Empack 2016: Intelligent adhesive systems for the packaging industry are an important factor for meeting today’s market requirements.
Four smart adhesive solutions for four difficult challenges:
The first two solutions address folding boxes with cut-out windows used for primary packaging. Two processes are accomplished at the same time with a full-surface lamination covering the cut-out window and finishing the surface. An optional coating applied on the inside of the box provides an additional barrier function. This facilitates efficient processes, adds value to the product and prevents the migration of chemical components into the content when recycled cardboard is used.
The third solution focuses on popular shelf-ready packaging made of corrugated cardboard. A special tray design uses 180° folds at the removal opening to reduce the risk of injuries. Last year, Jowat developed several powerful hot melt adhesives with superior processing characteristics for bonding this 180° flaps with high restoring forces.
At the Empack trade fairs, Jowat also provides solutions for the demanding manufacture of carrier bags and sacks made of polypropylene (PP) woven, in addition to the already mentioned applications. The nonpolar surface makes polypropylene a very difficult material for bonding. The hot melt adhesives that Jowat SE supplies for this application are characterised by a very good wetting property, a superior bond strength and a high ageing resistance. Bag closing and the manufacture of sealing tape are further applications for Jowat adhesives.
