New Solvent-Less White Adhesive by Uflex Gives Converters a Reason to Cheer

Uflex’s Chemicals Business has launched a general-to-medium performance 2K solvent-less PU adhesive FLEXBON 901A/901W that is expected to enable laminators and brand owners to reduce their application costs and substantially enhance their performance by partially replacing white inks.

The Chemicals Business of Uflex is a leading provider of adhesives, printing inks and coatings for a wide range of flexible packaging applications.

This solvent-less white adhesive works well on existing solvent-less lamination machines and will reduce the requirement of white ink coating on printed substrates, thereby giving substantial savings to converters.

This product offers excellent opacity and wettability on metallised substrates. Other key features include good adhesion; suitability for low-temperature applications (35°C to 45°C); and the ability to provide fast decay of primary aromatic amine.

Talking about the new product, Mr Rajesh Bhasin, Uflex Chemicals joint president said: “This innovative and valued development substantially enhances our solvent-less adhesive portfolio. Given the myriad benefits that this adhesive brings for the converters, we will market it globally. The demand is encouraging already.”

Uflex's expertise spans the entire spectrum of flexible packaging applications.
