Efficiency and visual appeal: Jowat AG at the Fachpack 2013

Detmold.- A comprehensive product portfolio for a wide spectrum of applications is presented at this year's Fachpack in Nuremberg by Jowat AG. The highlights at this trade show are new adhesives for manufacturing bags made of polypropylene wovens, and the innovative adhesives for bubble-free bonding of clear folding boxes.

New: Jowat-Toptherm® for the cost-efficient manufacture of carrier bags made of polypropylene wovens

An innovative adhesive development by Jowat AG enables the cost efficient inline manufacture of carrier bags made of PP wovens: The new powerful adhesive from the Jowat-Toptherm® product family demonstrates superior wetting characteristics, which allows the bonding of PP woven materials without any extensive surface pre-treatment. A clear advantage - process efficiency is improved and manufacturing costs are kept down. The high initial strength of the adhesive in combination with a short open time facilitates high production speeds. The final bond strength is reached already within one day.

For clear folding boxes with impressive visual appeal: Jowatherm-Reaktant®

The quality demands for adhesives used in the manufacture of clear folding boxes are extremely challenging: Adhesives must remain free of bubbles during application and also subsequent crosslinking reaction, nor may they yellow throughout the entire life of the package. The new adhesive member of the Jowatherm-Reaktant® family remains permanently invisible – even when thicker adhesive layers are applied, for instance in the bonding of package bottoms. The wide spectrum of adhesion to all standard plastics used in the manufacture of clear folding boxes, the excellent UV stability and the supreme application properties – especially when used with contactless nozzle applicators – are additional features of this product.

Finally, this adhesive also meets in its composition the food contact regulations according to EC10/2011 and FDA 175.105.
