More and more frequently, we are seeing added pressure to the packaging and labelling sectors to improve their carbon and plastic footprint. Packaging alone a huge industry that, according to WRAP, “of the 4.7 million tonnes used for consumer goods just under half is recycled (40-45%)”. As a result, a lot of companies are seeking out new methods that are more sustainable and cost effective with high production efficiency to create a more circular economy.
Our new green range has a bio based content that is the first step in renewable adhesives. We have partnered with Dow Chemical to formulate unique new products with a full bio-based profile, and look forward to launching these soon.
Renewable raw materials are just part of our drive to become more sustainable, with low temperature products also reducing emissions and lowering energy consumption. you will see ‘bio-based’ products being advertised on the market as the next step forward to a more sustainable future with the assumption that all bio-based adhesives are completely recyclable, this is not the case. It is part of a more circular approach - use less product, use renewables where possible, use less power, and produce less waste. We are here to help you with your sustainability goals. Our new ‘green’ adhesives are a small but critical part of the jigsaw.
