Jowat Packaging Adhesives At FRUIT LOGISTICA

Jowat is set to make its debut at FRUIT LOGISTICA in Berlin, showcasing a comprehensive selection of established packaging adhesives. At the adhesive expert’s first appearance, the spotlight will be not only on Jowat’s longstanding, successful standard products but also on particularly sustainable alternatives.

FRUIT LOGISTICA is considered the world’s leading trade show for the fresh produce industry. The exhibition also shines a spotlight on application technology, logistics and the crucial role of powerful and reliable adhesives in ensuring the secure packaging of and transport of fresh produce.

With over 100 years of experience in the adhesive industry, Jowat is today a renowned supplier for the bonding of trays, cases or folding boxes across diverse application scenarios. The product portfolio includes long tried and trusted hot melt adhesives of the Jowat-Toptherm brand. Jowat-Toptherm 851.10 is the product of choice for bonding demanding surfaces (e.g. coated). Apart from being very clean in processing due to the accurate cut-off of the adhesive string at the nozzle, it also impresses with a high resistance to cold. For years, the adhesive has therefore been used also for products that require a cooled supply chain to remain fresh until they reach their destination More demanding conditions such as strong restoring forces, short pressing times and high temperatures are mastered with Jowat-Toptherm 851.15. In the industry, the adhesive is preferably used for the packaging of products which have to cover long distances from the producer.

Jowat-Toptherm 851.20 takes center stage in the highest ambient temperatures, for example when cases have to be stored or closed in full sun. This powerful PO hot melt adhesive impresses with the highest heat resistance in the Jowat portfolio. Coupled with very high initial strength, it can also master bonding operations with high tensile forces and very short pressing times, for example the packaging of heavy produce such as mangoes or water melons.

For customers aspiring to permanently increase the sustainability of their processes, the continuously growing product family Jowat Green Adhesives of Jowat supplies a range of alternative hot melt adhesives. The packaging adhesives of the Jowatherm GROW product range, for example, contain certified proportions of renewable raw materials based on pine resin. In addition to containing 33% biobased raw materials, Jowatherm GROW 853.20 is particularly resource-efficient—it can be processed at temperatures starting from 120°C. Stepping it up further, Jowatherm GROW 853.22, contains 51% biobased raw materials. In addition, the wide range of adhesion also facilitates a reliable bonding on demanding surfaces.
