WESSCO – UV Adhesive for Film Laminating

Adhesives and coatings are an unbeatable combination

WESSCO® UV laminating adhesives keep in place what needs to stay in place and significantly extend the life of the packaging.

Our WESSCO® UV laminating adhesives do a great job: They bond the foil to the substrate and protect the surfaces, making it scuff- and waterproof, as well as resistant to chemicals. The increased tear strength of the paper or cardboard is another great side-effect. The result: a durable print product of excellent quality. Our products are colourless, odourless, solvent-free and therefore eco-friendly. The adhesive composition allows easy processing of pre-treated OPP foils. With the right foil and the right coating, laminating foils can also be finished with coating effects such as our Soft Touch, turning the product into a tangible highlight.

DIVAR® adhesives – for digital finishing with or without cold foils

For digital finishing with diVar® technology, we have developed a very special adhesive that can be used as a coating in addition to processing cold foils. Our DIVAR® adhesive is applied with a silicone calender and, once it has been cured with UV rays, can no longer be distinguished from a coating. This creates exciting effects which cast a new light on the end product. The advantages of digital printing with digital finishing can therefore be exploited to the fullest.

Our DIVAR® adhesives are available as thin-layer adhesives for quantities of approx. 4 to 32 g/m2 (cold-foil application) and as relief adhesives for quantities of approx. 16 to 64 g/m2 (coating application).

The DMAX machine for digital spot and relief coatings is available for the efficient processing of our DIVAR® coatings/adhesives. This machine was developed together with Steinemann Technology AG and enables the simultaneous application of coatings and adhesives. This saves time by processing in only one pass.
