GERMANY • Henkel will present examples of product innovations and system solutions for adhesives at FachPack from 27-29 September at Hall 1, Stand 1-106. The personalization trend has reached the flexible packaging industry. This brings with it an increased industry interest in digital printing technologies. Henkel said it offers a fit for digital printing, whether customers seek solvent-based, solvent-free or water-based adhesive systems.
Loctite Liofol LA 7764/LA 6164 is a solvent-free laminating adhesive system for food packaging like snack packaging. It is characterized by a long pot-life of up to 45 minutes and a low application temperature of 40°C (104°F) with excellent optics due to superior wetting properties. This adhesive is specifically designed for reverse digital print.
As a water-based laminating adhesive system, Loctite Liofol LA 29-208/LA 5804 is used for dry lamination for food packaging. It has a long pot-life and makes very fast further processing possible. Additionally, Henkel offers a solvent-based system Loctite Liofol LA 2760/LA 5028 for higher demanding applications for food and non-food end use with high solids application, fast cure and fast decay of primary aromatic amines (PAA). All these systems are designed for food contact and are compatible with digital printing validated by HP Indigo.
