H.B. FULLER: Laminating Adhesive

March 2, 2011

This company has expanded its FlextraTM family of flexible packaging adhesives with Flextra QuietTM laminating adhesive. The company’s first water-based adhesive technology to address the challenge of high noise levels in flexible packaging produced with IngeoTM polylactic acid (PLA)-based laminations, the material reportedly provides environmentally minded consumer packaged goods manufacturers a solution to take their PLA-based packaging initiatives forward.

“Our team at H.B. Fuller is focused on perfecting adhesives that address the needs of the flexible packaging industry,” said Brian Glasbrenner, sales manager for Flexible Packaging. “Consumer packaged goods manufacturers have told us they need innovative solutions to reduce the noise levels of PLA-based packaging materials, and we have delivered an adhesive solution to address the issue.”

Flextra Quiet can be used to laminate renewable PLA film and other films currently used in the growing sustainable flexible packaging arena.
