Chementator: Phthalate-free glue    

By Gerald Ondrey |

Henkel KGaA (Düsseldorf, Germany; edlinks.chemengonline.com/7370-581) has developed a new generation of plasticizer-free dispersion adhesives called Adhesin A 78 — a copolymer system whose formulation largely consists of renewable raw materials. The adhesive is said to be especially suitable for food packaging. Germany’s Federal Risk Assessment Institute (BfR; Berlin) now recommends that 1 mg of the plasticizer DIBP (diisobutyl phthalate) per kilogram of food should not be exceeded, with a maximum of 0.5 mg for babyfood. The adhesives of the Adhesin A 78 series do not contain any DIBP, so the contamination of food can now be entirely avoided, says Henkel.   Click here for a full pdf version of the Chementator Section
