Application Description

Synthetic wovens are used in the manufacture of packaging units that have to withstand heavy loads. This type of material is required for instance to produce sacks and bags for the packaging of animal food, building materials, fertilisers or other bulk goods. These heavy-duty sacks have to withstand high mechanical loads, must be tear and scratch resistant and weatherproof. In addition to the superior durability properties, the low weight is an important advantage during transport, in handling and storage.
Carrier bags of wovens are popular advertising media and can be easily individualised. They create attractive packages with a lasting high value appeal. These bags are safe carrier means and can be used many times over – providing an excellent ecobalance.
With the new and innovative adhesives, packaging units of synthetic wovens are easily formed into shapes with a highly attractive design.

Carrier bags can be manufactured at low costs with Jowat-Toptherm® hot melt adhesives, which provide a reliable bond even on difficult to bond materials such as polypropylene woven without a prior surface treatment. These hot melts are characterised by a good wetting property, strong adhesive force and high aging stability.
The excellent heat stability in the melt of the Jowat-Toptherm® adhesives is another outstanding product feature, leading to reduced delays in production by minimising maintenance work. Common to all new members of the Jowat-Toptherm® product family is their very good application performance. These adhesives were developed for the use in the food sector.
