We invited our partners at Alphabond onto site to assist us with a problematic label adhesion issue. The Alphabond team suggested we try Label-lock 70810F. This glue has vastly improved performance on the new label substrate.

You have always been quick to respond and have made a point of focussing on improving our line efficiency by making regular visits/audits, enabling us to make considerable cost savings on both our casein based glues and hot melt.

Save Energy With Newer Generation Adhesives!

If you're running a hot melt that is yellow, smelly and running at 160°C+, then you're running old technology. Our generation 6 and 7 hot melts such as Ultimate Cool 98 run at just 98°C (it's in the name!) as you can see in the Nordson tank on the right. See below for some of the benefits that upgrading adhesives can bring: 


• Up to 70% Energy Savings

• Over 50% Reduction in CO2

• Eliminate Blocked Nozzles and charring in the tank  


While it is not possible to upgrade in every application, it is certainly worth contacting us to see if it's possible for you. Click below to enquire now:

FastLock 82+ is a new grade we've created for sealing insulation rolls and hot melt labelling onto PET, PVC and PE substrates among others.


It's high versatility is something our customers using it love, with a low viscosity it can be used in jetting applications allowing for clean running on faster machines and a much lower application temperature than standard grades. The high peel strengths also allow for economical usage.

In case you haven't heard, or R&D team have been hard at work recently working on turning waste plastics into helt melts, turbo-charging the circular economy. The resulting range of adhesives is branded BioMelt-R, see below for some of the key benefits:


 • Incorporate recycled plastics into the base formulation

 • Based around the polymer that they are applied onto, allowing the consumer to recycle as one polymer type

• Grades for many markets such as show manufacture, construction materials, bottle labelling,  pallet stabilisation, hygeine products, textile laminating and many more.

• Enables significant reduction of single-use plastics which enables exemptions in plastics tax.
