Pattex – “gives you the power”.
This is a promise that goes much further than enabling our users to get their jobs done with the support of our powerful & high-quality products within the large portfolio of bonding & sealing solutions. It also reflects the commitment of the brand within the Henkel Group, worldwide leader in sustainability, to provide users with toxic-free formulations which will neither harm their health nor the environment.
And with Pattex, we always give promises that hold. That‘s why we have concrete and tangible plans behind our sustainability strategy.
For mature markets, our goal is to provide our entire product portfolio completely free of solvants. A challenging task since we never want to compromise on the product performance. We are proud to claim that already today we achieve this goal to 99%. The latest best example is the 2011 launch in entire Europe of the new strong multi-purpose glue called 100% glue, with 0% solvants of course.
For developing markets, due to market needs and availability of raw materials locally, our goal is to provide our entire product portfolio completely free of toxic solvants – so eliminating all dangerous solvants from the formulas. A challenging task since this means a heavy investment behind. We are proud to claim that already today we achieve this goal to 95% on a worldwide basis. The latest best example is certainly our achievement to have deleted the solvant „Toluene“ from all our contact adhesives formulas worldwide. By 2014, Pattex will have achieved the goal of exiting all dangerous solvants completely.
