Penford Teams Up With Elmer's® To Develop New School Glue Naturals™

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa, April 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Penford Products, a division of Penford Corporation (NASDAQ: PENX), today announced its support behind the launch of a natural school glue jointly developed with Elmer's® Products, Inc.

Elmer's pourable School Glue Naturals consists of 99 percent natural ingredients and is made from renewable plant-based resources. The adhesive is safe, non-toxic and washable and was also designed to apply and dry clear to meet parents and teachers needs for school products.  

"Through our third-party consumer and industry research, we understood that eco-conscious parents and teachers prefer more natural alternatives to traditional school supplies," said Lisa Singer, senior product manager for the Elmer's Stationery category. "We are proud to satisfy this demand with the first and only natural school glue, and are appreciative of the support and technology Penford Corporation provided."
