I am assisting a manufacturer of foam cushions, who is looking for a
less toxic adhesive to bond fabric and foam.  They are currently using a
spray adhesive that is 65% methylene chloride.  Does anyone know of an
adhesive for this application that contains fewer toxics?  Have hot melt
adhesives been used for this purpose?
