No chemical reactions take place during the production of our hot melts. Instead, we safely combine high quality polymers with other advanced substances in a carefully controlled environment.

This removes the need for Beardow Adams to register our hot melts under the EU REACH or Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals requirement.

We have also worked closely with our trusted suppliers to ensure that supply of raw materials delivered to us will be unaffected by REACH. The following end uses are incorporated into the exposure scenarios compiled by the raw material registrar:

PROC1: Use in closed process, no likelihood of exposure.
PROC2: Use in closed, continuous process with occasional controlled exposure.
PROC3: Use in closed batch process (synthesis or formulation).
PROC4: Use in batch and other process (synthesis) where opportunity for exposure arises.
PROC5: Mixing or blending in batch processes for formulation of preparations and articles (multistage and/or significant contact).
PROC7: Industrial spraying / air dispersive techniques, spraying for surface coating, adhesives, polishes/cleaners and air care products.
PROC8b: Transfer of substance or preparation (charging/discharging) from/to vessels / large containers at dedicated facilities.
PROC9: Transfer of substance or preparation into small containers (dedicated filling line, including weighing).
PROC10: Roller application or brushing.
PROC11: Non industrial spraying / air dispersive techniques.
PROC12: Use of blowing agents in manufacture of foam.
PROC13: Treatment of articles by dipping and pouring.
PROC14: Production of preparations or articles by tabletting, compression, extrusion, pelletisation.
