Product description

Sustainable growth with Jowatherm® GROW

Jowatherm® GROW marks a milestone in the development of hot melt adhesives based on renewable raw materials. Never before have cleaner and more efficient Jowat® products with such a high bio-based content been available. The modern hot melt adhesives save resources, not only due to the formulations with biological components, and facilitate recyclable bonds according to the German packaging law.

In addition to its high content of renewable raw materials, the adhesive provides further benefits that make it particularly environmentally friendly.  The lower processing temperature facilitates a significant reduction in energy consumption, therefore helping in the conservation of resources and the optimisation of the working environment. Jowatherm® GROW 853.40 is also characterised by very low stringing and clean adhesive cut-off, which prevents the waste of adhesive and the soiling of packaging and machine parts.

The very high content of renewable raw materials makes this modern packaging hot melt adhesive ideal for companies that want to avoid the use of fossil-based raw materials as far as possible.
Jowatherm® GROW 853.45 provides a wide range of adhesion that facilitates a reliable Bonding of difficult surfaces. In addition, its high flexibility at low temperatures benefits deep-freeze applications.
