Increase the Sustainability of Packaging Processes

This year at interpack, the adhesive manufacturer Jowat demonstrates that more sustainable packaging processes are possible due to modern adhesives.

On the path to greener processes and products, companies need extensive expertise and a 360-degree perspective. This is because sustainability has many different facets. And modern adhesives are an important factor in the equation.

As a leader in innovation and technology, Jowat pays special attention to the development of its sustainable portfolio. Jowat’s Green Adhesives product line provides a full package of tailor-made adhesives and comprehensive services for sustainable packaging.
Modern low-temperature hot melt adhesives, for example, provide a substantial energy saving potential coupled with high performance and process quality. Traditional hot melt adhesives are generally applied at temperatures of up to 180°C. Jowat-Toptherm® 851.99 has been optimized for packaging processes and can be processed at energy-saving temperatures starting from 99°C. This makes it particularly interesting for applications involving temperature-sensitive products, e.g. frozen food or sweets. The MOAH-free hot melt adhesive also impresses in packaging processes of dry and fatty nonperishable food products.
For those who want to couple energy savings with the use of renewable raw materials, the powerful biobased hot melt adhesives of the Jowatherm® GROW series provide the right solution. Jowatherm® GROW 853.20 is particularly sustainable due to a DIN-verified biobased raw material content of 33% and can be applied in different packaging processes at reduced temperatures starting from 120°C.
Both products impress with a clean string cut-off at the nozzle and the immaculate processing characteristics typical of Jowat packaging adhesives. When used, they can reduce the soiling of machine parts and packaging materials. Unnecessary material consumption can be prevented.
The Green Adhesives to be showcased by Jowat at interpack demonstrate that sustainable bonding processes are already possible and economically viable.
