Bio-based adhesives are hot!

Source: Henkel
Germany-based consumer products company Henkel announced this week that it has partnered with US-based DaniMer Scientific to develop bio-based hotmelt adhesives for consumer packaging.

The goal for the partnership is to market a technology platform that includes a family of bio-based hotmelt (is this one word or two words?) adhesive formulations worldwide.

The alliance expects the first products to be ready for launch in the first half of 2013. According to the companies, the biobased adhesives can be applied to a wide range of customer operating needs such as general purpose end of line, high performance end of line, labeling, and even specialized applications such as frozen food packaging.
