Lamination adhesive is used in a variety of packaging applications. These include food, health care and industry because of their high performance and anti-pollution factors. At present, the food industry share the highest, accounting for more than 60% of market demand. This is because the demand for pre-packaged food increases. However, health care is expected to grow the fastest and is expected to expand by an annual compound growth rate of 6.9 per cent by 2024. These benefits help to drive the growth of the market, especially with government initiatives and growing consumer awareness of the use of eco-friendly adhesives.
Especially in the Asia-Pacific region, the growing demand for adhesives. This is due to an increase in population and an increase in the number of food packaging users. As a result, the number and current value of the region are the largest. However, Europe and North America as well as India, China, Brazil and Russia are expected to continue to maintain a successful market outlook. At present, solvent-based adhesives are widely used in the dominant market. However, with the increasing pressure on environmentally friendly environments, solvent-free adhesives are expected to grow the fastest over the same period last year, exceeding the solvent type.
Solvent-based lamination adhesives are used from ethyl acetate or acetone using a hardening agent. Professional systems can also be used in other commonly used solvents such as MEK, toluene or mixtures. These laminating adhesives are designed for use in many industrial applications. They can also be run at high speed, ideal for general high-performance laminations, making them ideal for food and medical packaging applications.
Solvent-free lamination adhesives are common to high performance dry laminates. These laminating adhesives are designed for use in high speed laminators and have excellent aesthetics. Mainly used in food and medical packaging applications, these solventless laminates are used to bond the various films to the sealant layer, including a sealant layer having a high slip level.
