HB Fuller has announced the addition of Flextra Fast SF8700/XR1000 to its family of Flextra Fast laminating adhesives for flexible packaging converting.
The new adhesive system is claimed to offer better cure time to fill safely with food, even for difficult applications such as barrier-to-barrier laminating.
According to the global adhesives provider, Flextra Fast SF8700/XR1000 system will enable packaging converters to laminate barrier films together faster compared to conventional solventless adhesive systems.
HB Fuller North America sales director, converting Joe Tuso said the company, with its latest adhesive, is offering new opportunities to converters for better delivery times and a critical benefit for its customers to safely fill flexible packages.
"Speed, safety and performance have become our mantra for the flexible packaging industry," Tuso said.
The new Flextra Fast product accommodates line speeds up to 1200ft per minute (fpm) with 800fpm on barrier-to-barrier laminations. It also offers peroxyacetic acid (PAA) decay and pouching in as little as one day.
The adhesive system is suitable for PET/PE(EVOH), OPA/PE(EVOH), OPA/Alu high barrier systems, the company said.
