Adhesives for Packaging

Techsil offer a wide range of tecbond® hotmelt adhesives and tec™ glueguns for many packaging applications both for the sealing of end of line cardboard cartons and boxes to ship out goods and also for constructing attractive and/or protective packaging for your products. The tecbond® range of high-performance hot melt adhesives offers the widest choice of formulations that can bond almost any packaging material instantly. They are very clean to handle and have an almost indefinite shelf life, providing a clean bond with none of the problems or hazards posed by other sealing methods.

End-of-Line Packaging Adhesives for Sealing Boxes and Cartons

Techsil supply an array of hotmelt adhesives, from economical hot melt grades which will save you £’s on your packaging costs up to high strength high performance grades that you can trust with heavy, fragile or delicate shipments. Techsil also offer a series of hotmelt dispensing glue guns which will help tailor your selection perfectly to your own requirement. The best system for your needs can easily be worked out based on your daily/hourly usage and the type of box you are wanting to seal, for example a double flap carton or a one side full flap carton. Hot melts will not have an adverse chemical effect on the substrates or the contents being packed, unlike solvent based adhesives which could damage expensive or delicate contents. Hot melts will give you a very strong tamper-proof seal that adds extra security to your packaging, as well as improving the rigidity of the carton. Plus, by using tecbond® hot melts, you won’t obscure any graphics that could be printed on the outside of the carton, as can often happen when using other closing systems such as tape or staples. For fast closing of cartons, tray assembly, and wrap-around packaging we recommend:

  • tecbond® 14 – Low viscosity, fast setting, FDA Approved  
  • tecbond® 214 – Medium viscosity, fast setting, economical, FDA Approved 
  • tecbond® 1X – Medium viscosity, medium open time, FDA Approved
