Rohm and Haas High Performance Solventless Adhesives to Be Demonstrated by Nordmeccanica, April 10, 2008

Published on 2008-02-22. Author : SpecialChem

PHILADELPHIA -- Rohm and Haas (NYSE:ROH) announced that two of their new Mor-free™ solventless adhesives will be featured during demonstration trials scheduled in April 2008 by Nordmeccanica NA. Nordmeccanica is the world's largest manufacturer of coating and laminating equipment. Demonstrations of their solventless laminating equipment will take place at the company's Edgewood, Long Island, New York facilities April 10. Specialty materials producer Rohm and Haas was the first company to perfect solventless adhesives for laminating and high performance retort packaging applications. The company's newest advancements in solventless adhesives include a unique performing retort packaging adhesive (Mor-free 225) and a new fast-cure adhesive for hot fill food packaging (Mor-free L75-164). The fast-cure product reduces cure time by more than 50 percent and allows for slitting after just four hours to provide same-shift processing and dramatically improved productivity.

Laminators and packagers find that installing solventless equipment enables them to add line capacity quickly and economically, without concern about VOC issues and air handling equipment, and typically far faster than required for solvent adhesive line additions. Nordmeccanica, based in Piacenza, Italy, installs over 140 new machines annually under brand names: Simplex; Super Simplex; Super Combi 3000; Duplex; Triplex; Quadruplex; Multi Layer; Fusion; and World Mixer. Their reputation for dependability, quality and high productivity is recognized throughout the world. All Nordmeccanica products are made in Italy and equipped with Western European and North American components only.

Customers of both Rohm and Haas and Nordmeccanica NA will be receiving personal invitations to attend the April demonstration trials.
