End of Line Packaging Adhesives

Minimizing risks along the packaging line

After choosing a safe adhesive, food manufactures should consider and minimize further risks along the packaging line, including an uncontrolled exposure of foodstuff to dust, machine cleaners, spilled adhesive, but also a sub-optimal set-up of the adhesive system such as incorrect adhesive application quantity, wrong adhesive temperature, or a sub-optimal adhesive placement on the package.

All of these factors may negatively impact the safety of the final food products, which may expose consumers to health risks. It is therefore crucial that these factors are continuously addressed and minimized.
