XL Brands has received the first Gold Level Certification for an adhesive from the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute.
XL Brands’ Stix 5405 is a luxury vinyl adhesive, which contains 20% post consumer content, is FloorScore certified and is packaged in an EcoPure treated biodegradable pail, according to the company.
In order to achieve the Cradle to Cradle Gold rating a product must not only pass indoor air quality standards, but also be evaluated for material reutilization, renewable energy use and carbon management, and water stewardship and social fairness.
In addition to its Stix 5405 getting certified gold, six other XL adhesives were certified at the silver level by the institute.
Cradle to Cradle Certified is a multi-attribute certification program that assesses products and materials for safety to human and environmental health, design for future use cycles and sustainable manufacturing.
