Technomelt EM 325 is a new hot melt adhesive innovation which is approved for fully recyclable containers. Developed by Henkel, global leaders in the adhesive market, Technomelt EM 325 has been fully approved by PETCYCLE, a German company formed by a collective of businesses to address recycling of PET bottles. Petcycle’s closed loop system operates in Germany and supports the use of rPET for packaging.
Technomelt EM 325 is fully compatible with traditional rubber based bottle labelling adhesives and offers clean running at up to 40000 bottles per hour. Technomelt EM 325 has a number of advantages, such as a low running temperature (130 to 140°C) and it is suitable for both paper and plastic labels. Technomelt EM 325 can be used on a variety of applications, such a roll fed, cut & stack and by application by roller or spin spray systems.
Technomelt EM 325 disperses in hot caustic soda solution, resulting in 98% adhesive removal, compared to 12 to 30% for traditional hot melt labelling adhesives. The product is dispersed, not dissolved in this caustic solution, so it can be screened out, which means that it does not create sticky residue in the recycling process.
On the machine, Technomelt 325’s very high molten tack gives a more secure bond and great fibre tear on paper labels.
Henkel’s user friendly x-tra packaging makes the product very easy to handle, protects it from contamination and means that there is no packaging material waste.
The closed loop process means that PET bottles use around 55% recycled material, reducing their environmental impact substantially.
