Using a versatile water based adhesive for your food packaging is essential for many products, and choosing the right one is important. There is no need to make compromises on performance, and at Formulated Polymer Products we can offer you a great solution for your food packaging needs. The most important thing to us is delivering an adhesive that will fulfil all your various bonding requirements and give you piece of mind. Our new line of water based adhesives will provide a wide range of bonding options, with the ability if required to add a cross linker to improve heat resistance to delamination. 

Wet Bond  2068

One of the most popular water based adhesives from our new line is Wet Bond 2068. In addition to being a great all-purpose adhesive, it has some specific advantages for the food packing industry. Importantly, it is free from both casein and starch, so there is no worry that it may contaminate the food products it contains with such allergens. Wet Bond 2068 also conforms to a number of important food regulations in the UK, EU and USA, so if you are looking for a commercial adhesive for export, our Wet Bond 2068 is a great choice. 

It Can Take The Heat

If you need an adhesive that can stand up to the microwave, we can offer you press side cross linker 2067. This 1% additive at press side will ensure that Wet Bond 2068 has excellent heat resistance to enable the final laminate to endure rapid heating in an oven or microwave. Cross Linker 2067 is water based, safe to handle and requires little agitation when adding press side. The added strength is accomplished by a reaction with carboxylate and hydroxyl groups within the adhesive polymer, so that it will maintain its lamination strength under severe conditions. 

A Versatile Solution

When we redesigned our line of adhesives, we wanted to offer products that have a wide range of potential applications. Wet Bond 2068 can be used for many commercial laminating applications, with a green strength that makes it perfect for applications where embossing of the aluminium foil/paper laminate must take place immediately after lamination. It is easy to clean up your machinery after use, as warm water will remove it easily. Its ability to maintain a wet edge under warm conditions during the lamination process is an important factor to note, and adds a lot of utility to an already impressive commercial adhesive.
