Styrene Block Copolymers (SBC) are available for a large variety of hot-melt and solvent-based formulations. Their versatility allows tackifiers, plasticizers, antioxidants, and other additives to be blended when specific balance of performance is sought.

Meet the challenging needs of Packaging

packaging adhesives industry The packaging adhesives industry has very challenging market characteristics.

Indeed, the types of substrates used in packaging are becoming more and more complex (i.e., recycled paper and board, coated papers, plastic films), which significantly impacts the requirement of adhesion performance.

Moreover, environmental aspects such as packaging material recycling are becoming very important. The adhesive has to be easily separated from the packaging material.

SBC-based adhesives perfectly cope with these trend; Why?
  • They can be used in high-speed application lines, for which hot melts offer competitive performance characteristics over liquid adhesives;
  • Their wide range makes the choice of the ideal formulation easier for the specific application

Indeed, Styrene Block Copolymers deliver excellent properties to packaging adhesives formulation, such as:
  • Fast Setting adhesive to improve line productivity;
  • Optimal adhesion cohesive balance;
  • Wide range of structures to obtain maximal adhesion at process temperature;
  • Higher shear performance;
  • Lower Softening point Temperature;
  • Capability for low temperature application
