H.B. Fuller confirms it is helping converters achieve zero-defects production with its expanded range of UV light fluorescing adhesives. Designed to perform with some of the most challenging packaging substrates, these innovative adhesive solutions offer the additional reassurance of fulfilling food safety requirements.
Recent expansion of H.B. Fuller’s range of water-based adhesives is set to significantly strengthen its role in helping deliver production line efficiencies for customers. The company has confirmed that its innovative range of UV light fluorescing adhesives, under both blue and yellow-green UV wavelengths, will bring new confidence to the process of zero-defect detection, especially for manufacturers of corrugated boxes and folding cartons.
“In a world where it’s increasingly important to deliver high-quality products every time, adhesive solutions are making a real difference,” said Jude Liddle, H.B. Fuller’s marketing manager for EIMEA Converting Solutions.
“Our commitment to innovation means we’re always looking for new ways to help our customers optimise production efficiency and minimise adhesive-related downtime. So, naturally, when the machine manufacturers and our customers told us that the high level of optical brighteners in recycled material meant it is difficult to detect adhesive using the blue UV wavelength, we were keen to find a solution,” she continued.
H.B. Fuller’s latest ranges of food contact compliant water-based adhesives, containing a yellow-green UV light fluorescing agent, are available to converters under the Swift tak brand name.
