Stocks in this article: FUL

ST. PAUL, Minn., May 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- H.B. Fuller Company (NYSE: FUL), a leading supplier of adhesives to the hygiene market has introduced two families of nonwoven adhesives to meet the growing demand for lower odor construction adhesives as well as enhanced supply.

The company's offering of hot melt adhesives now includes Full-Care™ 5650 and Full-Care™ 5300 for construction applications. Both products build upon H.B. Fuller's 10 year history of delivery in polyolefin technology, now offering even more supply assurance due to a platform approach from more available sources.

"H.B. Fuller has a legacy of bringing innovative solutions to the hygiene market," said Heather Walch, North American business director for nonwovens hygiene at H.B. Fuller. "We added two new offerings to our Full-Care line of construction products because we saw gaps in the marketplace where improved odor, higher performance and further cost in use were needed." 

Full-Care™ 5650 offers customers low odor combined with robust cost in use and provides added flexibility across a wide variety of substrates.  Full-Care™ 5300 has been developed for the lowest odor combined with significant improvements in bonding performance to enable potential lower add-ons.

In addition, H.B Fuller has introduced Full-Care™ 8500 for elastic attachment and stretch laminates.  Full-Care 8500 is a hot melt adhesive offering increased choice to customers with demanding elastic attachment and stretch laminate applications. Balancing robust performance with outstanding economics, the adhesive provides great bonding in high stress applications and a lower total cost of ownership.
