H.B. Fuller has a global track record of recognizing trends and developing adhesive solutions to address industry challenges and changing market needs. Over 125 years of close collaboration with manufacturers has culminated in H.B. Fuller’s comprehensive water-based pressure sensitive adhesives that provide robust solutions for customers.

Robust in terms of adhesive performance. Robust in terms of supply flexibility. Robust in terms of technical support, delivered through generating a close technical collaboration.

Fulltak SE 8301 connects ideal coating, drying and conversion performance for the label stock producer with optimum labelling performance and clean label removal for the beverage producer. Intricately designed PSA labels can be efficiently applied to glass bottles. Under typical conditions, Fulltak SE 8301 delivers two hours ice-water resistance, thus maintaining brand integrity during use. Additionally, returned bottles are easily processed through the wash-off cycle - labels coated with this new adhesive are cleanly removed during a typical warm, caustic wash-off process, and importantly, it remains coated on the label, minimizing contamination of the wash water.

Stuart Jenkinson, business director, comments, “We continue to match product and process innovations to our customers’ critical needs. Fulltak SE 8301 enables label producers to efficiently manufacture high performance PSA paper labels that deliver the value-added benefit of clean label wash-off from returnable bottles.”
