    FEICA Report on Laminating Adhesives in Flexible Plastic Packaging Recycling

    Flexible packaging offers lightweight and efficient protection for various products, ranging from food to consumer and industrial goods. Laminating adhesives are crucial in bonding both multi-material and mono-material flexible structures.

    Given the significance of packaging recycling, FEICA has published a report that provides the current state of play of how laminating adhesives are reflected in design-for-recycling guidelines, as well as in sortability and recyclability testing for flexible plastic packaging. For detailed insights, please consult the full report here.

    Read the FEICA Position Paper on surfactants need to manufacturing processes involving the use of adhesive and selants. Surfactants are critical to many application such as water-borne and solvent-based adhesive, sealants and primer.

    Removal of surfactants from the market would result in unavailability of water-based adhesive and sealants too, impacting also all of those products that depends on the use of this technology. Sales of water-soluble polymer adhesives added up to a total 115,000 tonnes in 2023.
