Application Description

Side seam and dot gluing

Used for primary packaging, folding boxes provide additional benefits, and do not only protect the product during transport and storage. Folding boxes are increasingly used as advertising media and communicate brand images and product quality. Therefore, they have become more customised with regard to their function, form and degree of finishing – from embossing, to perforation, printed sheet lamination, and varnish coatings.

Jowat also supplies dispersions from the Jowacoll® product range for longitudinal seams and point gluing of folding boxes. These adhesives are characterised by excellent mechanical processing characteristics and very good adhesion even to demanding, coated or lacquered surfaces.

Flap bonding

Corrugated cardboard is the most used packaging material worldwide. The lightweight material is very stable, eco-friendly and can be finished in many ways. Dispersion adhesives from Jowat are used for laminating the cardboard with high-quality papers during the finishing step. These adhesives provide superior adhesion properties and the ideal processing characteristics for all individual requirements.
Manufacturers’ joints of corrugated cardboard boxes are usually bonded. This method provides several benefits compared to stapling and taping: a high degree of automation, reduced downtimes, and an attractive appearance. Jowacoll® dispersion adhesives for this application facilitate a reliable and permanent bond – even at high feed speeds.
