XL Brands has been manufacturing adhesives for the Flooring Industry since 1978 and has been producing sustainable floor covering adhesives since 2006, utilizing the most novel and environmentally friendly materials and methods, recycled content and sustainable packaging. XL Brands has several certifications regarding product safety and content, and for the last half decade, has been an ISO 14001 company.

As an industry innovator, XL Brands gives primary focus to the novelty and quality of our products and any impact they might have on our customers and the environment. As a result XL Brands has invested in many programs such as FloorScore®, CRI Green Label Plus™ and Cradle to Cradle to rigorously test our products for Indoor Air Quality standards and material health and safety. XL Brands was drawn to the Cradle to Cradle design because it offered us a clear and quantifiable path in our continuing move towards sustainability, and a way to track our progress during the journey.

XL Brands is proud to have the first Cradle to Cradle Certified™ GOLD Level flooring adhesive. We were especially proud to discover that it was the first adhesive of any kind to receive a Cradle to Cradle GOLD Certification. We have gone on to certify another GOLD adhesive, and currently have six adhesives with SILVER Certifications. For us, however, this is just the beginning. We have seen our industry embrace the Cradle to Cradle principles and many of our customers are seeking their own certifications. As companies in the construction industry focus on green building, the LEED credits offered for Cradle to Cradle products provide real value for our customers and the end consumer.
