The Green Adhesives range from Jowat meets different sustainability aspects for bonding processes which are more responsible towards the environment and people. This means the successful combination of adhesives with the highest possible content of bio-based raw materials and resources and health-friendly bonding processes—while ensuring that the adhesives are compatible with existing application systems.
The monomer-reduced PUR hot melt adhesives of the Jowatherm-Reaktant MR product range have a low content of diisocyanate monomers of less than 0.1% and are therefore free of hazard labeling requirements. They facilitate processes free of pollutants. This allows adhesive applications without additional training of the employees.
Jowatherm-Reaktant MR 614.50 is a newly developed adhesive from Jowat SE, Detmold/Germany, which can be used for the lamination of activated carbon filters and multi-layer filter elements. It provides very good bonding results with small application amounts. The adhesive can be processed at relatively low temperatures between 100°C and 120°C and thereby ensures highly resource-friendly and optimized bonding processes.
The bio-based product family Jowatherm Grow almost exclusively uses resins from verified sustainably managed forests or pine resins which are a by-product in paper production. In terms of availability and bonding performance, these bio-based raw materials are comparable with petroleum-based systems and they are not in competition for resources with the food industry.
The potential application of these powerful and sustainable hot melt adhesives for the pleating of filter media will be a key topic at the Jowat stand at this year’s Filtech in Cologne/Germany from March 8-10, 2022.
