Collano specialty adhesives

At the ICE (stand 716 in hall A5), Collano will be presenting rubber-based and radiation-curable hotmelts, dispersion adhesives and adhesive films for label, tape, packaging, graphics and security applications. Within the radiation-curable hotmelts, printable UV adhesives are available, for flexographic or screen printing. Collano will focus on new developments for bio-based adhesives, hotmelts for resealable food packaging and concepts for security applications. 

Greener bonding

Collano presents a new generation of UV-curable pressure-sensitive adhesives that are derived from renewable and bio-based raw materials and are intended for label applications. Fatty acid derivatives found in vegetable oils make particularly attractive base substances for bio-based adhesives, because they have an inherently low glass-transition temperature. The polyester is 100% bio-based, is UVcurable and lends itself to a wide range of PSA formulations for bonding all kinds of profiles. It thus constitutes a logical alternative to established petrochemical products.

Bonding and more

Adhesive systems from Collano do more than simply bond materials. They also deliver a number of additional functions and security features. These include protection against dirt, mix-ups, tampering, and counterfeiting, as well as identification, information, communication and declaration purposes. One example is coloured adhesives that afford security by highlighting their presence, e.g. in product identification, labelling and adhesive tape applications. Another is adhesives for high-tech labels that transport visible or invisible information, transmit signals and communicate with devices. Yet another is pressure-sensitive adhesives which change colour in response to temperature changes.

Collano’s technological arsenal

The wide range of Collano’s technologies covers moisture-curing hot melt adhesives (Collano® A7 series), moisture-curing PUR hot melts, UV-curing hot melt adhesives (Collano® UV N1 series), thermoplastic adhesive films, heat-reactivated adhesives, dispersion adhesives, reactive systems and rubber-based hot melts.

Technical advice and detailed information will be available at ICE 2015 in Munich, Collano stand 716, in hall A5, or directly from info@collano.com.
