Flexible Packaging Adhesive Chemical Business:
Dow Adhesives, formerly Rohm and Haas, brings its wide-reaching flexible packaging adhesives portfolio to work every day, around the globe. Converters have come to rely on the latest innovations in bio-friendly water-based, solventless and specialty adhesives for nearly every packaging application — from general purpose through high performance, including new cold seal, heat-seal and clear retort adhesives.
Flexible packing for foods and others consumer goods has been around for a long time and now is essential for efficient distribution, protection and economics. Today's packaging could not exist in its myriad forms and functionalities without, amongst many other components, the integral part played by flexible packaging adhesives. One of the earliest classes of material used for adhesives to marry dissimilar materials together were natural products based on waxes, petroleum exudates, pine gums, and various sugars, starches and proteins. These are still used, but not in the scope of today's more sophisticated packaging, and will not be discussed here. Rather the focus will be on synthetic materials created specifically for the laminating adhesives
Flexible packaging adhesives are predominately based on urethane and acrylic chemistry. Backbone options create unique performance properties. Changes in composition determine whether the adhesive will be solvent, water or solventless based. While the starting components are limited to FDA compliance lists, the resultant adhesives are complex. These meet the challenges from simple, non-demanding packages to the most severe requirements.
