Types of paper and packaging adhesives available on the market

There are a variety of adhesives available for use in the paper and packaging industry, each with its own unique properties and advantages. Some of the most commonly used adhesives include water-based, and hot melt adhesives.

Water based adhesives

Water based adhesives are the most commonly used adhesives in the paper and packaging industry, due to their excellent bonding strength, low cost, and ease of use. These adhesives are typically made from natural or synthetic polymers, such as Polyvinyl Acetate (PVA), and are commonly used for bonding paper, cardboard, and other porous materials.

Hot melt-based adhesives

Hot melt adhesives are another popular choice for paper and packaging applications. These adhesives are made from EVA copolymers, are melted and applied to the substrate using specialised equipment. These glues offer excellent bonding strength and are often used for high-speed packaging operations.

What are some common applications of paper and packaging adhesives?

Paper and packaging adhesives are used in a variety of applications, including carton sealing, label bonding, paperboard lamination, and specialty packaging.

Can paper and packaging adhesives withstand exposure to moisture?

It depends on the specific adhesive and application. Some water-based adhesives are designed to withstand exposure to moisture, while others may lose bonding strength when exposed to moisture. If you are not sure please give our friendly team a call – we are here to help.

How can I ensure proper bonding when using paper and packaging adhesives?

Proper bonding depends on several factors, including substrate preparation, adhesive application method, and curing time. Please follow the instructions for substrate preparation and adhesive application, and allow the adhesive to cure for the recommended amount of time before handling.

Can paper and packaging adhesives be used for food packaging?

Yes, there are paper and packaging adhesives that are specifically designed for food packaging applications. These adhesives are formulated to be safe for use with food and comply with food packaging regulations.

What are some environmental considerations when using paper and packaging adhesives?

Environmental considerations include the use of environmentally friendly adhesives, such as water-based adhesives, and the disposal of packaging materials bonded with adhesives. Consider using recyclable materials and minimising waste wherever possible.

How to select the right paper and packaging adhesive?

One of the key considerations when selecting an adhesive for paper and packaging applications is the type of substrate being bonded. For example, water-based adhesives are ideal for porous substrates such as paper and cardboard but will take a while to cure. Hot melt adhesives are suited to less porous substrates such as timber and hardboard with a faster cure time.

Another important consideration is the application method. Some adhesives are designed for use with specific application methods, such as spray, roll, or brush application. It is important to choose an adhesive that is compatible with the equipment and application method being used to ensure proper bonding and adhesion.

In addition to bonding strength and substrate compatibility, other factors such as cost, environmental impact, and safety considerations must also be taken into account when selecting an adhesive for paper and packaging applications. Water based adhesives are generally considered to be more environmentally friendly and safer to handle than solvent-based adhesives, although they may not be suitable for all applications.

Can paper and packaging adhesives be recycled?

It depends on the specific adhesive and recycling process being used. Some adhesives may interfere with the recycling process and should be avoided. You should consult with a recycling specialist to determine the best practices for recycling paper and packaging materials bonded with adhesives if this is of a concern.
