H.B. FULLER CO.: Laminating Adhesives for Packaging

April 18, 2013

Two new adhesives can help customers get food products packaged and shipped faster. SFA8605 solvent-free laminating adhesive and SB7200/XAS2283 solvent-based laminating adhesive are designed to safely increase efficiency and reduce working capital.

Flextra Fast SFA8605 is reportedly suitable for snack applications, such as stand-up pouches for dry snacks, and offers line speeds up to 1200 fpm. The adhesive can enable shipping of goods in as little as two days. The adhesive reportedly adheres well to most substrates, including foil, nylon, metalized films and high-slip sealants, and offers excellent appearance.

Flextra Fast SB7200/XAS2283 offers high green bond strength and can be used for demanding food packaging applications, including triple-layer and greater laminations. The adhesive offers a high level of heat resistance for use in microware, boil-in-bag, hot fill and pasteurization applications, as well as a high level of product resistance to withstand aggressive-filled goods.
