Alliance to deliver bio-based hotmelt adhesives

Friday, 18 January, 2013


Henkel and DaniMer Scientific have formed an alliance to develop bio-based hotmelt adhesives for the consumer packaging market.

The alliance will combine Henkel’s expertise in hotmelt adhesive formulation, application and global footprint with DaniMer’s expertise in biopolymer science, proprietary production capabilities and the company’s bio-based technology platform.

“The renewably sourced feedstocks that we use to produce these specific hotmelt adhesives are not derived from any direct food chain resources,” said Daniel Carraway, CEO and founder of DaniMer Scientific.

“They are also unique in that we have enabled the use of recycled renewable content in certain adhesive grades which allows us to further diversify our supply chain.

“The alliance announced today between Henkel and DaniMer will include development of a full family of bio-based hotmelt adhesives that can be applied to a wide range of customer operating needs, including general-purpose end of line, high-performance end of line, labelling, and even specialised applications such as frozen food packaging.”

“We believe this technology, along with a range of other technologies Henkel is working on, will also play a role in assisting customers in reducing their dependence on petroleum-based materials in their packaging operations,” said John Rye, Vice-President, Consumer Packaging Group, Henkel Adhesive Technologies.
