Flexible packaging laminating adhesives provide solutions for a variety of packaging requirements from economical, general-purpose packaging to high-performance packaging materials such as reclosable packages or packaging fit for oven or microwave uses.
Laminating Adhesives for Packaging
Flexible packaging comes in a wide range of materials with various adhesives designed to meet a broad spectrum of requirements. Packaging applications require long-lasting bonding with fast curing times. Solvent-based polyurethane adhesives are predominantly used in automotive and packaging requirements as well as consumer product industries, where they are applied to a variety of substrate types.
Packaging Adhesive Solutions
Adhesive solutions for the packaging industry must meet various requirements such as:
- Excellent processing even at high speeds
- Easy cleaning
- Comfortable handling
- Compatibility with inks
- Retort and pasteurization processes
- High level of food safety
- High initial tack
- Aliphatic room temperature curing
- Quick primary aromatic amines (PAA) decay
Solventless Laminating Adhesives
Solventless adhesives provide benefits to numerous industries, specifically food packaging processes. Adhesives that are solvent-free provide the desired combination of durable bonding with sustainability and economic benefits as well as safety for the food industry. Solvent-free adhesives are also well suited for packaging needs that require low weight.
Solvent-Based Laminating Adhesives
Solvent-based laminating adhesives are ideal for packaging needs in the food and nonfood industries that require high thermal stresses. Solvent-based adhesives provide solutions to a variety of flexible packaging applications with high bond strength.
Water-Based Adhesives for Laminating
There is an increasing need for water-based laminating adhesives, particularly for use in the food and beverage packaging industry. Water-based adhesives for laminating in the packaging industry provide low foaming properties and quick cure time. Water-based adhesives provide solutions with wet and dry bonding applications for films or foils.
