Henkel to present labelling solutions at Drinktec
Henkel’s guiding topic for this year’s Drinktec is “Smart labelling, smart savings – Henkel adhesives will turn your numbers around.”
The company will present its portfolio of Aquence and Technomelt adhesives, in addition to its range of smart packaging solutions for glass, plastic and metal.
Henkel’s water-based Aquence XP adhesive solutions series’ casein-free formulation offers independence from the dairy industry and its price fluctuations, the brand says. The in-house polymer has been tailor-made for the Aquence XP product line.
Henkel maintains that Technomelt EM 132-22 for PET labelling helps companies improve their sustainability as it is composed of 60% renewable materials, has a higher efficiency with a 10% higher mileage and, due to the lower application temperature, uses 15% less energy in the process.
Goran Plazonic, market segment manager, labelling adhesives Europe, said: “Our customers have also reported improved cost in use compared to standard casein grades with significant savings in consumption. A further boost to resource efficiency is given through formulation stability and prolonged shelf life.”
