Pune, India, 28 March 2022, HB Fuller will showcase several innovations that address growing trends in sustainable consumer goods and eCommerce packaging at Printpack India 2022 at the Expo Centre in Greater Noida from 26 to 30 May 2022.
HB Fuller’s new food-safe solution, sold under the Swift tak brand, addresses the increasing demand for paper straws for a variety of end-use applications in the foodservice, institutional, and residential industries, which are projected to spur this market upwards, globally. Moreover, increased consumer demand for low-impact straws, upcoming government reform, and the many campaigns to ban single-use plastic are expected to contribute to the expansion of paper straws in our everyday life.
Additionally, HB Fuller will introduce a metallocene range of solutions for bookbinding applications. Its metallocene-based hot melt adhesives offer several advantages in the production process and end-use applications, such as lower coat weight, increased adhesion strength and robust temperature resistance. This improved adhesion also contributes to prolong the product’s life and ensure durability. Another example of this technology is that it enables the recyclability of books and reduces adhesive consumption, which are important factors for the graphic arts industry.
As more people shop online, merchants and manufacturers will need high-performing adhesives and hassle-free, sustainable packaging. Therefore, the company will showcase innovative solutions for e-commerce packaging through a complete line of pressure-sensitive adhesives under the Swift melt brand that enables the bonding of tough substrates for a variety of applications, including pressure-sensitive tapes or labels, container labelling, and courier bag applications. HB Fuller’s global, one-stop provider for eCommerce packaging solutions and its team of experts can assist manufacturers in streamlining processes and creating packaging that will improve the customer experience, while keeping products safe throughout the supply chain.
In addition, the company will demonstrate how its reinforcement and opening tapes portfolio can help improve the performance of corrugated and folding carton packaging. These tape technologies can reduce damage or add functionality, creating better performing boxes and packages. The range of starch additives under the Fullrez and Cor-Weld brands, can augment water-resistance to many types of packaging products, while improving board quality, and reducing waste.
