Dow Packaging Adhesive Solutions

Coldseal Adhesives

Coldseal adhesives are designed for use in packaging heat-sensitive food items such as candy, ice cream, and chocolates. They also find use in some consumer's medical and industrial applications such as detergents, protective packaging, and labels. The products are applied to base films or laminates having release lacquers or release films. They are designed to be sealed to themselves to form packages using only pressure.

Heat Seal Coatings

Heat Seal Coatings & Adhesives are thermoplastic coatings that are used to seal one substrate to another. They are applied to a variety of materials including films, foils, paper, and non-wovens and allowed to dry.  The final sealing can then be formed between the applied to and sealed to substrates when the adhesive is "reactivated" using heat and pressure. Dow manufactures a full line of waterborne and solvent borne heat seal coatings for use in multiple flexible packaging applications including lidding for condiments and dairy, as well as retortable and ovenable containers. Other uses include in-mold labeling and medical packaging, as well as some industrial uses. Dow offers multiple grades of heat seal adhesive to suit most common application methods including gravure, flexographic, reverse roll, slot die, air knife, and wire wound rods.  Dow's full offering of heat seal coatings is listed below.

Primers are used to promote or improve adhesion of a topcoat to a variety of base films including foil, metalized films, paper, and board stock. Often they are applied and immediately top-coated. In some cases, however, they may be applied and wound, but top-coated at a later date. Both water- and solvent-based chemistries are available.

Solvent Based Adhesives

Solvent-based adhesives contain solvent as a carrier, which is subsequently dried after application (dry bond laminating), leaving the active resin system on the substrate to be bonded to a secondary substrate to make the lamination. These laminations can contain multiple adhesive layers and are used in a variety of food packaging applications ranging from snack food  to high-demand, retortable packages covering multiple FDA regulations. They are also used in industrial laminating applications such as window film, fabric laminations, and insulation-facing laminates. Dow's solvent-based portfolio is one of the broadest available in the industry.

Solventless Adhesives

Solventless adhesives are 100% active products containing no water or solvent carrier. They are applied to base substrates using smooth roll transfer, solventless laminators and subsequently nipped/bonded to the secondary film to make the lamination. These laminations may contain multiple layers and are used in a broad array of food packaging applications including for snack foods, high performance retort, and microwavable packaging. These products meet a broad range of FDA regulations for packaging adhesives and are suitable for most films, foils, and paper.

Water Based Adhesives

Water-based adhesives contain water as their carrier which is subsequently dried after application (dry bond laminating), leaving the active resin system on the substrate to be bonded to a secondary substrate to make the lamination. These products can be used on a variety of film substrates as well as foil and paper. End use applications in food packaging include snack food and bottle labels, as well as microwaveable and boil-in-bag packages. Other applications include medical packaging and flexible industrial laminations. These products are typically machine-ready with no dilution needed and offer fast slit-to-ship turnaround.
