Uflex’s Chemicals Business has launched a general-to-medium performance 2K solventless PU adhesive, FLEXBON 901A/901W. The adhesive is designed to enable laminators and brand owners to reduce their application cost and substantially enhance performance by partially replacing white inks.

This solventless white adhesive works well on existing solventless lamination machines and will reduce the requirement of white ink coating on printed substrates, thereby providing a substantial savings to converters. The product offers excellent opacity and wettability on metallized substrates. Other key features include good adhesion, suitability for low temperature applications (35 to 45 degrees C) and the ability to provide fast decay of primary aromatic amine.

“This innovative and valued development substantially enhances our solventless adhesive portfolio,” notes Rajesh Bhasin, joint president, Uflex Chemicals. “Given the myriad of benefits that this adhesive brings for the converters, we will market it globally. The demand is encouraging already.
