HB Fuller Introduces Two New Water-Based Adhesives That Contain a UV Fluorescing Agent

HB Fuller has launched two new water-based adhesives that contain a UV fluorescing agent, to enable corrugators achieve zero defects in their production lines.

The Ipacoll PWC 3107 I UV and Ipacoll WD 3930 offer cleaner and more effective performances and help manufacturers increase their production efficiency by reducing adhesive-related downtime.

The products also offer versatility with strong adhesion to a wide variety of typical case and carton materials.

While Ipacoll PWC 3107 I UV can be used for typical nozzle or jet applications, the WD 3930 can be used for wheel-in-pot systems.

Both the adhesives have been produced with a UV indicator which is ideally suited to work with Valco Melton's ClearVision camera inspection systems.

HB Fuller business director Stuart Jenkinson said: "Demand to achieve zero-defect production continues to increase, as customers want high-quality products at competitive prices. High-tech equipment to eliminate manual processes is important, but adhesives play a fundamental role in delivering enhanced production, and meeting the changing demands of end users.

"With the launch of these exciting products, manufacturers can simply set their machine to run, and have confidence that it will continue without interruption from adhesive-related issues. Furthermore, the formulation of these adhesives has been closely tied to optimising performance with the camera detection system, which is vital to maximising the effect of this quality control technology."

HB Fuller specializes in manufacturing adhesives, sealants and other specialty chemical products. The company generated new revenues of approximately $2.05bn in 2013.
