We’re certain you’ll have our adhesive in your house!

 

At Interlock Adhesives, we provide specialist adhesive solutions for a wide variety of applications – many of which you can find in your local supermarket! From fruit and veg to household essentials we have the adhesive solutions for all.

Our market leading hotmelt and water-based adhesives are food safe and are designed to reduce consumption & increase production efficiency.

We’re also big on sustainability, with many supermarkets actively changing packaging and looking for initiatives to improve the supply chains impact on the environment, Interlock Adhesives has some ways to do this that are easy to implement and, in many cases, have no requirement for new equipment. For example, we’re proud to be able to supply the world’s first CARBON NEGATIVE hotmelt adhesive. Made from 81% ISCC certified renewable content, the Technomelt Supra Eco provides a negative cradle to gate carbon saving of -0.4419kg per KG of adhesive used! This can mean very large carbon savings all backed up and verified by the ISCC.

To further promote sustainability, we also provide a wide range of low temp options to help save energy costs. Running from as low as 100°C, our Technomelt Supra Cool range allows you to go up to 30% further with the same amount of adhesive and saves up to 50% in energy use.

 

Our Areas of expertise:

Packaging – We have a fantastic range of hotmelt and water-based adhesives that are designed for packaging production and end of line. Our Technomelt and Aquence adhesives are the perfect way to improve your case/carton sealing, tray erection, corrugated & straight-line gluing processes. Our market leading adhesives are designed to increase production efficiency by reducing consumption, energy costs by over 50% and machine downtime. High tack solutions are also available for difficult substrates such as MetPol, greaseproof board and polymer coatings to ensure a strong bond.

 

Deep Freeze – it’s important to select a hotmelt grade that is suitable for sub-zero temperatures, as otherwise the adhesive bond can become brittle and fail. We have adhesive grades that are suitable for this, thanks to their excellent processing properties and thermal stability, helping to ensure no failed bonds.

 

Pallet Stabilisation – A fantastic, eco-friendly alternative to plastic shrink wrap! Pallet stabilisation adhesives work by securing everything together as one whole unit, once it is applied to the outer packaging, to prevent any movement in transit. The individual pieces can then be removed as required with all packaging intact. Pallet stabilisation adhesives can reduce film consumption by up to 90% and reduce material costs by up to 80%! Best of all the return on investment is often under two years.

 

Straw attachment – Another application for our adhesives is straw attachment. Our Technomelt and Aquence adhesives boast low migration and are completely food safe, making them perfect for the application of drinking straws. They are also extremely water resistant and feature high heat resistance and processing efficiency.

 

Container Labels – Our market leading adhesives are perfect for can, PET and plastic container labelling. They are designed to improve your application process by reducing the application temperature, increase efficiency and mileage and coping with high machine speeds. Our adhesives also come with complete food contact documentation for peace of mind.

 

Bottle Labels – Our Aquence water based adhesives are engineered to work efficiently with glass bottles and jars, multi-way containers, aluminium foil and other surfaces to ensure a superior bond. The Aquence range has a multitude of outstanding features that includes exceptional ice water and condensation water resistance (IWR, CWR), improved cleaning of machine parts thanks to its precise and clean application and is casein free!

 

Tissue & Towel – Our specialised tissue and towel adhesives are designed to improve production efficiency and are cost effective thanks to their clean running properties. The range boasts excellent adhesion regardless of ply and are suitable for areas such as lamination, paper pick up, core winding, tail sealing, tissue softener and fragrances, packaging and more! Our adhesives conform to the highest safety standards and have raw material consistency to give peace of mind in production. Through a better production environment, our adhesives help to reduce stringing, throwing and splashing, pattern skips and uneven coat weights.
