Profile: Packaging Adhesives
Modern product packaging can hardly be imagined without adhesives. Adhesive experts from Henkel provide innovative solutions required by packaging designers to turn their ideas into manufacturable packs. At Henkel, sustainability plays a crucial role in the development process. Thus, with its high-performing adhesive technologies and brands such as Liofol, Technomelt or Euromelt, Henkel successfully supports the packaging industries around the world with implementing resource-efficient production methods.
From labeling to carton sealing
In the area of case and carton sealing, bonded packages must perform accurately in all climatic conditions and withstand a wide range of stresses before they are opened by the consumer. Our Technomelt product line perfectly meets these challenging requirements. They provide superior bond strength as well as excellent heat resistance for high temperature applications and cold resistance for deep-freeze applications. Concerning sustainability, Technomelt products are particularly advantageous due to their low application temperature, thus reducing energy costs.
Adhesive technologies have also become indispensable for flexible packaging. For more than 40 years, Henkel has been manufacturing special adhesives for laminating various materials necessary for light and flexible packaging. Packaging fulfills several tasks: information, segmentation, protection and preservation. Henkel adhesives help meet these requirements making packaging flexible and light, yet strong and tear-resistant. This guarantees that freshness and quality are protected until the product is used. The Liofol product range is considered highly convenient due to reduced migration of harmful compounds and accelerated curing.
Being partner of the beverage industry, Henkel moreover develops high-performing adhesives and system solutions for various labeling purposes. In this field of application, adhesive technologies need to be highly compatible in various aspects: the surface of the container, the material, the design, the labels as well as the application and recycling method have to be considered. Compared to conventional products, Euromelt adhesives also contribute to more sustainable production thanks to lower consumption.
