Green Building Material: Eco-bond Adhesives

In the quest for more sustainable and healthier materials for renovating my own home, I have stumbled upon this gem: Eco-bond Adhesives: Zero-VOC adhesive/sealant/caulk.

Caulk and adhesives are usually chock full of nasty, toxic¬†ingredients that smell terrible and make you light headed while appling them, which is only the beginning of the trouble. The off-gassing can take weeks to get to a point where it isn’t noticable by your nose, but how long will it take for the caulk/glue/sealant to finally be benevolent? Possibly never. I haven’t done scientific testing pitting eco-bond against its gassy competitors in areas like longevity, elasticity, or water tightness.¬†I have used both in my home and it performs the same or better than the conventional alternatives. Support companies who do the right thing instead of the cheapest/dirtiest thing and you’ll have a healthier home at the same time!
