Dow Packaging and Specialty Plastics, a Midland, Mich.-based business unit of DowDuPont Material Science, launched ADCOTE HP Solvent-Borne Adhesives, which utilizes the company’s adhesive experience to enhance sustainability, health and food safety, durability and flexible performance.

ADCOTE HP is said to be the most advanced and flexible high-performance solvent-borne adhesive for ready meals packaging, juice stand-up pouches and more.

The technology offers a long pot life and enables customers to run solvent-borne adhesives at 50% or more solids.

Additionally, ADCOTE HP enhances temperature resistance, and passed both boil-in-bag and heat aging tests with no observed defects while maintaining bond performance.

Dow continues to invest and drive innovation in both solvent-borne and solventless adhesives for the packaging, textiles and hygiene markets. In September, the company announced the commercialization of PacAcel™ Solventless Adhesives as well as SYMBIEX™ Solventless Adhesives, developed for use in combination with Nordmeccanica’s Duplex SL One Shot™ lamination line.
