H.B. Fuller Co. will showcase several technologies that address growing trends in sustainable consumer goods and e-commerce packaging at PRINTPACK INDIA® 2022. Attendees are invited to visit the company in Hall 9B, Booth F22, at the event in Greater Noida, Delhi, May 26-30.
H.B. Fuller’s new food-safe solution, sold under the Swift®tak brand, reportedly addresses the increasing demand for paper straws for a variety of end-use applications in the foodservice, institutional, and residential industries. Moreover, increased consumer demand for low-impact straws, upcoming government reform, and the many campaigns to ban single-use plastic are expected to contribute to the expansion of paper straws in our everyday life.
Additionally, H.B. Fuller will introduce a metallocene range of solutions for bookbinding applications. Its metallocene-based hot-melt adhesives reportedly offer several advantages in the production process and end-use applications, such as lower coat weight, increased adhesion strength, and robust temperature resistance.
As more people shop online, merchants and manufacturers need high-performing adhesives and hassle-free, sustainable packaging. Therefore, the company will showcase solutions for e-commerce packaging through a complete line of pressure-sensitive adhesives under the Swift®melt brand. According to H.B. Fuller, these adhesives enable the bonding of tough substrates for a variety of applications, including pressure-sensitive tapes or labels, container labelling, and courier bag applications.
In addition, the company will demonstrate how its reinforcement and opening tapes portfolio can help improve the performance of corrugated and folding carton packaging. These tape technologies can reduce damage or add functionality, creating better-performing boxes and packages. The range of starch additives under the FULLREZ® and COR-WELD™ brands can augment water-resistance to many types of packaging products while improving board quality and reducing waste.
