Increase the compression time to stop pop opens! 

If you're experiencing boxes popping open after leaving the production line in your factory, there are some really simple solutions you can try. One of these is to increase the time that the bond is in compression, either by slowing the line down or if possible, lengthening the compression bars so that the carton or case is not released for a few more seconds.  


This is a great way to keep your boxes sealed, but can be an issue for some factories where the speed of production is vital. We've created a blog which details the top 5 solutions if this is a problem you're experiencing. Click the button below to hopefully find a quick fix!

Meet the team



We are thrilled to announce the addition of John Lloyd to our team as Sales Director. 


John brings with him a wealth of experience and expertise in growing the circular economy and promoting climate initiatives. On top of this, having spent several years honing his skills in strategic business development and customer relations, we're poised for sustainable growth. 


His ability to understand and address client needs has helped him build an impressive network and earned him a stellar reputation within the industry. We are confident that John's dedication and customer-centric approach will not only significantly benefit Alphabond and our valued customers, but also help us improve our planet-friendliness. 




With planet-friendliness at the top of many businesses minds at the moment, our R&D team have been working to develop closed loop recycling solutions in the hot melt sector, incorporating recycled plastics in adhesives - branded BioMelt-R.        


If you're looking for more recyclable solutions for your company or want the adhesive you use to be based on the same as the substrate (for example, if you have a polypropylene non-woven and want to use a polypropylene glue so they can be recycled together), then BioMelt-R is the product range for you.
