ASHLAND PERFORMANCE MATERIALS: Food Packaging Adhesive

October 11, 2010

Purelam Fastcure™ two-component urethane solventless adhesives feature long yet stable viscosity that provides hours of run time. This flexibility is coupled with a fast-curing technology that allows package adhesion to cure within 24-48 hours at room temperature. The solventless laminating adhesives are aliphatic polyurethane-based and FDA compliant for a variety of end-use products.

“This environmentally friendly technology produces no aromatic amines and, with its extended pot life, web converters can add speed to their process while reducing energy costs because curing can now be done at room temperature,” said David Hatgas, director of global product management, Packaging and Converting Adhesives and Coatings.
