Adhesives offer significant benefits over other mechanical connecting systems in the industrial production of folding boxes or other corrugated cardboard packaging. They are applied automatically with gluing robots or pass-through machines, enabling short cycle times and low error rates. The choice of adhesive plays a key role. Hotmelts must be able to be applied with absolute precision and without stringing, dispersions must be drip-free, and both systems have to have a high initial strength in order to ensure high output performance.
Dispersion adhesives or EVA hotmelts with an extremely high initial strength are the products of choice for such purposes.
