For many years, Bostik has been a leader in the tape and label industry, manufacturing a wide range of adhesive technology solutions for use in these markets. Our solutions increase production efficiency and improve product performance, appearance and identification.
From removable pressure sensitive adhesives, Rx and freezer grade labels, Bostik has the ability to tailor adhesives to customer application technologies and relevant substrates.
Let’s take a closer look at the types of products Bostik offers for the tape and label industry:
- Lower Cost Products
- Tape products manufactured using hot melt pressure sensitive adhesives (HMPSAs) are lower in cost than solvent acrylics if the performance meets the application needs. Additionally, HMPSAs produce little to no volatile organic compounds and can be disposed of without special precautions.
