Frequently Asked Questions about Paper Bag & Industrial Sack Adhesives 


What is the best paper mailer bag adhesive?

The paper mailer bag is sustainable packaging and easy to open and easy to return for e-commerce shipment. It has a second adhesive strip on the flap that can be used to reclose the bag, which makes it unique for e-commerce. Mailer paper bags are more eco-friendly. It is one of the most significant advantages of using them. The manufacturers are looking for a more sustainable and efficient solution. 

Different adhesives, such as hot melt or water-based glue, are used to make paper bags. Bostik has launched a new range of adhesive KizenTM based on hot melt technology, high quality, and food-grade standards. Besides ease of use and strong bond performance for cardboard packaging, KizenTM also works well on many substrates. These include challenges to bonding to materials, such as high recycled content and certain surface treatments.


Why does hot melt technology fit the best for paper bag sealing?

Hot melt adhesives are solid at standard temperature and non-hazardous. They become liquid after being heated above their softening point, at which time they can be processed. They can immediately bond the two parts on the substrate by cooling. That adhesive technology contains both natural and synthetic polymers. The melting of the adhesive is processed between 100°c to 170°C, which kills most bacteria and viruses.

Hot melts can fast build up internal strength after cooling, allowing rapid assembly and additional processing. Hot melt adhesives are used in various industrial applications, mainly in food and pharmaceutical environments, as they are free of water and solvent after application. One of the primary users is the packaging sector, such as manufacturing packaging from paper, cardboard, and corrugated board.


How Bostik's adhesive can improve your e-commerce packaging and production line?

Every year, the e-commerce sector grows rapidly, requiring packaging that can support the industry's vast growth. KizenTM, the next generation of hot melt adhesives based on water-white technology, is a packaging plant and manufacturing line revolutionizer. The fast set speed of KizenTM can help increase line speeds for short compression period applications and solve the cost-effective issue. It is perfect for projects that demand recycled content adhesion. In addition, Bostik can help you meet your manufacturing demands by ensuring supply availability and stability.
