SYMBIEX™

Solventless Adhesives

Accelerating packaging to market

Solventless laminating adhesives are big. Growing at nearly 10%. They offer many positives to packaging converters, including:   

  • High line speed 
  • Low capital investment 
  • Low environmental impact 
  • Reduced operation cost  

Dow has offered solventless adhesives since their earliest development. Our passion for innovation and collaboration led to something even better: Dow and the global equipment manufacturer Nordmeccanica signed a joint development agreement to develop next-generation solventless adhesives and equipment together. In 2016, our ultra-fast curing SYMBIEX™ Solventless Adhesive and Nordmeccanica’s all-new Duplex SL OneShot™ laminator were introduced.

Collaboration for innovation in packaging lamination

SYMBIEX™ and Duplex SL One Shot™ redefine packaging lamination, offering converters best-in-class conversion efficiency improvements, shorter time-to-market and total conversion cost reductions. Watch this video to find out more.

The results have been extraordinary.

SYMBIEX™ Solventless Adhesives from Dow and Duplex SL OneShot™ from Nordmeccanica have significantly improved productivity and cost management of the user. Specifically, the list of advantages has grown even longer with further developments of the solventless adhesive:  

  • Web speed improvements from 25% up to 50%.  
  • Excellent surface quality when used on metallized PET / PET, ALU / PET, and OPA / PE-EVOH substrates. 
  • No pot life concerns: Pot life concerns and the typical compromise between initial viscosity and reactivity of the adhesive are eliminated. The enabled higher reactivity translates into faster bond development in the laminate, lower curing inventory and an almost immediate quality check. 
  • Equipment simplification: No need for a mixer and heating room.  
  • Immediate cash flow improvement through reductions in inventories held. 
  • Increased efficiency: Less line downtime due to reduced cleaning frequency and an additional opportunity for further productivity gains.  
  • Material savings: Reductions in scrap because bond quality checking is possible 30 minutes after lamination.  

The revolutionary duo can run films for a wide range of packaging applications, including:  

  • Juice stand-up pouches 
  • Sachets,portion packs, pouches 
  • Coffee and powder vacuum packs 
  • Snacks 
  • Fresh food packaging 
  • Meat packaging 
  • Poultry and fish packaging 
  • Dairy and cheese packaging 

SYMBIEX™ Solventless Adhesives can also be used independently – on equipment other than the OneShot laminator – and they may achieve similar results, depending on packaging structures.

Let’s get the conversation started.
