Laminating adhesive applications
Bostik’s laminating adhesive products are used in films, pouches, ink binders and primers. These products are designed to meet the innovative needs of the flexible packaging market.
Bostik’s Herberts line is comprised of dry bond laminating adhesives for flexible packaging. These high performing adhesives can be either solvent-based or solvent-less. Bostik’s solvent-based Herberts laminating adhesives are polyester-based adhesives applied out of ethyl acetate or acetone using a hardener.
The solvent-less adhesives for laminating are one-and-two component systems designed for use in medium- to high-performance laminations. Both types of Herberts can be tailored to the most demanding flexible packaging applications, up to and including retort stable laminations.
Bostik’s flexible packaging adhesive products are also used in lidding applications. These heat seal coatings are manufactured using a combination of technologies. For example, Bostik’s lidding adhesive products use hot melt systems based on polymers such as EVA for yogurt wrapping.
Bostik’s line of Vitel® copolyester resins are also suitable for extrusion coating, coextrusion and solvent cast heat seal coatings on PET film.Read more
