Featured horizontal flow packaging adhesive products

Turbo-Seal® C1775B and C2881

Turbo-Seal® C1775B and C2881 are water-based cohesive coatings for candy and snack food flexible packaging applications. They are based on a blend of natural rubber latex and synthetic rubber latex. Formulated to be low foaming on high speed coating equipment, these products also have high flexibility and minimal blocking to suitable release films and laquers. 

Laminating adhesives

Bostik’s flexible packaging laminating adhesive products provide systems used for film to foil and film to film applications in the food and medical markets. 

Laminating adhesive applications

Bostik’s laminating adhesive products are used in films, pouches, ink binders and primers. These products are designed to meet the innovative needs of the flexible packaging market. 

Bostik’s Herberts line is comprised of dry bond laminating adhesives for flexible packaging. These high performing adhesives can be either solvent-based or solvent-less. Bostik’s solvent-based Herberts laminating adhesives are polyester-based adhesives applied out of ethyl acetate or acetone using a hardener. 

 

The solvent-less adhesives for laminating are one-and-two component systems designed for use in medium to high-performance laminations. Both types of Herberts can be tailored to the most demanding flexible packaging applications, up to and including retort stable laminations. 

Laminating adhesive products

Herberts LF191X3 is a high-performing, one component laminating adhesive useful in lamination containing SiOx or AIOx coated films.

Herberts EPS179/EPS74

Herberts EPS179/EPS74 is a solvent-based system that can adhere to standard films such as PET, aluminum and OPP and more unique films, like PVDF.

Herberts EPS71 is a high solids, dry laminating adhesive film good for many film to film and film to aluminum laminations. It has good heat resistance when used with proper hardeners as well as passing sterilization resistance on many film to film laminations.

Lidding

Bostik’s flexible packaging adhesive products are also used in lidding applications. These heat seal coatings are manufactured using a combination of technologies. For example, Bostik’s lidding adhesive products use hot melt systems based on polymers such as EVA for yogurt wrapping.
