Adhesives for case, carton and tray sealing
Optimise efficiency and total costs on your packaging line with reliable high-performance hot-melt adhesives from Paramelt. Our sealing products include Plastomelt™ EVA hot melts and Excelta™ metallocene hot melts.
Our hot melts keep your packaging safely sealed from deep-freeze to high-temperature conditions. In the case of low-melt or sift-proof applications, Paramelt has the right solution.
For specialty packaging applications, such as ream wrapping or straw attachment, one can use specific grades of Paramelt’s packaging hot melts and water-based heat seal dispersions.
