Henkel Technomelt Supra 90 hot melt adhesive
The Technomelt Supra 90 hot melt adhesive is suitable for packaging products in the food and beverage (F&B) industry. The adhesive’s high molecular weight is designed to reduce the chances of contamination and enhance food safety. The hot melt solution also offers benefits such as high bond strength, ease of application and quick set time.
It uses metallocene technology that is designed as a better alternative than ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA). Solutions that use EVAs tend to have limited thermal stability and are prone to char build-up, which creates a need to replace parts of the application system. In contrast, Technomelt Supra 90 avoids char build-up, which is claimed to result in better performance and less downtime.
For the F&B sector in Australia and New Zealand, the product is used for carton closing and sealing. It has a low ability to migrate between layers of packaging due to its high molecular weight, thus reducing the chances of contamination entering the packaged product. Any tampering with the carton packaging is also immediately visible, thereby discouraging unauthorised openings and improving food safety.
