New Hot Melt Adhesive Addresses Agricultural Packaging Problems

Posted By ASC, Tuesday, March 28, 2017

Fresh produce packaged in corrugated cardboard trays or cellular propylene imposes a unique set of demands on packaging adhesives. The produce is live, it is subjected to refrigeration, and it may be transported by refrigerated sea freight for several days or weeks only to be subjected to contrasting temperatures during inspection and distribution after its arrival.

Although metallocene hot-melt adhesives have been widely adopted in industrial packaging, they have not previously demonstrated any advantages that would make them worth using in agricultural packaging. After extensive research, it was found that a new formulation would be needed to make metallocene hot-melt adhesives useful to the agricultural sector.

BADRINAS, an established Spanish manufacturer of hot melt adhesives, has announced its soon to be released SEMPACOL Innovation AGRI adhesive. This will allow the fruit and vegetable packaging industry the option of a metallocene hot-melt adhesive specifically formulated for agricultural produce packaging.
