The PremoLam F system is designed for applications that require bond strengths of 200+ lbs/in. PremoLam F works synergistically with the solvent or SAL adhesive to provide a consistent bond for the end product. It provides high bond strengths on polyester substrate constructions and is suitable for both liquid and solid products. This system enables enhanced graphics while maintaining package integrity when hot or frozen filled; PremoLam F can be used for microwave pouches and withstands cooking temperatures of more than 275°F.
“We knew the system would have to deliver excellent bond strength at 24 hours (green bonds) and at 72 hours (aged bonds), enabling converters to compete with those using solvent-based inks,” said John Gaber, product director, Packaging Inks North America. “In addition, the inks would need print high end graphics and work with multiple adhesives and films. Our product development group answered the challenge with PremoLam F - this new system enables printers to use low VOC inks to create high value solventless lamination packaging that was once only possible by using solvent-based inks. PremoLam F unlocks the door to the solventless lamination market for water-based ink users.”
