The Uflex Chemicals Business Unit a part of India’s largest fully integrated multinational flexible packaging materials and solution company, has launched a general-to-medium performance 2K solvent-less PU adhesive called FLEXBON 901A/901W. The new Flexbon solvent-less adhesive enables converters and brand owners to substantially improve flexible packaging performance while reducing their application costs.
The chemicals business of Uflex is a leading provider of adhesives, printing inks and coatings for a wide range of flexible packaging applications. The new Flexbon solvent-less white adhesive works well on existing solvent-less lamination machines and will reduce the requirement of white ink coating on printed substrates, thereby giving substantial savings to converters. This product is claimed to offer excellent opacity and wettability on metallized substrates. Other key features include good adhesion, suitability for low temperature applications (35 to 45 degrees C) and the ability to provide fast decay of primary aromatic amine. Talking about the new product, Rajesh Bhasin, joint president, Uflex Chemicals said, “This innovative and valued development substantially enhances our solvent-less adhesive portfolio. Given the myriad benefits that this adhesive brings for the convertors, we will market it globally. The demand is encouraging already.”
