When exposed to weather conditions, adhesives must perform perfectly, both at very high and at negative temperatures, and the bonded packages must be able to withstand all strains before being opened by the user.
In addition to the requirements for the finished packaging, there are also other essential things. No less crucial are the technological characteristics of the adhesive in the packaging machine. The hot melt adhesive must meet a range of criteria for the specific application. Rapid curing, for example, is an absolute must for high-speed packaging. However, the open time must be long enough to suit the machine. The adhesive must also meet a lot of other requirements – often specific to the particular customer.
Nowadays, when choosing a suitable adhesive for food packaging, one of the most important things to consider is food contact safety. Henkel takes this issue very seriously and all of its adhesives meet the highest safety requirements and standards.
