Mumbai, India --
Dow Performance Packaging received the Ringier Technology Innovation Award for its development of ROBOND L-95D, a single component water based laminating adhesive. The award, one of the industry's most prestigious honors, was presented to Dow recently at an award presentation ceremony held in conjunction with ProPak China 2012 trade fair in Shanghai.
ROBOND L-95D was developed through the joint efforts of the Dow Chemical Company's R&D center in Buffalo Grove, IL, USA and the Dow Shanghai Technology Center in China. It utilizes Dow's unique acrylic emulsion technology with a focus on the balance between product performance and operational convenience while creating sustainability benefits for packaging manufacturers.
"Being recognized by Ringier, one of the most notable trade media organizations in Asia and the Middle East, is an honor and indicative of the success we aim to achieve with sustainable, water-based technology," said Peter Wong, Asia Pacific Commercial Vice President for Performance Plastics. "This adhesive was developed specifically to address the growth in Asia's flexible packaging market where there is a direct need for sustainable packaging. Dow is the global leader for water based adhesive technology and is leading the way toward environmentally friendly packaging, exemplified through successes across the world.
Dow developed ROBOND L-95D for applications on both metalized and clear film substrates. It does not require pre-mixing steps, and can be used in a broad range of applications, which enables converters to achieve much improved operational efficiency. ROBOND L-95D is the newest member of the Dow water based laminating adhesives family that fulfills the company's sustainability commitment by completely removing solvent emission and significantly improving workplace safety.
