|You’re probably aware of the standard dispenser box for manual applications that use Glue Dots. Or, you might have had success with the Dot Shot Pro Applicator (DSP). The latest hand applicator, the Quick Dot Pro (QDP), is making a tremendous impact in the beverage industry by simplifying the resealing of popped-open cartons in the field by the beverage distributor. Ever needed to repair a product or package at the end of a production line? The QDP is the perfect tool for that job as well, with adhesive options ranging from semi-permanent to permanent solutions.|

If you need a dextrin or resin adhesive for laminating on an Automatan or a glue lap adhesive for manufacturing a corrugated box, Wisdom has the best water-based adhesive technology available. Additionally, Wisdom manufactures high-performance, True Metallocene-based hot melts for end-of-line packaging applications that are comparable in price to conventional EVA hot melts.
Metallocene-based adhesives provide many benefits that include improved mileage, reduced application rates and they are more "equipment-friendly" so adhesive equipment downtime is virtually eliminated. A more recent development with metallocene based hot melt technology is that it is used in newer bottle labeling adhesives and thus many of the benefits of metallocene are now available for this important application.
A year ago, we got the call to help out at a Southern California-based corrugated box and folding carton plant with a litho laminating application.
The Mapei Corporation has recently consolidated their product line in an ongoing effort to maximize efficiencies and keep costs low for the consumer. Therefore, Ultrabond Turf 577 has been discontinued. This one-part adhesive was green in color and specifically designed for residential applications. Consumers now have two adhesive options for residential turf.
If these symptoms or concerns sound familiar, there is an exciting new innovation in hot melt equipment that eliminates these issues. It’s the InvisiPac system from Graco, a leading manufacturer of fluid handling and dispensing systems.
