Jowat Bio-based Adhesives

Bio-based Adhesives: Part of Green Adhesives

Sustainability is diverse. The avoidance of fossil raw materials and the increased use of renewable resources are only part of the whole.
With our Jowat Green Adhesives we offer a diverse adhesive portfolio so that you can make your adhesive processes more sustainable and responsible in every respect.

Fossil fuels are finite. Many adhesives are also based on crude oil or natural gas. To be able to take a further step towards independence from petro-origin raw materials and to make a resource-saving contribution to environmental protection, we have developed our products of the GROW series.

What are Bio-based Adhesives?

In the production of our bio-based adhesives, we rely on raw materials from renewable resources. When making our selection, we take care not to compete with food production. The production of our hot melt adhesives takes place in our own plants, which are certified in accordance with different ISO certificates. 
Selected adhesives of the GROW series meet the requirements of FDA 175.105 and EU 10/2011 for food packaging. In addition, Jowatherm® GROW 853.20 is DIN-tested and certified with a bio-based content of 20 – 50 % (8C183). This proportion is regularly reviewed and verified by independent institutions.
