Henkel & HP Indigo Partner for Flexible Laminates

Published on 2017-05-09. Author : SpecialChem

For the lamination of flexible packaging the adhesive and printing ink need to be compatible to deliver excellent results.

Düsseldorf / Germany -- Individualization and personalization of packaging is a progressive trend with a strong impact also on flexible laminate solutions. This development brings with it an increased industry interest in digital printing technologies: They are ideal for individually designed packages and smaller job sizes. Expanding the portfolio for its customers with specific fast-curing adhesives and leveraging on its best-in-class expertise, Henkel is delighted to bring its alliance with HP Indigo to the next level.

Offering for Digital Printing

Henkel now extends its offering for digital printing with Loctite Liofol LA 2760 / 5028. This two-component solvent-based polyurethane adhesive system is optimized for retort pouches and withstands sterilization, boiling as well as pasteurization. And it is the perfect fit for HP Indigo’s Pack Ready coating solution: With the chemical crosslinking of the ink and primer, the processing properties and packaging characteristics are greatly improved. This combination makes high performance in digital printing possible for additional food package types, particularly for retort pouches from PET, AI, OPA and CPP laminates. Further, Loctite Liofol LA 2760 / 5028 shows a very fast decay of primary aromatic amines (PAA), further improving the packaging’s food safety properties.
