High-quality laminating adhesives deliver flexible packaging innovations that meet converting, brand, and consumer needs. Adhesive solutions include polyurethane, solventless, solvent-based, UV, water-based, and films.
Flexible packaging solutions are driven by new consumer trends. Growing global demand calls for appealing, user-friendly, safe, and sustainable packaging solutions. In food and non-food applications, lighter-weight flexible packaging solutions use thinner materials and fewer layers for functionality and sustainability. New film materials provide convenience in consuming, opening, and reclosing products for on-the-go use functionality.
Flexible laminates combine several film/foil layers with different characteristics. To ensure the laminates’ performance, a thorough quality management process is highly recommended. Henkel’s Lioscan system allows customers to do this inline, saving time and material in the production process.
