Innovation and product differentiation based on next generation technology will drive growth in the adhesives market. The global market for adhesives is growing and H.B. Fuller is poised to provide innovative formulations to meet this growing demand.
Our technical expertise coupled with our focus on perfecting adhesives has enabled us to bring to market several adhesive solutions and technologies for packaging, nonwovens and window applications. Our recent adhesive innovations for packaging include Advantra Encore™ case and carton hot melt, the packaging industry’s first low density Liquamelt® adhesive and equipment system, and additions to our Flextra™ family of flexible packaging adhesives – Flextra Quiet™ noise reducing laminating adhesive and Flextra Fast™ solventless laminating adhesive. For nonwovens applications, our Full-Care™ family of nonwovens adhesives enhances production efficiencies, lowers in-use impact and enhances supply flexibility.
In the window market, the trend for more efficient windows provides a great opportunity for H.B. Fuller to offer advanced adhesives and sealants to this market. As highlighted in our blog post from this year’s GlassBuild show floor, our HL-5165 insulating reactive hot melt meets more stringent energy efficiency requirements for building high quality triple insulating glass. The wider processing window of HL-5165 helps improve manufacturing processes and optimize production of triple pane Insulated Glass units.
Faster production needs, sustainability efforts, limited resources and many other global trends will continue to fuel the need for product innovation. H.B. Fuller will continue to collaborate with our customers to provide not only the right formulations to improve their products and processes, but formulations with reliable supply.
