Recycling made easy - thanks to the right adhesive

Muamer Mujkic, 18.02.2020


“Reduce – Reuse – Recycle – Dispose of” These buzzwords are now part of our everyday life, just like the products we buy and which have to be “disposed of” after use. The number of people on our planet is growing day by day and with it the amount of disposed products and mountains of rubbish. The above-mentioned approach seems perfectly understandable.

UV-curing adhesives can now be used for a wide range of applications. Although originally developed to replace solvent-based adhesives, UV adhesives can do much more. Due to the artimelt base polymer formulations, removable adhesives and adhesives with a strong bond can be manufactured using one and the same raw adhesive mixture. artimelt UV adhesives can therefore be used in a wide range of different applications.


Adhesive for sterile environments

Muamer Mujkic, 24.10.2019


A large number of medical products are packaged and sterilized, including plasters, medical tape, surgery drapes and ECG electrodes. All of these products use an adhesive. The packaging is also often closed or sealed with an adhesive. The adhesive must be able to withstand the sterilization processes commonly used without its properties changing. Furthermore, the sterile properties of the product must remain the same over a long period of time.

Labels in the supermarket When walking through the supermarket, have you ever noticed how many products feature labels?

Introduction The MDR (Medical Device Regulation) is currently a hot topic and is keeping manufacturers of medical products and their suppliers on their toes.

Wolfgang Aufmuth, 31.01.2019


Strong adhesive labelWe’re sure you’re familiar with the situation – a customer has requested a strongly adhesive label that is affixed to a cardboard box and is either destroyed or damages the underlying layer when removed.

Adhesive for direct skin contactWhen developing an adhesive that comes into direct contact with the skin, there are always many factors to consider – ones which also need to be coordinated with each other.
