Avery Dennison to Launch New Self-adhesive Labeling Technology for Cans

Posted By ASC, Wednesday, September 16, 2015

Avery Dennison has launched their new AeroDress technology for adhesives labeling on aluminum and tinplate cans.  AeroDress is designed for low-volume production runs with the option of late-stage differentiation and relabeling of obsolete printed cans. It can be implemented through small changes in existing production lines, for example adding hot air equipment to shrink the label and dress the can. Avery's AeroDress technology is compatible with letterpress, flexo, gravure, silk screen, and foil printing techniques. Lead time is short with competitive pricing on applications with 20,000 units or less. AeroDress is part of the Select Solutions Portfolio launched in Europe. Rob Groen, Marketing Manager at Avery Dennison, noted: “Obsolete cans can be relabeled with this technology, without having to compromise on shelf appeal. The benefits also extend much further. Small-scale applications can be completed quickly, and it's great for inventory control and supply chain flexibility.”

Henkel Launches Food Safe Modular Aliphatic Adhesive Systems

Posted By ASC, Wednesday, September 9, 2015

Henkel has introduced Loctite Liofol LA 2760 / LA 5891-21 and Loctite Liofol LA 2760 / LA 7371, aliphatic adhesive systems. The new systems cater to retort processing and flexible packaging applications. LA 2760 / LA 5891-21 is suitable for both inner and outer layers and conforms to FDA 177.1390. LA 2760/LA 7371 provides room temperature curing. These adhesives provide the performance needed for retort processes that require temperature resistance and extend shelf life of food products. The new systems area also up to 40% solids, which reduces ethyl acetate consumptions without reducing wetting properties. Stefan Tomke, Henkel Technical Manager, summarized the advantages of the new line, “The new modular aliphatic adhesive system is dedicated for high performance applications covering low migration and fast curing products. It offers high reliability and sustainability for food and non-food packaging and delivers best results for film/film structures.”

Elastic Sealant Protects Suture Line after Gastro Surgery

Posted By ASC, Wednesday, September 9, 2015

Sylys Surgical Sealant is a novel surgical sealant that helps reduce complications after gastrointestinal anastomosis surgeries. An anastomosis refers to the surgical joining of two tubular structures, in this case joining two sections of the intestine after a portion has been removed. A common and potentially dangerous complication from this type of surgery is leakage at the incision site. Anastomotic leak is the most devastating complication associated with intestinal resection, contributing to morbidity and mortality,” said James McCormick, DO with Forbes Hospital (Monroeville, PA, USA). Sylys Surgical Sealant can be used in conjunction with staples or suture to limit leaks. The elastic and re-absorbable sealant adheres to tissue and provides a flexible seal over the suture line.  Notably, it can withstand pressures more than twice the typical pressure of intestinal peristalsis.  In the first two weeks after surgery, the sealant provides a strong and flexible reinforcement. After that it begins to biodegrade and safely breaks down.

Automotive Coatings, Adhesives, and Sealants (CAS) Market - Global Industry Size, Share, Trends Analysis

Posted By ASC, Wednesday, September 9, 2015

Automotive sealants, coatings, and adhesives enhance the aesthetic and performance of vehicles. Adhesive and sealants bond dissimilar materials, distribute stress, reduce cabin noise, protect from weather, prevent UV damage, block dust and debris, and prevent passage of liquids or gasses. The market share of automotive adhesives and sealants is rapidly growing. Based on application, the automotive coatings, adhesives, and sealants market can be placed in four categories: exterior, interior, under-the-hood, and other applications. Exterior applications are currently the largest segment, followed by interior applications. Adhesives and sealants are used in light, medium and heavy-duty vehicles, with light vehicles leading the market in both OEM and aftermarket end-user applications. Geographically, North America and Asia Pacific are the leading markets, with light commercial vehicle production of 9,864,262 units and 5,037,972 units respectively.

Bostik's New Video Showcases Actor/Environmentalist Ed Begley, Jr. and his LEED Platinum House

Posted By ASC, Wednesday, September 9, 2015

Bostik, Inc. is featuring activist and actor Ed Begley, Jr. in a video about his new LEED Platinum certified home. The home features Bostik’s ltra-Set® SingleStep2™ adhesive for wood flooring installation. Begley notes that this was the ideal choice for flooring installation because it is, "low VOC, provided a moisture barrier, contained high recycled content and [was] easy to apply." The home makes use of sustainable oak flooring recycled from older buildings and barns, as a result builders needed an adhesive that would simplify a complex installation while meeting strict LEED requirements. Ultra-Set® SingleStep2™ makes use of Bostik’s patent-pending Thickness Control™ Spacer Technology and AXIOS® Tri-Linking™ polymer to provide an exceptionally strong and versatile adhesive that also provides sound abatement and moisture resistance. See the video here.

FDA Approves First Self-Contained, Mobile Continuous Blood Glucose Monitor from Dexcom

Posted By ASC, Wednesday, September 9, 2015

The US Food & Drug Administration has approved the first continuous glucose monitor (CGM) for people with diabetes. The G5 glucose monitor manufactured by Dexcom has a design much like a Band-aid, with and adhesive backing that attaches a sensor and transmitter to the user. The transmitter can then relay information about the person’s glucose level to an Apple iOS device. Compatibility with Andriod devices is expected next year.  The device takes advantage of bio-compatible adhesive to provide long-term monitoring. At present, the CGM still requires twice daily calibration with the traditional finger-stick method. In the future, Dexcom expects to untether the device from finger sticks, moving toward a goal of one calibration per day and extended 10-day wear.

Hemostasis and Tissue Sealing Agents Market to Experience Significant Growth Due to Aggressive Marketing Strategies

Posted By ASC, Wednesday, September 9, 2015

The hemostasis and tissue sealing agents market has seen steady growth, in part due to aggressive marketing. New hemostat and tissue sealing agents are regularly introduced and meet a wide range of needs in surgery and other medical applications. Tissue sealants have been especially successful because of a rise in the geriatric population and a corresponding need for sealing methods that minimize post-operative complications and speed healing. In the future, growth may be slowed by cost and strict regulatory requirements. However, adhesives and sealants account for 36% of the total hemostasis and tissue sealing agents market in North America, with continued growth expected. The Asia Pacific region is expected to have the fastest growth in the coming years. Major manufacturers in the hemostasis and tissue sealing market include CryoLife, Inc., Johnson & Johnson, Baxter, Advance Medical Solution Group, and Cohera Medical, Inc.
