Laminating Adhesives for Flexible Packaging

The variety of modern flexible packaging products that are available today would not be possible without modern adhesive systems. The evolution of the packaging industry has closely matched the development of new adhesive materials and production processes. These trends have led to high quality and technically demanding packaging structures required by the consumer.
