Adhesive Stitching: Cost Savings and Adhesive Usage Reduction
Adhesive stitching is used in food and beverage packaging and typically metallocene works best for this method of dispensing. Essentially any machine can perform this function, as long as you have a pattern controller for that machine.
Simply switching your adhesive application pattern can lower operating costs while simultaneously contributing to the environment!
By adjusting the pattern on your pattern controller for your machine, you can switch from a traditional consecutive adhesive beads to a stitched bead pattern. It is not necessary to put as much adhesive as possible on product packaging to ensure the tightest closure. Adhesive stitching is just as effective and can reduce adhesive consumption by as much as 50%!
So what does this mean?
- Reduced material usage and waste
- Reduced energy consumption
- Greater use of sustainable materials
If you are interested in saving on your adhesive costs and consumption, adhesive stitching can help you reach those goals! Feel free to contact Astro Packaging to find out how.
