H.B. Fuller Introduces Advantra 9271, a Hotmelt Adhesive for Bonding of Sustainable Cartons

Published on 2014-10-08. Author : SpecialChem

H.B. Fuller (NYSE: FUL) has introduced a new premium hot melt adhesive, Advantra 9271, specially formulated for strong bonding of light-weight sustainable folding box boards in the European market.

Advantra 9271 is the latest in a range of universal solutions created to address the needs of a market in which constant changes in the composition and surface properties of boards can pose difficulties for previously trusted adhesives.

Developed in partnership with carton and machine manufacturers, the reliability, versatility and clean-running performance of this packaging adhesive has been established by extensive testing. In trials with numerous carton types, reflecting trends toward lightweight, coated and grease-resistant folding box boards, Advantra 9271 proved to be consistently effective and give strong fiber tear. In addition, it continued to perform optimally even when running on fast packaging lines and subjected to extremes of heat and cold.

As well as giving supreme confidence that boxes will stay closed, under a wide range of conditions, Advantra 9271 offers a number of benefits that increase the effectiveness and economy of equipment and processes. One is its ability to achieve excellent adhesion at high line speeds, bonding folding cartons quickly and with minimal need for counter pressure. While throughput is rapid, bead size and placement are precise – resulting in clean application and lower adhesive consumption.

As with all Advantra adhesives its viscosity is consistent, which means that users can ‘set and forget’ the adhesive on their packing lines, knowing that their packaging operations will continue to run smoothly. There is no stringing to clean up, even in high-speed runs, and no char or gel to block the tank or nozzles. This avoids downtime, minimises maintenance requirements and prevents adhesive wastage, reducing costs even further.

“At H.B. Fuller we aim to connect what matters,” says Elizabeth Staab, marketing manager, packaging solutions. “In the case of Advantra 9271, this means that users can run their lines at top speeds with more sustainable carton types.”
