The Danger Stuck On Your Health
SOLVENT BASED ADHESIVES USED IN PRODUCTION OF SHOES HAVE BEEN A BIG THREAT FOR THE HEALTH OF MANUFACTURERS AND CONSUMERS FOR long time. LET’S HAVE A CLOSER LOOK...
Adhesives are in use for hundreds of years. Humanbeing have used egg whites, dried blood and some plant extracts to draw pictures on the cave walls. Oldest adhesive is found in Italy. The rocks that have been stick together with birch tree, bark and tar was the oldest evidence for that adhesives have been in use for 200.000 years. Egyptians and Sumerians are boiled animal skins and bones to make adhesives stronger in 3500s BC. Ancient Greeks and Romans have producted adhesives by using animals, bone, milk, cheese, and plants. And then starch based new formulas are added to it. But real development on adhesives was on 17th century. Adhesives that producted by synthetic material has been popular in 20th century. WHERE IS THE DIFFERENCE? There are two different groups of adhesives used in shoe industry: Polyurethane and Polikloroprenik based adhesives. for each one, different solvents are used. H2O and some solvents are most popular. Water based adhesives which is in the second group are used in shoe, bag, belt, saddlery industry. Actually water based adhesives are chemical material as well as solvent based adhesives. But solvent adhesives spread faster in environment and release carcinogen. The chemicals like Acetone, hexane, toluene, ethyl acetate, methyl ethyl ketone, methylene chloride, Tri Chloro Ethane as solvent adhesives are threats for human health. The ease of use, faster production and reasonable cost make the water based adhesives more advantageous. SOLVENT BASED ADHESIVES MAKES SICK… Industrial solvents made by volatile organic compounds are a big danger for human nervous system. Halogens used in shoe industry which contains fluorine, chlorine, iodine and bromine known as chemical as well. These halogens increase the risk of anemia, hormonal damage, brain damage, decreased energy, hyperactivity, putting on weight or weight loss, heart arrhythmias, weakness of the immune system and cancer. As a result of an increased use of water based adhesives, there are lots of positive developments in environment and human health as well as in the production quality. Water based adhesives has no harmful effects. HIGHER PRICE BUT HIGHER YIELD Higher price of water based adhesive may cause curiosity. However it must be emphasized that although it is more expensive during the purchase it will be more profitable resulting in faster production and saving on automated product. Therefore, it’s 25% cheaper in total. PVC, PU, TR, rubber, neolite, EVA and leather are used in the industry. Most of them contains high amount of oil. Oil prevents adhesion. It does not adhere to surface if the oil isn’t cleaned well. Companies that want to use water based adhesive must remember that the profit coming from water based adhesive depends on the amount of production. It won’t be profitable if the amount of production is low. IMPRESSIVE RESULTS, HAPPY MANUFACTURERS Manufacturers state that they have no problem with water based adhesives as long as there is no problem during the production. They even state that they got rid of the problems that solvent based adhesives caused. For example, a Turkish company exporting shoes to U.S. reported that, due to the long shipping time during the exportation, shoes had to wait in the container in the customs, Usually the high heat of containers harms to shoes if the solvent based adhesives are used. But water based adhesives stay definitely more resistant to the heat
