High importance of equipment solutions and operators’ expertise

Choosing the right adhesives and coatings is crucial for converters to produce food safe laminates and to achieve the desired packaging performance such as filling good resistance, retort, convenience, barrier properties, sealability or mechanical protection of foodstuff. Converters should eliminate potential risks for food safety along the manufacturing process, including mixing ratio and continuous dosing of adhesive systems, measurement and testing of laminates as e.g. migration, incorrect adhesive application or solvent retention. Occupational safety as e.g. safe handling of chemicals, and wrong temperature settings is a closely related, important aspect.

Such errors can have multiple causes and can 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.
