Europe: H.B. Fuller releases adhesive that removes PSA labels on returnable bottles

SHARE

H.B. Fuller has launched a new water-based pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) FulltakT SE 8301.

Formulated using proprietary polymer technology, it helps beverage producers efficiently remove PSA labels during the label wash-off process of returnable bottles.

Fulltak SE 8301 connects ideal coating, drying and conversion performance for the label stock producer with optimum labelling performance and clean label removal for the beverage producer.

The intricately designed PSA labels can be efficiently applied to glass bottles.

Under typical conditions, Fulltak SE 8301 delivers two hours ice-water resistance, thus maintaining brand integrity during use.

Additionally, returned bottles are easily processed through the wash-off cycle — labels coated with this new adhesive are cleanly removed during a typical warm, caustic wash-off process, and importantly, it remains coated on the label, minimizing contamination of the wash water.
