven challenges.
