Sonoco Develops Rain-resistant Adhesive & Sealant Cartridge

Published on 2017-09-28. Author : SpecialChem

Sonoco has leveraged its world-class RainGuard® technology, previously applied to its Sonotube® forms, to develop a new fiber cartridge for adhesives, caulks and sealants designed to withstand inclement weather on construction sites. The cartridge can be used for traditional adhesives and sealants packaged in fiber cartridge. It is now available for the entire adhesives and sealants market.


Inclement Weather on Construction Sites

William Long, division sales manager, Adhesives and Sealants, Sonoco, said:

"This cartridge was developed in response to customer feedback – we learned that people needed an all-weather solution for construction sites, especially for large, ongoing projects. This new cartridge is still gunnable after exposure to wet conditions, meaning that construction workers don't need to pack up every time it rains."

In market research conducted by Sonoco, contractors most frequently mentioned rain or inclement weather as the top issue that inhibits their ability to complete a job within the committed timeframe. With Sonoco's new cartridges, adhesive and sealant manufacturers can minimize this concern.

This new cartridge is already commercialized, and is part of a suite of packaging solutions for the adhesive and sealant markets.
