In its milestone anniversary year, Jowat will showcase a range of bio-based and recycling-friendly hot melts at Empack 2019 in Dortmund. It will be the first time the adhesives specialist is presenting a complete portfolio of sustainable adhesives based on raw materials sourced from renewable resources. The products also meet the recommendations for recyclable adhesive applications by the European Paper Recycling Council. Jowat uses this competence to support processors when it comes to ecological and recyclable packaging – entirely in the spirit of the new packaging law that came into force on 1 January 2019.
However, sustainability at Jowat goes far beyond replacing synthetic raw materials with renewable ones. Efficient and resource-saving bonding processes are the declared aim already when the product is being developed. Low-temp hot melts, for instance, can facilitate a reduction of energy consumption and optimise the working environment under health aspects. Another example are products from the Jowat-Toptherm® series. Due to clean processing characteristics and a high yield, they provide the fundamental prerequisites for resource-saving manufacturing processes – wasted material is prevented, maintenance costs and downtimes are reduced, and the service life of the equipment is increased.
The powerful PO hot melt adhesives from Jowat provide sustainable and innovative adhesive solutions for a broad range of applications in carton, tray and folding box bonding operations.
100 years of Jowat. Since 1919, the globally active adhesives specialist from Detmold has systematically and successfully built on an impressive product diversity, deep industrial understanding, and close customer contact.
You can find Jowat on 08 & 09 May 2019 at EMPACK in Dortmund, booth A 23.
