The reduced footprint is enabled by a proprietary formulation of Kraton’s SYLVALITE 2200 biobased tackifiers developed with Revolution rosin ester technology and Dow’s AFFINITY GA polyolefin elastomers.

Henkel, Kraton and Dow aim to meet consumer demand for sustainable packaging and make these solutions more attainable for consumer goods manufacturers. As a result of the combined investment, TECHNOMELT SUPRA 100 LE and TECHNOMELT SUPRA 106M LE will be available to existing customers at no additional cost.

The TECHNOMELT product portfolio includes other biobased formulations, as well as low-temperature hot melt adhesive formulations.

Kraton Pine Chemicals president Minco van Breevoort commented: “We take pride in driving the transition towards sustainable adhesive and packaging solutions.”

Dow global director of sustainability Haley Lowry stated: “We believe in the power of collaboration with like-minded companies who share Dow’s values and ambition. With Henkel and Kraton, we’re not just forging collaborations, we’re creating a sustainable ecosystem.”

Henkel head of sustainability for adhesive technologies Ulla Hüppe added: “Sustainability is not just our responsibility to future generations but integral to our long-term success as a company.”

Henkel recently received certification for its water-based acrylic pressure-sensitive adhesive, Aquence PS 3017 RE, confirming its compatibility with polyethylene terephthalate (PET) cycling processes.
