Jowat promotes green adhesives

The adhesive manufacturer Jowat has developed a comprehensive range of sustainable adhesives for real-life applications. The all-round, no-hassle package of Jowat’s ‘Green Adhesives’ provides solutions for central topics that are very relevant in today’s world – sustainability, climate protection and conservation of resources.

These adhesives facilitate sustainable bonding processes that are economically viable and are developed with a focus on real-life applications and industrial-scale availability.

Jowat’s portfolio of sustainable products is optimised for processors and bonding applications in the production of furniture and building elements. There is a heightened interest in the new bio-based PUR hot melt adhesive Jowatherm-Reaktant Grow 657.40 for edge banding and the bio-based PVAc dispersion adhesive Jowacoll Grow 105.85 for solid wood bonding and laminating.

Both adhesives contain a high amount of bio-based raw materials of more than 20% and impress with their performance.

Jowat’s Jowatherm Grow 853.22 is used for the sustainable packaging of furniture components, interior doors and engineered wood or laminate flooring: The bio-based hot-melt adhesive couples a high content of renewable raw materials of more than 50% with high cold resistance and a very wide range of adhesion.

To address the issue of occupational safety, the Jowatherm-Reaktant MR product line supplies a broad spectrum of powerful adhesives with hazard-free labeling, which enables processors to efficiently avoid the additional training requirement mandated by law within the European Union as of August 2023.

Sustainability, in all its different forms and the holistic approaches to increase efficiency and sustainability from the start to the end of the production line, is another area of focus. Here, Jowat convinces with its performance and process-optimised low-temperature adhesives.

Jowat-Toptherm 851.99 is a hot melt adhesive optimised for packaging which, in turn, facilitates substantial energy savings due to its low processing temperature starting from 99°C. (
