Diisobutyl phthalate (DiBP), a plasticizer frequently used in adhesives for the paper converting industry, is suspected of being harmful to health. German manufacturers and processors of paper, board and cardboard have undertaken to stop using products containing DiBP. To protect consumers in the long term, Henkel has come up with a solution of its own: the Adhesin A 78 Series, a new generation of plasticizer-free adhesive formulations for all applications in the paper and packaging industry.

The performance of Adhesin A 78 adhesives matches that of proven products. They can be processed with ease on existing machines, and they even surpass conventional adhesives in terms of mileage. Henkel customers can switch over to plasticizer-free adhesives without delay and thus underscore their sense of responsibility toward consumers.
