Bottle labels: adhesive applications

Bostik bottle label adhesives ensure clean, efficient and stable machining for more efficient operation. Our bottle labelling solutions are suitable for use with glass, polyolefin, and food-grade plastic bottles such as PET. 

We provide a truly versatile offering of technologies in this area, with products ranging in viscosity, longevity and strength of adhesion, pressure sensitivity, and functionality in both hot and cold environments. Overall, this allows you to choose from a wide selection of chemical formulations that cater to various factory environments, application processes and operation speeds.

Our water-based products are formulated to reduce flagging and simplify your clean-up, while our hot melt technologies provide strong adhesion for various applications and line speeds, from 100 bpm right through to over 1,000 bpm.

If you’re working with beer bottle labels, or other forms of glass bottle labels, our non-casein solutions are ideal. Offering high wet tack and superior performance on cold materials, these products are available in varying viscosities. For soft drinks, our semi-pressure sensitive labels work perfectly with carbonated bottles due to their low melt viscosity and high cohesive strength. These properties eliminate flagging during the filling process and guarantee complete wet-out on the label.
