Are you sticking with Bio-based?
Bio-based hotmelts for packaging, labelling and assembly
Using Bio-based hotmelts on your production line allows you to differentiate your product lines and promote sustainability to your customers. Ideal for brand owners looking to make the switch to more renewable materials.
At Intact we are always striving to provide products that give optimum performance in use, are cost-effective and that have the least amount of environmental impact as possible. Therefore, we introduce the bio-based range of hotmelt adhesives to help customers achieve their sustainability objectives.
What are Bio-based hotmelts?
Intact Bio-based hotmelts contain up to 60% renewable, naturally derived resin content raw materials. These adhesives with rosin based tackifiers provide superior adhesion for difficult to bond surfaces such as recycled board and metallised board. These carefully formulated hot melts are not only economical in use-they offer excellent penetration into the fibres of cartons and other materials creating a total bond with excellent heat resistance.
Intact bio-based hotmelt adhesives aim to deliver uncompromising performance in all modern hotmelt application equipment. In addition to this, the products aim to utilise as much renewable content as possible i.e use raw materials which are made from a renewable resource; one that can be used repeatedly and does not run out because it is naturally replaced. This means we endeavor to replace as much of the petroleum or fossil fuel content as we possibly can.
Our long term goal is to have a product which is 100% based on renewable materials. Whilst at the moment this is technically possible, we have found that too many compromises have to be made when using the product and to the point that in a lot of applications the product would be very impractical to use.
However, our bio-based hotmelts can be applied using the same equipment used with traditional hotmelt adhesives. This makes changing to bio-based adhesives less costly. At present our products contain up to 60% renewable raw material content. As new technology becomes available, we will incrementally increase the renewable content up to our long-term goal of having a 100% renewable product.
