Jowatherm-Reaktant® GROW 631.20 is the first reactive polyurethane hot melt adhesive for textile lamination developed from renewable raw materials. With more than 20% bio-based renewable raw materials, it saves a considerable quantity of resources in its first development stage. A wide variety of material combinations achieve high resistance to washing and a soft-touch composite.
The concept of sustainability is influencing thoughts and actions in every area of life. More and more, consumers are opting for environmentally friendly products. This applies in particular to the textile industry, where the trend is increasingly to replace previously common materials with bio-based solutions. Adhesive plays a special role, as it must meet the highest demands for each application, which until now has only been possible with products based on fossil raw materials. This adhesive can be processed as usual, just like conventional products.
More than 20% of Jowatherm-Reaktant® GROW 631.20 is made up of bio-based materials, which will be documented and regularly verified by independent institutes. Due to the proportion of renewable raw materials, this adhesive is recommended for companies that want to gradually reduce the use of fossil-based materials, actively contributing to environmental protection.
