W.F. Taylor Co., Inc. – an industry pacesetter in the development of floor covering adhesives and floor preparation products – was founded in 1977 by Wallace F. Taylor, a well-respected chemist. In 1984 Taylor was sold to a British company who retained ownership until 1989 when the present management purchased the company.
A Healthy History – Envirotec®
Taylor’s commitment to the environment was first demonstrated in the early 1990s with the development and introduction of its Envirotec® Healthguard Adhesive Technology.
Taylor’s Envirotec® line – the first environmentally friendly adhesive products – meets all the requirements of the CRI Green Label Plus™ Program and first to achieve the coveted Greenguard® Certification.
Continuing the Tradition – Patented Meta-Tec® and MS (Modified Silane) Advance Chemistry
In early 2000, Taylor launched our patented Meta-Tec® technology and manufacturing process. Meta-Tec® technology, as the name implies, signifies a dramatic shift in the development of high performance adhesives that consists of the use of renewable bio-based oils and resins along with a unique cross-linking system that achieves high shear strength and a waterproof cured bond.
MS Plus Advance™ Chemistry
Taylor in 2008, again built on the continuing success of the Meta-Tec® line with the introduction of MS Plus Advance™ Wood Flooring Adhesive. This revolutionary technology combines the patented backbone of Meta-Tec® reactive adhesive chemistry without the potentially dangerous MDI/TDI isocyanate found in conventional legacy urethane adhesives but maintains the moisture cure functionality. This is the most technologically advanced wood flooring adhesive available worldwide. It is also Greenguard® certified.
W.F. Taylor prides itself in the reputation it enjoys in the industry for being innovative pacesetters, for the quality of its products, and for the superior service we offer our customers. We will continue to promote environmentally safe products and encourage all in the industry to follow.
