ADHESIVES FOR THE PRODUCTION OF PAPER TUBES AND CORES

Paper tubes and cores are produced by folding and gluing a number of plies of paper or cardboard. Winding may be spiral, parallel or conic. The tubes may be made of two up to thirty plies of paper. Compressive strength of the tubes depends on the quality of paper, but also partially on the type of adhesive. Compressive strength is measured after the tube is completely dried. Depending on the purpose of tubes, as well as on the speed of the machine, different types of adhesives may be used. For transport cardboard tubes dextrin adhesive is customarily used, while for high-speed machines and in producing thin-walled paper tubes, polyvinyl acetate adhesives are recommended. Adhesive may be applied by cascade, rolls, immersion and nozzles.

ADHESIVES FOR CARDBOARD BOXES PRODUCTION

Assembling cardboard boxes is performed by gluing machines. Adhesive application can be contact (disc, rolls, segmented), or contactless (nozzle). When it comes to the very process of adhesion, we have bonding of cardboards, printed or not, bonding of lacquered surfaces (dispersion, or UV cross-linking lacquer), as well as bonding of surfaces laminated with PE, or PP film.

GRAPHIC ART AND BOOK BINDING

LAMINATING ADHESIVES

Process of lamination involves bonding of printed cardboard to flat or micro-corrugated cardboard in producing transport or commercial cardboard box. Dextrin adhesives could be used for this purpose, yet polyvinyl acetate adhesives are increasingly used to provide for increased speed of the process.

PRINT FILM LAMINATION ADHESIVES

Film print lamination is the process in which printed paper or cardboard is coated by thin PP, BOPP or cellulose acetate film. For water based adhesives this process can be performed in two different techniques, either “wet” or “dry” lamination. In wet lamination, film is bonded to paper as soon as adhesive is applied, while in dry lamination the coating of adhesive is first dried in tunnel dryer, while film is bonded to paper afterwards.

ADHESIVES FOR THE PRODUCTION OF HYGIENIC PAPER

Hygienic paper includes various kinds of toilet paper, kitchen towels, napkins and handkerchiefs. The process of producing these items involves use of a number of different adhesives varying in their intended use, chemical composition, and other characteristics. These include adhesives for lamination, as well as those for gluing the first layer to the core, the last layer to the rolls and wrapping.

LABELLING ADHESIVES

Labelling is highly complex process in terms of the technology used. Thus the labelling adhesive needs to meet multiple demands related to:

  • Different types of labelling machines,
  • Different types of material to which labels are attached (glass, coated glass, PET, etc.) as well as different types of material used in producing labels
  • Different conditions of gluing (dry, wet, cold and warm),
  • Washing conditions

Additional requirements are related to resistance to condensed water, and iced water.

ADHESIVES FOR LABELLING OF GLASS PACKAGING

Casein based adhesives have been unchallenged in the field, but the fluctuations in the price of casein brought about the need for another solution. Therefore, so-called hybrid or entirely synthetic adhesives based on alkali-soluble synthetic polymers have lately become increasingly present. Hybrid adhesives still contain casein, yet in a smaller percentage.

Tekol KH-100 Casein adhesive Adhesive is used for applying paper labels to glass. It is suitable for slow and medium-speed machines.

ADHESIVES FOR ENVELOPES

There are three types of adhesives used in making envelopes:

  • Front flap remoistening adhesives which enables permanent closing, once an envelope is full
  • Adhesives for side and bottom seaming of an envelope
  • Adhesives for applying PP or polystyrene foil “windows”

We produce several types of remoistening adhesives for envelope’s front flap. These adhesives are easily remoistened once an envelope is full, thus becoming sticky (so-called remoistening gumming adhesives). These remoistening gumming adhesives can be 100% dextrin based, mixed dextrin and synthetic or 100% synthetic based. Permanent closing of envelopes may be performed manually or by a machine.
Adhesives for side and bottom seaming can also be dextrin or synthetic based, they could be applied by roller or by nozzle and for these adhesives initial drying speed and film elasticity are highly important.
Polystyrene and PP films are usually used for envelope windows, while adhesives based on copolymer dispersions are used for their bonding.
