H.B. Fuller Laminating Adhesive Allows For Faster Fill Of Food Packages





ST. PAUL, Minn., June 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- H.B. Fuller Company (NYSE: FUL) announces Flextra Fast™ SF8700/XR1000, the latest addition to its family of Flextra Fast laminating adhesives for flexible packaging converting. This new entry offers ultra-fast cure time and ultra-fast time to fill safely with food, even for difficult applications, such as barrier-to-barrier laminating. With H.B. Fuller's new Flextra Fast™ SF8700/XR1000 system, flexible packaging converters can laminate barrier films together faster than with conventional solventless adhesive systems and without sacrificing appearance.

"Speed, safety and performance have become our mantra for the flexible packaging industry," said Joe Tuso, H.B. Fuller North America sales director, converting. "With the unmatched speed of our new Flextra Fast system, we are bringing new opportunities to converters for faster delivery times and, even more importantly, a critical benefit for their customers to more quickly fill flexible packages safely."

Outperforming conventional systems in speed of cure, this new Flextra Fast product accommodates line speeds up to 1200 feet per minute (fpm) with 800 fpm on barrier-to-barrier laminations, slits in as few as six hours and offers PAA decay and pouching in as little as one day. With film and pouch at full performance in one day, packaging is safe for filling with foodstuffs 24 hours after laminating. The Flextra Fast SF8700/XR1000 system is suitable for PET/PE(EVOH), OPA/PE(EVOH), OPA/Alu high barrier systems.

Along with the complete line of Flextra™ formulations, Flextra Fast adhesives can be put to the test on H.B.
