L.D. Davis and Rigid Box Manufacturing
L.D. Davis adhesive has long been the standard glue for the rigid box making industry. Rigid boxes, such as cigar boxes or other solid form cartons are made by laminating a variety of different substrates to a solid chipboard material. The substrates can be paper, leather, foil, fabric, and others. The adhesive used needs to be able to adhere a wide variety of materials to the board, which is why the rigid box industry turns to L.D. Davis hide glue, also known as animal glue, to get the job done the right way.
The Emmeci machine is the equipment standard in the rigid box industry, although there are other types of equipment used in some cases. The Emmeci lamination machine works excellently with L.D. Davis hide glue to laminate substrates to chip board to begin rigid box construction with hide glue.
Eco-Friendly Rigid Box Adhesive
Not only does our hide glue successfully laminate almost any kind of wrap material to the chipboard to make boxes, hide glue is also totally recyclable, eco-friendly, and biodegradable. It forms an excellent bond and also makes the box recyclable once it no longer needs to be used.
Our rigid box customers also have our full-service adhesive lab at their disposal, with scientists that formulate custom hide glue products every single day. If there is any kind of adhesion issue, our adhesive lab can provide an adhesive solution through a custom hide glue formulation.
