Laminating Adhesives Market Growth Drivers
The new technologies in laminating adhesives assist in increased safety and sustainability for flexible packaging. Increased environmental and safety concerns have prompted the manufacturer to opt for laminating adhesives over traditional solvent-based products in flexible food packaging.
Implementation of film laminated structure is one of the significant advances in flexible packaging. It allows the different properties of various structures to provide unique packaging protection. Lamination can be performed using adhesives, heat sealable coatings, or extrusion lamination. With water as their main component, unlike solvent-based adhesives, these adhesives only discharge moisture into the atmosphere during drying, thereby reducing VOC emission. Another major advantage of choosing water-based adhesives is that they can be used on a range of substrates including natural and synthetic textiles, plastics, metallic films and many more. They maintain a stable bond over time equal to or greater than the solvent alternatives. .
Laminating Adhesives Market Challenges
The health issues posed by formation of Primary Aromatic Amines (PAA) are some of the challenges faced by the laminating adhesives market. PAAs are formed if the adhesives are not fully cured before the laminate is filled with food – residual isocyanate monomers in the adhesive react with the moisture that is found in foods and form PAAs.
PAAs stand out among the non-intentionally added substances (NIAS) found in flexible packaging since PAAs have been identified as carcinogenic. Because of this specific hazard special attention must be paid to ensure that they do not migrate into food.
