H.B. Fuller Co., St. Paul, Minn., introduced two adhesives to help customers get food products packaged and shipped faster.
Joining the Flextra Fast family of products are SFA8605 Solvent-Free Laminating Adhesive and SB7200/XAS2283 Solvent-Based Laminating Adhesive—both designed to safely increase efficiency and reduce working capital.
Flextra Fast SFA8605 Solvent-Free Laminating Adhesives are suitable for snack applications, including stand-up pouches for dry snacks and offers line speeds up to 1,200 fpm. The adhesive enables shipping of goods in as little as two days, with slitting in as little as six hours, pouching/zipping in as little as one day and PAA decay in as few as two days. Flextra Fast SFA8605 adheres well to most substrates, including foil, nylon, metalized films and high-slip sealants and offers excellent appearance.
The Flextra Fast SB7200/XAS2283 Solvent-Based Laminating Adhesive has high green bond strength and is well suited for demanding food packaging applications, including triple layer and greater laminations. The adhesive offers a high level of heat resistance for use in microware, boil-in-bag, hot fill and pasteurization applications, as well as a high level of product resistance to withstand aggressive-filled goods. Flextra Fast SB7200/XAS2283 enables shipping of goods in as little as three days, with slitting in as little as four hours and pouching and zipping in as little as 24-48 hours.
