Sustainable adhesives, sealants and surface treatments
Today, Henkel is the world market leader in adhesives, sealants and surface treatments, and many people come into contact with its products every day without realising it: cars, textiles, mobile phones, packaging, shoes or even aircraft.
With innovative and sustainable adhesive solutions, Henkel strives to become your partner of choice in packaging – offering solutions for case and carton sealing, flexible packaging, labelling and paper converting.
Consumer packaging solutions
Henkel’s Technomelt® Supra series offers customers sustainable hotmelt solutions and total cost reduction. With Henkel’s patented ProControl adhesive monitoring system, the customer can see the Technomelt® Supra saving potential, and therefore optimise adhesive consumption.
With the technology of metallocene catalysed polymers, substantial savings and higher productivity are important advantages of using Technomelt® Supra. The innovative adhesive is more efficient and sustainable than conventional hotmelts; it also increases productivity through better machinability.
Total cost reduction:
- Less glue consumption by up to 30%-60% compared with EVA
- Superior bonding performance
- Less scrap and rework
- Less maintenance and downtime due to excellent thermal stability
- Environmentally sustainable
- Approved for direct food contact
