Hygienic paper includes various kinds of toilet paper, kitchen towels, napkins and handkerchiefs. The process of producing these items involves use of a number of different adhesives varying in their intended use, chemical composition, and other characteristics. These include adhesives for lamination, as well as those for gluing the first layer to the core, the last layer to the rolls and wrapping.

Paper tubes and cores are produced by folding and gluing a number of plies of paper or cardboard. Winding may be spiral, parallel or conic. The tubes may be made of two up to thirty plies of paper. Compressive strength of the tubes depends on the quality of paper, but also partially on the type of adhesive. Compressive strength is measured after the tube is completely dried. Depending on the purpose of tubes, as well as on the speed of the machine, different types of adhesives may be used. For transport cardboard tubes dextrin adhesive is customarily used, while for high-speed machines and in producing thin-walled paper tubes, polyvinyl acetate adhesives are recommended. Adhesive may be applied by cascade, rolls, immersion and nozzles.

PRINT FILM LAMINATION ADHESIVES Film print lamination is the process in which printed paper or cardboard is coated by thin PP, BOPP or cellulose acetate film. For water-based adhesives this process can be performed in two different techniques, either “wet” or “dry” lamination. In wet lamination, film is bonded to paper as soon as adhesive is applied, while in dry lamination the coating of adhesive is first dried in tunnel dryer, while film is bonded to paper afterwards. LAMINATING ADHESIVES Process of lamination involves bonding of printed cardboard to flat or micro corrugated cardboard in producing transport or commercial cardboard box. Dextrin adhesives could be used for this purpose, yet polyvinyl acetate adhesives are increasingly used to provide for increased speed of the process. BOOK BINDING ADHESIVES Production of books, brochures, files, and the like, requires variety of materials, which also influences the choice of adhesive.

Assembling cardboard boxes is performed by gluing machines. Adhesive application can be contact (disc, rolls, segmented, nozzle), or contactless (nozzle). When it comes to the very process of adhesion, we have bonding of cardboards, printed or not, bonding of lacquered surfaces (dispersion, or UV cross-linking lacquer), as well as bonding of surfaces laminated with PE, or PP film.

In the last few years solvent-based foam adhesives have been abandoned in the production of mattresses and pillows. New aqueous dispersions based on polychloroprene have been developed and successfully changed the previous gluing system. Adhesives for polyurethane foams produced by Tetragon are exclusively water based. Depending on the application method and the materials to be joined, there are different types of adhesives. All of them have good initial tack, and make solid and flexible joints.

ADHESIVES FOR LABELING OF GLASS PACKAGING Casein based adhesives have been unchallenged in the field, but the fluctuations in the price of casein brought about the need for another solution. Therefore, so-called hybrid or entirely synthetic adhesives based on alkali-soluble synthetic polymers have lately become increasingly present. Hybrid adhesives still contain casein, yet in a smaller percentage. ADHESIVES FOR LABELING OF PLASTIC PACKAGING Labeling the materials with low surface energy is particularly challenging. Our adhesives are based on synthetic resins dispersion with tackifiers. They are excellent for labeling and are characterized by flexible film and good performance with different types of labeling machines.

Paper bags are proved to be irreplaceable in many areas of packaging practice. Different dimensions of shapes and colors can appear. They can be made using rollers or in a more modern version using nozzles.

We produce several types of remoistening adhesives for envelope’s front flap. These adhesives are easily remoistened once an envelope is full, thus becoming sticky (so-called remoistening gumming adhesives). These remoistening gumming adhesives can be 100% dextrin based, mixed dextrin and synthetic or 100% synthetic based. Permanent closing of envelopes may be performed manually or by a machine. Adhesives for side and bottom seaming can also be dextrin or synthetic based, they could be applied by roller or by nozzle and for these adhesives initial drying speed and film elasticity are highly important. Polystyrene and PP films are usually used for envelope windows, while adhesives based on copolymer dispersions are used for their bonding.

Recently, paper straws are increasingly replacing plastic drinking straws. Manufacturing paper straws is process like we can see in production of paper core. Using a core - winding machine, the principle is the same but with a slightly different substrate. The choice of the paper and adhesive quality has a fundamental impact on the performance of the paper straw and the efficiency of manufacture. Our new adhesive solution for paper straws provides constancy during immersion in drink. The paper provides the desired barrier performance and sufficient strength of straws. The adhesive provides satisfying and firm bond strength.
