SYMBIEX™

Solventless Adhesives

Packaging lamination flexibility like never before

Solventless laminating adhesives are big. Growing at nearly 10%. They offer many positives to packaging converters, including reduced operational costs and low environmental impacts.

Now, the growing family of SYMBIEX™ solventless adhesives offers an even wider range of converting advantages and packaging applications for greater production flexibility and end-market opportunities:

Coffee pouch bag

For dry and fresh food packaging applications requiring excellent seals enabling better barrier protection, SYMBIEX adhesives offer what’s wanted. They present a great option for these packaging challenges, as well as others: 

  • Coffee and powder vacuum packs
  • Confectionery
  • Fresh fruits and vegetables
  • Savory snacks
  • Thermoformed blister packs
chicken tendies

SYMBIEX Solventless Adhesives withstand wide temperature ranges, including the long-term exposure to the cold required for refrigerated and frozen food packaging. SYMBIEX adhesives can be used for:

  • Dairy and cheese packaging
  • Meat, poultry, and fish packaging
  • Fresh fruits and vegetables
Soup in bagged packaging next to a bowl of soup

Nothing demands exceptional sealing performance like liquid packaging. SYMBIEX adhesives are ready. From small packets to commercial bags, SYMBIEX adhesives are a solid choice for liquid applications such as:

  • Liquid detergent SUPs
  • Stand-up pouches for juices
  • Cosmetic sachets
  • Commercial food service (soups, sauces, etc.)

More products. More opportunities.

SYMBIEX™ Solventless Adhesives technology is enabling all-new opportunities for solventless adhesives performance, speed, flexibility, and ease-of-use.

From the landmark collaboration with Nordmeccanica that created the original breakthrough 100 percent solid, polyurethane adhesive system used in conjunction with the Duplex SL One-Shot laminator, on-going development has brought more options to the value chain.

Accelerating speed-to-market

SYMBIEX™ Solventless Adhesives from Dow and the Duplex SL OneShot™ from Nordmeccanica have significantly improved productivity and cost management of the user process – offering virtually stress-free laminating, with less labor, less scrap, and no pot life concerns. And the list of advantages has grown even longer with further developments of the solventless adhesive:

  • Equipment simplification: No need for a mixer and heating room
  • Web speed improvements: from 25% - 50%
  • Unparalleled curing and slitting times: finished packages in just 24 hours
  • Excellent surface quality: on metallized PET / PET, ALU / PET, and OPA / PE-EVOH substrates
  • Increased efficiency: Less line downtime due to reduced cleaning frequency
  • Enhanced opportunities: new formulations offer wider package structure applications

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.

For more information on the entire family of SYMBIEX™ solventless adhesives, contact one of our adhesives experts. We look forward to introducing you to these exciting products.
