De-Contenting of Adhesives

A recent publication of The Commercial Flooring Report (volume 68 – April 2014) reported that some adhesive manufacturers have resorted to “de-contenting” their products as a cost-saving measure, which could result in installation failures.

What is de-contenting?  According to the article, it means that the solids content or active ingredients of the adhesive are being reduced or replaced with water in order to lower cost and maintain a profit margin.
