Avery Dennison has received FDA food contact notification 1716 for its R1490 adhesive, a high-performance product designed for use in reclosure label applications.

The approval means food packaging can feature the adhesive without a functional barrier between the label and food and is a first of its kind for the reclose label space, according to Avery Dennison.

The company’s R1490 adhesive can be used in a wide range of food packaging applications, including deli meats, cheeses and fresh produce.

“As this segment continues to grow, the R1490 FCN approval is an example of how Avery Dennison is driving to further enhance the consumer experience with brands through new reseal label applications and drive growth for our customers,” says Anh Marella, marketing director for films at Avery Dennison.

As brand owners have work to differentiate and add value to their products, many have embraced resealable labels or reclosures, which are designed for easy opening and/or multiple open-close uses.
