Jowat showcased its product portfolio for sustainable food packaging at the Anuga FoodTec. The portfolio has been developed with special attention to bio-based raw materials as well as resource-saving manufacturing processes.
Jowat “green adhesives” product line provides adhesives with high contents of bio-based raw materials and energy-efficient, process-optimized and food-safe bonding solutions.
The bio-based adhesive solutions of the Jowatherm® GROW range provide powerful hot melt adhesives based on pine resins. Jowatherm® GROW 853.20 is particularly resource-friendly due to a certified content of bio-based raw materials of over 30% coupled with a processing temperature starting from 130°C. The very clean cut-off at the nozzle can prevent soiled machine parts and packaging.
Jowatherm® GROW 853.22 contains a higher proportion of bio-based raw materials—over 50%. In addition, this adhesive impresses with a very broad range of adhesion for reliable bonding of even difficult surfaces. It is also an attractive partner in deep-freeze applications due to its high flexibility at low temperatures.
HMA with Low-temperature Application
Sustainable energy savings of up to 45% are facilitated by the hot melt adhesive Jowat-Toptherm® 851.99. The adhesive couples a very low processing temperature starting from 99°C with a wide range of adhesion and robust universal characteristics.
Its low application temperatures make it particularly interesting for temperature-sensitive products such as deep-freeze food or confectionery. In addition, this modern hot melt adhesive with very clean processing characteristics has a MOAH-free formulation (below the typical detection limit) and can therefore also be used for the packaging of non-perishable dry or fatty foods.
