Posted on 1/15/2020 8:09:39 AM By ASC

Dow Chemicals has added a new high-solids adhesive, the L76-500, to its Adcote solvent-based packaging adhesives range. The company reports the new adhesive will provide about 55% high solids content in application, and achieve lamination at speeds as high as 400mpm to allow for faster production and outputs in the manufacture of packaging.

According to the company, the new adhesive shows good results in terms of wettability as well as solvent-release during drying. It is designed primarily for use in package structures such as the stand-up pouches used for both personal care products and condiments such as ketchup. However, the company reports it is also suitable for use in other medium performance applications, including any packaging that makes use of laminates like aluminium, PET, triplex and quadruplex compositions and other metalized films.
