Adhesives for improved recycling of packaging
|A compatible adhesive enables a full PE laminated stand-up pouch (SUP) containing up to 30% recycled PE content. The SUP can be recycled and reused to create new SUPs. The general purpose solvent-free PU adhesive is suitable for a machine speed > 250 m/min and high-quality printing and provides fast bond strength development for fast further processing, i.e. slitting & pouching. The SUP can be filled with dry filling and re-fill goods.|
Adhesives and sealants for sustainable development: Recycling
A new adhesive enables the use of recycled polyethylene film for multilayer packaging materials and the recycling of these materials in a closed loop
Posted Apr 21, 2020
- Recycling of packaging materials is a top priority on the circular economy agenda.
- Multilayer packaging is designed to meet the highest standards for product shelf life and protection of product quality.
- A solvent-free adhesive that is suitable for recycling and also for bonding of recycled plastic films has been developed.
- The adhesives are compatible with the olefin layers and have excellent mechanical recycling properties.
