Sustainable packaging not only helps the Earth, but can also boost your reputation among your environmentally conscious customers. Manufacturing research shows that sustainable packaging manufacturing is coming back to the United States, and L.D. Davis’ sustainable packaging glues can help ensure that everything about your product is eco-friendly.
Sustainable packaging is designed to reduce waste and conserve important resources. This can be done by reducing the size of the package, selectively choosing materials that can be reused and recycled, including recyclable non-toxic glue.
L.D. Davis manufactures two different kinds of glues for sustainable packaging; Synthetic polymer based and protein glues. Synthetic polymer based glues use water as the carrier fluid, with the glue particles dispersed emulsified in water, reducing the glue’s viscosity so that it can be applied to various substrates at different thicknesses. Protein glues are similar to liquid resins in that they are water based however, in this case, the glue is a gelled solid at ambient temperature and must be heated to liquefy for use.
