Extrusion Valve for Water-Based Cohesives
Lock N’ Pop, an Arlington Heights, Ill.-based load containment solution provider from Muller LCS and part of SIG, introduced a new MMDV extrusion valve for its water-based cohesive, which forms a chemical bond with package surfaces that holds firm until it’s time to un-stack the pallets.
The MMDV valve is ideal for applications with very small dimensions and low space requirements to incorporate without product waste or fear of installing new equipment. The MMDV series extrusion valve can also be used with very low pressures, which accommodates most plant air capabilities.
Lock N’ Pop’swater-based cohesive is cold applied, making it safer than hot melt. It does not leave a sticky residue or harm packaging surfaces when unstacking/popping product apart. It also further allows for heavy reductions in traditional packaging such as stretch film, slip sheets, dunnage bags, corner boards and more.
Lock N’ Popsolutions are completely water-soluble, are formulated with FDA-approved ingredients and can be applied to ambient as well as refrigerated or frozen goods.
