Sustainability

Mactac is the first BioPreferred pressure-sensitive adhesive manufacturer recognized by the USDA. 

 

 

Mactac's Sustainability Mission Statement:


1. Our sourcing team partners with companies that also share our passion for the environment. We make every effort to source our paper product from companies that procure materials from sustainably managed forests.

2. Our manufacturing facilities have a relentless focus on waste reduction. Any waste generated from our coating process is recycled or sent to waste-to-energy plants and our effort is to minimize the amount and impact of the waste material as we continue our focus for sustainability.

3. Our research and development teams are constantly innovating, looking towards new technologies to reduce our carbon footprint, develop products that are able to be recycled and reduce our environmental impact.

4. Our company is focused on diverse and equal rights for all employees. Our goal is to have an accepting work environment that is both good for employees as well as our environment. Mactac continues to drive community events and fundraisers that support the community.

How is Mactac Helping?

 
  • Since 1959, Mactac has pursued excellence in all areas of pressure-sensitive adhesive manufacturing. Our technology and adhesive platforms have allowed us to become one of the leading manufacturers of adhesives and tape products in North America.
  • Mactac recognized the need to move away from solvent-based adhesive manufacturing and coating processes. These processes consume considerable raw materials from petroleum products to natural gas.
  • Mactac developed a 100% solids adhesive tape manufacturing process, utilizing proprietary technology to move completely away from the resource-intensive solvent-coating process.
  • No-VOC UV Cured Acrylic Adhesives meet Japan Industry Standards for interior spaces. These adhesives have no-outgassing, no residual solvents or monomers and no substances of concern.
  • BioPreferred™ Status achieved for several Mactac adhesives. Mactac's BioPreferred adhesives have been independently tested by a third-party laboratory in accordance with ASTM D6866. BioPreferred products meet the USDA's biobased content minimum of 24%.
