Get Your Hands on Dichloromethane Free Adhesives! 

Dichloromethane (DCM) is a solvent.  It’s used to keep liquid adhesives in a liquid form so that they can be sprayed or spread onto a surface.  Once the adhesive comes in contact with the air, the solvent evaporates and the adhesive turns to a solid.

Dichloromethane is a very effective solvent, but it also has a number of health drawbacks.  The compounds in dichloromethane affect the human body’s mucous membranes – so that’s the lining of the eye sockets and the lungs, as well as the skin.  Common symptoms include:

  • Sore, itchy or watery eyes
  • Coughing or wheezing
  • Skin rashes

When inhaled, DCM vapour can cause neurological symptoms such as dizziness and headaches.  In laboratory tests performed on rodents, exposure to dichloromethane was shown to increase the risks of cancer, and is linked to incidences of lung cancer in humans.

Dichloromethane is heavier than air, which means that when it evaporates out of the adhesive, it lingers at around 12 inches from floor level for a significant period of time.  Because carpet fitters in particular spend a lot of time kneeling, they are at greater risk of dichloromethane exposure.

Wearing high-grade PPE can protect contractors from the risks of DCM – but wearing a respirator when fitting carpets isn’t the way most people like to work.  Switching to a DCM-free adhesive means you can eliminate the risks, without compromising on performance.
