HB Fuller launches Flextra ‘next generation’ water-based laminating adhesives

HB Fuller has launched the Flextra family of water-based dry bond hybrid laminating adhesives for flexible packaging in the food and industrial markets.

The Flextra range, PD2243, PD2167 and PD2207, is said to be designed for high clarity, clean machining and excellent cell release, offering packaging converters three options to help maximise performance while balancing cost.

“Customers packaging produce, bakery goods, snacks and confections need adhesives that match their performance needs,” says Brian Glasbrenner, North American sales manager, flexible packaging at HB 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 little as two days.”

Flextra PD2243 offers the highest performance of HB Fuller’s water-based line, with excellent clarity on various films, high bond strength, high chemical resistance and high heat resistance.

“Suitable for stand-up pouches, Flextra PD2243’s clean machining helps minimise production line shut-downs for clean-up,” the company says.

Within the line, Flextra PD2167 provides the “widest window of performance for its cost”, with good bond strength on a variety of films.

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