This manufacturer outlines its eco stewardship as, “Way ahead of the industry,” said Gary Liddington, business manager, manufacturing brands. “Long before it became fashionable, the company was working with EPA and CRI officials to improve IAQ with respect to adhesives.” For example, the Envirotec line, first introduced in the late 1980s, meets all Green Label Plus program requirements with solvent free adhesives for carpet, resilient and wood installation.

Environmental stewardship has continued to play a role in product development, Liddington continued. The 1990s featured the Envirotec adhesives and in the early 2000s, Taylor lauded the proprietary Meta-Tec technology system.

According to W.F. Taylor president, Jack Raidy, those products are GreenGuard certified and meet requirements for the California Collaborative for High Performance Schools, the South Coast Air Quality Management District, and LEED credits for low-emitting materials.

Today the company highlights the MS Plus Advance wood flooring adhesive as the best example of its corporate policy and direction by combining environmental legacy with ultimate performance products containing no solvents or isocyanates.

“Taylor combined this very safe MS Plus Advance chemistry with a unique dual curing system and user friendly characteristics such as easy cleanup, virtually no odor and ease of application,” Liddington said.
