WHO IS GLUEGUARD?
GlueGuard, Inc. was born from a need and desire to provide the highest quality of products to the North American Industrial Adhesives market. For decades, the North American market has been forced to work with unsafe solvent based cleaners and ineffective citrus cleaners. GlueGuard’s multi-year, worldwide search for an extremely effective and safe adhesive cleaner was a success. We have partnered with Gard Chemicals (a U.K. Company) to be the North American distributor of their incredible line of adhesive and ink cleaners.
