Paper Straws

Consumers are increasingly aware of the impact of convenience packaging on the environment and are demanding low-impact alternative options to conventional plastic packaging. A huge area of focus is on straws, and this means replacing plastic drinking straws with paper straws.

Manufacturing paper straws is a completely different process to producing plastic straws. Typically constructed of 3 plies of paper, the plies are bonded together with a small amount of water-based adhesive using a core-winding machine. The choice of the paper and adhesive quality has a fundamental impact on the performance of the paper straw and the efficiency of manufacture.

Meeting the challenge of producing paper straws that provide the performance demanded by consumers is one that H.B Fuller can help you achieve. Our adhesive solutions deliver compliance with food contact regulations and straw integrity during immersion in fluids. The paper provides the desired barrier performance, and the adhesive provides two key areas of performance.

First, the adhesive must provide sufficient bond strength to ensure the straw maintains its form, even at fast production speeds and different paper qualities. And second, the dry bond must remain intact to ensure straw integrity during submersion in beverages, and once the straw is disposed, the adhesive must enable the straw to break down and decompose in a landfill.

Our portfolio of adhesives for manufacturing paper straws is expanding as the market and consumer needs grow and develop. Our scientist-designed Swift®tak adhesives deliver food safe solutions that maintain straw integrity while the consumer is enjoying a beverage.
