DaniMer Scientific has created a new product line of biodegradable hot melt adhesives for use in the packaging industry. These bio-resin adhesives are manufactured using renewable materials rather than the petroleum-derived materials that are used to make traditional hot melt adhesives.
The new DaniMer adhesives are designed to operate in existing hot melt applicators including handguns and automatic applicators. Bio-adhesives are produced using DaniMer’s proprietary Seluma condensation polymer technology enabling each product to be ASTM 6400 compostable and suitable for hydro-repulping operations. The current product line includes case and carton seal adhesives, replacement for pressure sensitive adhesives, as well as adhesives required for flexible packaging.
“We are constantly working to improve our technology and develop new resins to help our clients achieve their goals, while supporting global efforts to use sustainable resources,” says president Blake Lindsey. “Our biodegradable plastics offer improved product performance and can be used in a variety of applications from packaging to labels, bottles, and lids.” For more information, visit www.danimer.com.
