We were proud to have the Liquamelt Packaging Adhesive System called out by Packaging Digest as one of several Innovations with Impact in a Jan. 2, 2012 article. The article highlights packaging, materials and equipment that caught the eye of the publication's editors because the group felt they had the potential to "score big in the market." They called the Liquamelt System one of the coolest innovations of the year. How cool is that?
At H.B. Fuller, we are focused on perfecting adhesives that make industries, products and lives better. The Liquamelt System, a unique combination of patented equipment and adhesive working together, offers a number of benefits to the packaging industry.
The Liquamelt System makes adhesive on demand right before it is dispensed. Because it eliminates excessive heat, it addresses many of the other negatives associated with hot melt, such as charring, messy clean-up and the dangers of burns to users. Liquamelt provides excellent bonding performance on a variety of fiber substrates, and material savings with the system are often more than 50 percent.
In addition to safety and mileage improvement, the Liquamelt System offers a number of other benefits, including energy savings, sustainability, wide range temperature resistance (-40°F - 140°F), lower maintenance costs and start-up in less than 20 minutes.
It is exciting to receive industry validation of something we think is pretty amazing ourselves. If you are interested in learning how the Liquamelt System can benefit your business, contact us for more information.
