But just how can our e-commerce solutions help you?
Innovative Packaging Products
We provide adhesives for a wide range of packaging operations:
The most common way to transport goods sold online is in boxes, this is a safe and secure way to move multiple orders quickly and safely. There are many box and case sealers available in the market and our Technomelt E-COM adhesive will work with them all and provide the best performance possible to ensure a smooth and clean running operation. The potential savings with Technomelt E-COM are massive as consumption is reduced and the self-cleaning properties mean not only a clean operation put lowers downtime and spare part spend. We can even lower your application temperature to include an energy saving.
Packing with automated box on demand machines such as CMC’s Cartonwrap and Gensis machines along with and SEE/B+’s I-Pack and e-Cube systems has become a great way to create right size boxes for orders cutting the wasted space in boxes and lowering packaging and transport costs. These applications require excellent performance for the hot melt adhesive uses as the memory in the board used is very high so high adhesion is needed along with excellent heat stability to prevent charring and nozzle blockages.
Technomelt E-COM E1, E2 and G3 all provide excellent performance for box closing machines such as B+ Equipment (Seal Air/ SEE). Henkel’s new Technomelt E-COM products makes use of Henkel’s vast knowledge of hotmelt adhesives and has been engineered to be the best possible product for e-commerce where longer open time and higher adhesion is needed.
Bagging items is one of the most common solutions for e-commerce packaging. This process conventionally uses polybags; however paper wrapping is fast becoming one of the most sustainable options. Paper wrapping has been used in the magazine industry for many years and is an exceptional way of completely cutting single use plastic tapes, saving up to 40% in packaging costs!
This method requires an operator/conveyor to feed the items into the machine belt of the paper wrapping machine, which then wraps the goods with paper sealed at the seam and ends with pressure sensitive adhesive. Paper wrapping is typically used for small items such as books, shoes, clothes or consumer electronics and can be made to size, meaning little wasted space in the package and reduced shipping costs. Sitma and CMC machinery are leading the way with this innovative form of packing.
Our Technomelt E-COM G10 is currently the most advanced paper wrapping adhesive on the market. It boasts outstanding adhesion and features clear drying properties, meaning a more professional packaging appearance. Technomelt E-Com G10 uses Henkel’s unique Easyflow technology, meaning it can be vacuum transferred directly into the adhesive application tank unlike other pressure sensitive adhesives. This method helps to increase operator safety and melt rate of the adhesive, ensuring a smoother application.
One of the most popular ways of sealing packages is using silicon backed tape, which is expensive and even the more sustainable options hinder the recycling process. Also pressure from consumers and the need for more aesthetically pleasing packaging, many organisations are looking to become more sustainable and prove a better opening experience for customers.
Our specialised Technomelt E-COM adhesives offer a plastic free solution to secure packages during transit. This has a number of benefits such as improved appearance of packaging, better security and tamper evidence and increased structural integrity as well helping to eliminate single use plastic altogether. Using tape can also compromise the recyclability of the packaging as it can be incredibly difficult to remove during the recycling process.
For the ultimate sustainable e-commerce adhesive solution, our Technomelt E-COM G4 Eco is perfect for helping to achieve net zero carbon emission targets. For each kilo of E-COM G4 Eco used, 0.44kg of carbon is saved, compared to standard hotmelts which
have a carbon footprint of 2-3kg. This is achieved with 81% bio based material and using a mass balanced approach all independently approved by the ISCC.
