Paperboard Industry faces disruption due to COVID-19 Pandemic

Aug 5, 2021 | Events, News

The Coronavirus pandemic has been tough on many industry sectors across the last 18 months, bringing huge levels of uncertainty and disruption to delivery schedules, sales demand, and raw material supply.

One industry that has suffered as a result, is the paperboard manufacturers with casualties including German producer, Zanders Paper, filing for insolvency in March 2021.  According to Pulpaper News, “Zanders explained it was unable to fully compensate for the effects of this challenging situation despite its increased operating profitability and fundamentally good positioning.”

These challenges in the market have spread across the supply chain and limited the label paper grades available to UK beverage producers. Labelling quality and consistency has been impacted for many companies, in particularly spirits producers using metallised papers in heavier grammages.

At Interlock Adhesives, our Aquence adhesives products are effective water-based labelling adhesives. Suitable across different paper boards and label types, including labels from suppliers such as Tipografic, Darley and Royston. Our solutions have already shown to be more than capable of dealing with the problems that the available alternatives have posed.

Should you be interested to find out how we can support you in this changing market, please do not hesitate to reach out to our team today.
