Henkel Ecommerce End of Line Adhesive
Henkel’s range of dedicated e-commerce adhesives is second to none and is the perfect partner for your application. First what are the key Considerations when choosing E-commerce Adhesives:
Durability and Strength
Look for e-commerce adhesives that offer strong bonding capabilities to withstand the rigors of shipping and handling. Your adhesive should be able to maintain its integrity even in varying temperatures and during long-distance transportation.
Opt for e-commerce adhesives that are user-friendly and easy to apply. Efficient application saves time and effort, especially when dealing with high order volumes. Consider adhesives with user-friendly applicators or those that can be easily integrated into your existing packaging systems.
Compatibility with Different SurfacesEnsure that the adhesive you choose is compatible with various surfaces commonly used in e-commerce, such as cardboard or plastic. Adhesives that adhere well to different materials offer versatility and flexibility in packaging and labelling.
Environmentally Friendly OptionsAs sustainability becomes increasingly important, consider eco-friendly adhesive options. Look for adhesives that are recyclable, can show a carbon saving, or made from renewable resources. Choosing environmentally conscious adhesives aligns with your brand’s values and contributes to a greener e-commerce industry.
Using Henkel’s vast knowledge of the case and carton sealing market Henkel’s product engineers were able to take these developments and create a concise product offering that provides the best possible solution for this application.
