Products for our customers
Form and function. Style and substance. Adhesives and coatings. Undeniable pairings that make things better. Whether a simple or complex film structure, flexible packaging needs adhesives to maintain package integrity and coatings to enhance performance and shelf appeal. Adhesives and coatings are also used in rigid packaging for label adhesion and eye-catching optics.
The Dow portfolio of adhesives and coatings offers many options and diverse performance attributes covering functionalities for many packaging applications:
- Retort processing
- Freezer-to-microwave convenience
- Barrier protection
- Heat seal coatings for lidding
- Pressure sensitive and in-mold labels
- Optical finishes for distinctive shelf appeal
- Scuff and abrasion resistance
No matter the conversion process, or the adhesive chemistries preferred – solvent-borne, solventless, water-based – there are products to choose from. And if you’re not sure, let’s get together and test some out at Pack Studios. We can run trials on our lines without disrupting your schedules.
