Tecbond 345 – The fast setting packaging adhesive for difficult substrates

Tecbond 345 is a fast-setting, white packaging adhesive, providing versatile adhesion to difficult substrates.

Designed to be used mainly on paper and board, its instant grab capabilities mean it can bond coated surfaces, such as UV varnish, that other adhesives would otherwise struggle with. The adhesive structure is based on the latest metallocene catalysed polyolefin elastomers.

Formulated to have a short open and working time to maximise efficiency, the adhesive’s excellent bond strength provides packages with a tamper-proof seal. This adds structural rigidity to cartons and trays, meaning the packaging material can be thinner.

Along with its class-leading bond strength and versatility, tecbond 345 has been designed to withstand temperatures as low as -40 °C, making it the ideal adhesive for products stored in deep freeze.

When compared to staples or tape, which can damage packaging or obscure graphics, tecbond adhesives are non-destructive to apply, safe to use, and have strong holding capabilities. When stored in a cool, dry environment, they can last almost indefinitely without degrading, giving them a nearly unlimited shelf life.

Available in 12mm sticks and 43mm slugs, tecbond 345 is compatible with the tec range of bead application glue guns. As with all tecbond adhesives, 345 is engineered to work together with the applicators to improve overall efficiency and provide the best possible performance for users.
