"Customers packaging produce, bakery goods, snacks and confections need adhesives that match their performance needs," said Brian Glasbrenner, North American sales manager, flexible packaging at H.B. Fuller. "We developed the Flextra water-based dry bond hybrid laminating adhesives to give customers more choice with the high-end performance they can count on. With these products, you can laminate, pouch, ship and fill packages in as few as two days."

Flextra PD2243 offers the highest performance of H.B. Fuller's water-based line with excellent clarity on various films, high bond strength, high chemical resistance and high heat resistance. The adhesive is suitable for stand-up pouches. Its clean machining helps minimize production line shut-downs for clean-up.

Within the line, Flextra PD2167 provides the widest window of performance for its cost with good bond strength on a variety of films. It has good clarity and gravure cylinder cell release, leading to good adhesive transfer and easy clean-up.

The base product in the family, Flextra PD2207, is suitable for a bakery, snack and confectionary packaging, offering outstanding economics for a water-based adhesive.
