Unlike glass and metal, plastics of PET, PEN, PVC, PE, PP or biopolymers are flexible, extendible and exhibit significantly lower surface tensions. The transition to lightweight materials for plastic containers also involves ever higher expansion rates.
Our aqueous adhesive systems provide outstanding adhesion on these containers with a very wide range of surface tension even at high expansion rates.
Our hot-melt adhesives tolerate great strains, which is necessary for example for all-round labels. These speciality adhesives exhibit their outstanding properties both on paper and plastic film labels. They are resistant to char, provide clean and trouble-free machine operation and can be applied by rolling or spraying.
