Henkel’s Technomelt Supra 90 is a hot melt adhesive used mainly in food and beverage (F&B) packaging. The solution has been adopted by customers who are drawn to its characteristics like bond strength, ease of application, low setting time and high-performance reliability, amongst others.

Technomelt Supra 90 uses metallocene technology that is superior to the alternative Ethylene-Vinyl Acetate (EVA). Solutions that make use of EVAs tend to have limited thermal stability and are prone to char-build up, which eventually results in needing to replace parts of the application system. In contrasts, Technomelt Supra 90 avoids char build up, leading to higher performance and less down time.

Technomelt Supra 90 is mainly used for carton closing and sealing. It has a low ability to migrate between layers of packaging due to its high molecular weight. Food safety is enhanced as the chances of contaminating the packaged product is subsequently lower.  Any tampering with the carton packaging is also immediately visible, thereby discouraging unauthorized openings and increasing food safety.
