AdhesivesWe work closely with adhesive formulators to improvethe sustainability and performance of everydayproducts. Using our specialty resins for adhesives.We draw upon our broad understanding of materialsscience and applications across the full resin spectrum;from water-based acrylics, urethanes, and urethaneacrylics to solvent based polyesters, in both one andtwo-component technologies.Our collaborations have produced new innovations to enhance people’s lives. Like anadhesive for beer bottle labels which makesthem easier to recycle. Or creating a durableadhesive for identity cards so it stands upto intensive use and exposure to extremeconditions. Sustainability is a key focal areafor DSM. Working together we can help youdevelop adhesive solutions for your productsand move to more sustainable production processes to create a better future for everyone.4AdhesivesPackaging adhesivesIndustrial laminationFor packaging materials used in food andother consumer products, we have developedspecialty resins for laminating adhesives inclose partnership with leading adhesivesmanufacturers and converters. This resultedin resins to laminate different films at lowertemperatures to produce a multi-layeredpackaging closure, thereby reducing the timeand energy needed for production. In addition, we created a stronger package that offersbetter protection for computer accessoriespurchased in a store. Whether you want toimprove adhesion, reduce odor or use moreenvironemtally friendly materials, our uniqueexperience in materials science and applications for adhesive laminates can help resolveyour toughest problems.Our specialty resins for industrial laminationliterally hold the world together. They helpcreate kitchen cupboards that last longer, dayin and day out, in every ambient temperature.Credit cards laminated with adhesives basedon our specialty resins are easy to read andextremely durable, no matter how often theyare used. We work with customers across theindustrial lamination industry to develop resins for adhesive laminate systems that makepeople’s lives easier. Our unique expertise inadhesive applications and materials scienceproduces adhesive laminates that perform reliably around the globe and require less energyto apply. Together we can work to develop innovative adhesives to meet new performance,cost, production, or environmental requirements.Consumer adhesivesBy using our specialty resins, the consumeradhesive manufacturer is able to createuniversal adhesives for children that will dryas a clear film on their artwork and washes offeasily with soap and water and from clothingin a typical detergent wash. These are someof the bright ideas that have resulted from ourclose co-operation with adhesive formulatorsand manufacturers. All based on our cuttingedge understanding of resin chemistries andadhesive applications. Do you want to improveperformance, lower costs, or move to moresustainable adhesives? We have the experience and know-how in specialty resins to help.Adhesives5
