The price of technological advancements is the environment. This has always seemed to be the case for a long time. The invention of motor vehicles is one good example. The vehicles allowed the humanity to reach great heights by allowing faster commute and timely delivery of goods and services to places that need it. The exhaust from vehicles is also one of the major causes of pollution. The same goes with many modern products that require the use of environmental resources and produces byproducts that are harmful to the surroundings.
There is still hope. As the demand for improved practices that protect or help the environment increases, many industries are putting effort and making investments towards the development of products that benefit the environment. In the adhesive industry, the development of polyurethane adhesive is a key step in helping the environment.
Adhesives are essential in various important industries. Any performance improvement benefits the industries that use it. An example are the adhesives used in the automotive industry.
A stronger and fast-curing adhesive can help improve the production efficiency. Better production efficiency means less energy required. The less energy is used, the less carbon emissions are produced. Furthermore, newer adhesives open up opportunities for car designs that are lighter and are more fuel efficient.
