NEW: Barrier function for folding boxes
Currently, Jowat is already supplying adhesives that were specially developed to bond recycled cardboard with a barrier function against mineral oil migration. Developing the appropriate adhesive for the coated surface of these boards, requires from the adhesive chemists not only a high level of competence, but also the ability to “think differently”. These boards can have a very heterogeneous surface structure due to the high content of waste paper and the barrier coating applied. Nevertheless, these boards have the potential to become established as the standard product because waste paper is a very accessible raw material that also provides economic advantages over the use of virgin fibre paper.
