BPA-NI and epoxysilane-free laminating adhesives from the ACTEbond® range for stand-up pouches

Stand-up pouches are suitable for numerous applications and have been constantly growing in importance on the packaging market due to their excellent flexibility, low empty weight, and conservative use of materials. Brand owners also benefit from diverse visual and tactile finishing options. The huge success of these pouches as a modern packaging system is also due in no small part to their user-friendly handling.

FOOD SAFETY THANKS TO ADHESIVES THAT ARE FREE OF EPOXYSILANES AND BPA
​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
Reliably safeguarding consumer health is our top priority. When it comes to applications that involve contact with foods, we painstakingly investigate the safety of the relevant raw materials and use only materials that verifiably comply with food regulations (such as FDA and EU directives).

As part of a safety-conscious approach, we have developed adhesives that are free from BPA and epoxysilanes (such as GLYMO and GLYEO) but also exhibit outstanding performance.
