What we

As a system provider, we supply complete solutions from one source – tailor-made for many different applications. With high-quality, solvent-free products, complete bonding systems and first class customer service, we are happy to be there for you at all times.

Where we
come from

ALFA Klebstoffe AG was established in 1972 by Emil Simmler. Right from the start, the visionary company founder developed and sold environmentally-friendly adhesives and consistently oriented the company towards innovation. To this day, his vision dominates the further development of our products.

Where we
are today

Today more than 50 employees work at the Rafz location for ALFA Klebstoffe AG. Our products are exported to over 90 countries. As a result, ALFA Klebstoffe AG is one of the market leaders in the field of environmentally-friendly, water-based adhesives. Above all in the foam-processing industry, our progressive SIMALFA® series is regarded as the international standard. Apart from dispersion adhesives, we also sell hot-melts for all kinds of sectors.


We cooperate closely with our customers and integrate their requirements into our innovations. Consequently, we are close to the market and are regarded as a pioneer when it comes to the further development of water-based adhesives. We work day-by-day at further expanding our technological lead in order to be able to meet the needs of our customers even better.


Our knowledge in the field of water-based adhesives extends beyond our own product range. We offer our customers sustainable complete solutions, which continuously optimise the entire bonding process and work processes. What is important to us is that our customers benefit from our know-how and can apply and use it in their everyday work.


We produce our adhesives free of solvents. We aim to minimise the worldwide consumption of solvents. As a result, we provide safe, healthy workplaces and a lastingly improved work environment for our customers. Our adhesive solutions provide our customers with clear added value and at the same time make an active contribution to environmental protection.
