Packaging solutions provider Packsize has introduced a hot melt adhesive, which the company claims will takes stickiness out of custom box-making.
Packsize Hot Melt Adhesive is based on industry-leading metallocene copolymer technology. Its non-charring formula enhances system performance and lowers production costs.
It is specifically formulated for use with all Packsize On Demand Packaging corrugated box-making machines.
Additionally, the hot melt adhesive is said to provide enhanced adhesion, char resistance, clean machining, and high/low temperature performance in the most demanding conditions for customers.
Custom boxes created leveraging Packsize On Demand Packaging machines include a glue flap of changing types based on the box design.
The company said securing the glue flap is essential and is typically carried out with a hot melt adhesive.
A rigid bond will be created by applying the hot melt directly to the box flap to make sure that the box remains intact and sturdy to withstand heavy handling.
Packsize said that the adhesive not only decreases overall packaging costs compared to other adhesion methods, such as tape, but also significantly improves system performance.
Benefits of the hot melt adhesive include enhanced heat stability/non-charring, low odor, easily removable from overspray, and improves ODP system performance resulting in reduced production.
In 2017, Packsize selected Bell and Howell as a preferred partner to extend the company’s capacity to service and support a range of corrugated On Demand Packaging machines.
As part of the deal, Bell and Howell will provide equipment maintenance, inspection and repair services throughout for the Packsize On Demand Packaging systems that create right-sized boxes for every order in North America.
The firms will also be responsible for upgrading Packsize’s hardware to help extend the life of existing equipment.
Packsize is engaged in developing, manufacturing, licensing, supporting, and selling On Demand Packaging software, systems, and solutions.
