On 13th and 14th February, the 18th Inno-Meeting took place in Osnabrück. The conference theme this time was “Handeln” = “Take action” in the sense of reorientation.
With this in mind, our colleague, Erwin Jochim (Global KAM Morchem), held his presentation on the topic of “Continuous Challenges for Laminating Adhesives in Use for Flexible Packaging”. The first part of the presentation focused in particular on the security that adhesives have gained in recent years, always putting “Consumer Care and Safety” above everything with the latest launch of our epoxy silane free adhesives.
The second part focused on highlighting MORCHEM’s position towards laminating adhesives in terms of sustainability. Here MORCHEM can be proud to present its very recent development of a recyclable adhesive for standard packaging laminates such as PET/Alu/PE, OPA/PE, PET/PE which can be “delaminated” and films separated after use by using our own technology called MORCYCLING. Thus, plastic films and aluminium foils can be separated, recovered and reused.
As always, the meeting met our expectations in terms of content and procedure and was well attended by experts from the flexible packaging industry.
