H.B. Fuller: Palletizing Adhesives

April 27, 2000
PALLETITE® adhesives offer an alternative to stretch-wrap for unitizing pallets, at about one-tenth the cost. These adhesives have a very high shear strength, which helps keep pallet loads together. At the same time, their low tensile strength makes it easy to pull loads apart at their destination. Unlike conventional stretch wraps, which must be disposed of, these adhesives put an end to disposal and recycling hassles because they stay with the package. The PALLETITE family includes both hot melt and water-based formulas.
