Adhesive innovation linked to UV inspection technology

HB Fuller has launched two water based adhesives containing a UV fluorescing agent, developed to help corrugators achieve zero defects in their production lines.

HB Fuller has launched two water based adhesives containing a UV fluorescing agent, developed to help corrugators achieve zero defects in their production lines.

Ipacoll PWC 3107 I UV, for typical nozzle or jet applications, and Ipacoll WD 3930, for wheel-in-pot systems, are both specifically formulated with a UV indicator, designed to work with Valco Melton’s ClearVision camera inspection systems.

HB Fuller says these two "high performing products" offer consistently clean and effective performance, to help manufacturers optimise production efficiency by minimising adhesive-related downtime. Both products are also said to show versatility with strong adhesion to a wide variety of typical case and carton materials.

Stuart Jenkinson, the company’s business director, says: "With these exciting products, manufacturers can simply set their machine to run, and have confidence that it will continue without interruption from adhesive-related issues. Furthermore, the formulation of these adhesives has been closely tied to optimising performance with the camera detection system, which is vital to maximising the effect of this quality control technology."
