Packaging

In the packaging sector, we seek to develop adhesives that guarantee an effective accommodation of the packaged products, keeping them stable, safe and unchanged, and that do not fail under weight or as a result of temperature changes when being transported.

Therefore, Colquímica Adhesives has developed a diversified and customised range of industrial adhesives for the packaging industry, namely Hot Melts, most notably Kmelt Evolution.

Along with this solution, Colquímica Adhesives also produces different types of industrial adhesives, ideal for the packaging industry, such as: The industrial adhesives of the Kmelt Technology, Kmelt Ultra and Kmelt Extend ranges, for the paper bags and packaging sector; the Ksticks brand Hot Melt glue in stick format and the Kolwater brand water-based adhesives and Koldex brand adhesives, ideal for labelling.

Kmelt Evolution
Kmelt Evolution

The Kmelt brand's Evolution adhesives are especially suitable for the packaging industry.

They can be sold in the form of pearls, beads and small 'pillows' and offer several characteristics that meet the needs of the packaging market: excellent adhesion to difficult substrates, superior thermal stability, versatility and high performance in various applications, low density, faint odour and low smoke emissions.

Kmelt Extend
Kmelt Extend

Our constant search for perfection and innovation allowed us to develop the Kmelt Extend range: a brand of technological adhesives that revolutionised Hot Melts for the packaging industry.

These adhesives use an innovative technology, called HIPO (formulations with high polymer incorporation). The Kmelt Extend range includes industrial adhesives that have high thermal stability and faint odour, as well as low density and improved adhesion properties that increase its yield. The increased incorporation of polymers in the adhesives allows reducing the percentage of resin in Hot Melts, thus making for a more stable solution to supply the market. Kmelt Extend adhesives offer improved performance and contribute to improving the final appearance of the package.

Ksticks
Ksticks

Ksticks is a brand of Hot Melt adhesives intended for manual craft works in industry and DIY applications.

These products are supplied in 11.5 mm- and 43 mm- diameter sticks, and are used with appropriate adhesive applicator guns.

Our Ksticks adhesives stand out for their easy-melt properties, for quick applications, good substrate penetration, versatility for bonding a wide variety of substrates, long open times for manual applications and short setting time, for fast bonding.

Kolwater Technology
Kolwater Technology

At Colquímica Adhesives, we develop water-based dispersion adhesives, which we sell under the Kolwater brand.

These adhesives are formulated from water-dispersed synthetic resins, which are applied onto substrates at room temperature.

Over six decades of experience in the development of these types of adhesive allow us to provide highly-technological adhesives for very demanding sectors, such as the food and beverage industry.

Suitable for the packaging industry, Kolwater adhesives ensure good adhesion, also providing good versatility due to their adhesion to various substrates and good cold resistance. Their setting time is short, so drying is fast. The Kolwater range of adhesives achieves high performance in very fast machines, and is available in a number of formats, including: bucket (20- and 30-kg, drum (60 and 120 kg) and container (1000 kg).

Koldex Technology
Koldex Technology

Under the Koldex brand, we present a wide range of caseins and synthetic adhesives, recommended for the labelling of glass and/or plastic bottles.

These adhesives allow placing labels on bottles whether they are dry, moist or hot (up to 40°C). Once applied, these adhesives present high resistance to cold water.

Through the Koldex Technology brand, we offer medium- and high-viscosity adhesives with high cold tack and very quick drying. All Koldex Technology industrial adhesives are sold in 33-kg buckets.

Because these adhesives are intended for labelling returnable bottles, being biodegradable is a key factor for suitability to conventional recycling processes.
