Lohmann launches biobased, solvent-free tape portfolio 09 May 2023

As part of its own sustainability strategy, Lohmann is driving forward sustainable adhesive technologies with its new DuploCOLL® ECO adhesive tape portfolio, which contains newly developed, biobased adhesives.

In the latest development by Lohmann’s engineers to reduce the CO2 footprint on several levels, the new biobased adhesives are solvent-free and feature recyclable liner systems that can be returned to the regular circular economy. The products are manufactured using Lohmann’s 100% solvent-free TwinMelt® technology, a coating process that enables adhesive tape production with low energy consumption and reduced CO2 emissions. The energy required within the manufacturing process at the main production site in Neuwied, Germany, is also completely covered by renewable energies. 

“With the ECO portfolio, we support our customers in making their individual production process even more sustainable. All whilst delivering the usual reliable performance, good initial adhesion, excellent
cold-bonding properties, and good adhesive strength on high and low energy surfaces,” says Sascha Rakhsh Bahar, head of sales projects at Lohmann GmbH & Co KG. “The tapes have high aging resistance and can be used on recycled substrates, such as cardboard or corn starch-based materials.”

For different applications in various industries, in foam and felt materials, laminating products or the production of special labels, the products of the ECO range are available as transfer tapes, double-sided scrim tapes or with special paper carriers, on jumbo or log rolls.
