Food and beverage packaging must adhere to a very detailed set of safety standards, right down to the glue that brings it all together. LD Davis offers many high-quality, FDA approved glues that are safe for both direct and indirect food contact and can withstand extreme temperatures. Our versatile food and beverage packaging glues are used for case and carton sealing and folding, seal tray forming, package labeling, windowing, filters and many other applications. In fact, LD Davis offers top quality folding carton glues designed for high-speed performance on packaging lines and bottle labeling glues that provide optimal adhesion for a variety of substrates.
Animal and Liquid Glues
Many of our eco-friendly animal and liquid glue formulas are approved for indirect contact with dry and aqueous foods (Code of Federal Regulations Title 21 Part 175 Indirect Food Additives: Adhesives and Components of Coatings, Subpart B Substances for Use Only as Components of Adhesives, Section 175.105 Adhesives). In food and beverage packaging, animal glues are often used for rigid food boxes, such as cereal or candy boxes, and liquid glues are often used for labeling and case and carton sealing and folding.
Pressure Sensitive and Hot Melt Glues
Many of our hot melt glues are FDA compliant for both direct and indirect food contact. Metallocene hot melt glues are specifically designed to provide the best quality bonds for the food and beverage packaging industry.
