BPA-NI and epoxysilane-FREE adhesives from the ACTEbond® range

For portion packs


Portion packs offer a multitude of benefits.  They embody the convenience philosophy of ready-made meals (including smaller pack sizes) and easy portioning. The packaging must never affect the quality of the contents and always needs to meet the visual requirements of the brand owners.

​​​​​​​USAGE
  • For pet and human food
  • For drinks such as tea and coffee

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 (direct) 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, ACTEGA has developed adhesives that are free from BPA and epoxysilanes (such as GLYMO and GLYEO) but also exhibit outstanding performance.

Our adhesives are also available in a wide variety of colors


The pigmented adhesives from ACTEGA combine a decorative appearance with functional performance, while our color expertise offers additional, unique features for our ACTEbond® laminating adhesives range.

​​​​​​​The colored versions enable you to replace full-area color printing. This saves on processing time and costs while also making it possible to create custom packaging designs by printing additional colors. Our pigmented adhesives are also impressive thanks to their excellent covering properties and their suitability for direct contact with foods (in line with FDA and EU directives).

SUSTAINABILITY

By using thinner aluminum, ACTEGA is helping cut packaging waste and making a major contribution to preserving resources (reduced use of materials and energy).
