Extremely strong soluble biobased adhesive.

A biobased adhesive, that supports up to 15 kg.f traction forces (cosmetic packaging requirements), that dissolves when submerged in water? YES!

Product separability has always posed challenges for brands and recycling entities, with limited solutions available. However, this glue, developed in collaboration with Betanzos HB, presents a wealth of new opportunities. Made primarily from plant-based sugars, the glue provides excellent mechanical resistance to force, fatigue, and breakage. Despite its strong bonding capabilities, the adhesive can be easily dissolved by submerging it in tap water for several hours. This not only allows for effortless separation of the elements but also results in nutrient-rich "sweet" water that can be used to nourish plants.
