Research and improvement in label production process: waste reduction through adhesive quality improvement

As for any industry, the companies are constantly trying to improve their products. This can be done directly on the raw materials or on the production lines. But profitability can also be improved by reducing wastes while increasing production rates. So this project will investigate the processing conditions and adhesion formulations in terms of mechanical, thermal, chemical and adhesion properties. This will be done by optimization of both processing condition and concentration of the components. For comparison, rheological and mechanical properties will be investigated to predict the processability and performances of new adhesives for label printing.
