H.B. FULLER CO.: Hot-Melt Adhesive

October 1, 2013

This company has released Advantra Encore™ 4000, a proprietary polymer technology for case and carton sealing. The adhesive is reportedly currently being used by major food companies in North America.

The adhesive reportedly allows for a combination of low density and exceptional bonding, and provides higher mileage than metallocene-based or ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) hot-melt adhesives. This hot melt can use 20-30% less adhesive than metallocene-based packaging and reportedly uses 40-50% less adhesive than EVA. As a result, the proprietary high polymer adhesive can deliver value and cost savings for the long run.
