Driven by entrepreneurial spirit, Emil Simmler plucked up the courage to begin developing and distributing water-based adhesives. The fact that the adhesives were already free from solvents at this time was to put a lasting stamp on the history of the company.
Especially in the field of solvent-free wet-bonding adhesives, a pioneering feat was achieved with the launch of the SIMALFA® series. SIMALFA® is worldwide the first water-based, one-component adhesive with immediate wet adhesion for the bonding of foam. Over the course of years, the solvent-free bonding system became established in the foam-processing industry as the international standard for efficient, economical and processing-friendly adhesive application.
Together with the customers, ALFA Klebstoffe AG develops adhesive solutions that cover the entire bonding process. As a result, the company established itself as the world market leader for water-based adhesives in the foam processing industry. The line of products is supplemented by a wide range of dispersion adhesives and hot-melts, which are used for industrial serial production as well as for the bonding of sophisticated materials.
At present, the products of the adhesive manufacturer from Switzerland are exported to over 90 countries. Despite its international orientation, ALFA is strongly committed to Switzerland as a production location and delivers highest quality, reliability and precision to the whole world. Even today, only solvent-free adhesives are produced, replacing thousands of tons of solvents every year. Since its foundation, sustainable and environmentally conscious actions have been central components of the company's philosophy, which is why ALFA Klebstoffe AG was awarded the sustainability prize of the Zürcher Kantonalbank in 2015.
