    Wakol presents adhesive systems for the manufacturing of mattresses  and upholstery

    Wakol presents adhesive systems for manufacturing upholstery and mattresses at the upcoming interzum 2017 in Cologne.

    Visit Wakol at interzum from 16. - 19. Mai in Hall 10.1, Aisle A, Stand 058 and convince yourself of the product highlights INTERCOLL D 3447 and INTERCOLL D 3386 .

    INTERCOLL D 3447 Roller Adhesive – is a mattress adhesive for the manufacture of all types of mattresses. The water-based 1-C CR-Latex Roller adhesive is solvent-free and characterized by its superb tension stability when wet. The easy assembly and the process reliability are featured by the quick force build-up and the excellent instant tack.

    INTERCOLL D 3386 for direct packing – has been developed for roller and spray application. The very fast drying of the adhesive makes a directly packaging of the mattress possible. It can be used as one-side or contact adhesive for all common mattresses and upholstery materials.

    During interzum 2017 Wakol presents live two spray applications:

    The 2-C CR-Latex Dispersion Adhesive INTERCOLL D 3453 is used in combination with INTERCOLL D 3437 Activator by spray-mix-application. It shows high initial strength for bonding foam materials in a short time.

    INTERCOLL D 3460 is a 1-C CR-Latex Dispersion Adhesive can be used at a low spraying pressure, thus reducing the overspray and optimising consumption. The product can be applied using the "free-flow" method. In comparison to the mixed two-component adhesive, INTERCOLL D 3460 has a higher solids content and therefore a lower water content. This adds to a drying benefit.

    WAKOL Sealing Compounds – expanded product range

    Wakol presents at Metpack two new additions to its extensive Sealing Compound range.

    - WAKOL D 3756 Sealing Compound for Beverage cans

    - WAKOL PU 4320 / 4315 Sealing Compound for Food pails and drums.

    WAKOL D 3756 Sealing Compound for Beverage cans

    WAKOL D 3756 Sealing Compound is a water-based sealing compound based on SBR for beverage application and is suitable for the filling of mineral water, carbonated soft drink, beer as well as dairy products. It shows a very good performance using high throughput application machinery (up to 1500 epm / rotational multi-head liner) applying to small diameters.

    It is formulated to achieve virtually no taste or odour influences on filling goods. Therefore WAKOL D 3756 Sealing Compound is suitable for taste-sensitive filling goods like e.g. mineral water.

    It complies with latest regulatory requirements, according to European and FDA food contact regulations. TNO and Nehring certificates are available

    It shows excellent performance on high-speed rotational multi liners due to low drying tendency on nozzles. Reject rates are exceptionally low. An excellent shear stability provides optimum performance through central supply systems.

    WAKOL PU 4320 / 4315 Sealing Compound for Food pails and drums

    WAKOL PU 4320 / 4315 Sealing Compound is a two-component, self-blowing polyurethane foam. It was especially developed to form gaskets for pails and drum covers with ring ladge application. For the product, full compliance for food contact according to European Food Contact law has been achieved.

    As the foam shows a very good resistance against water, fats, oils and aliphatic solvents it can also be used for the sealing of packaging of aqueous-based products for technical applications, glycols, oils, aliphatic solvents and solid filling materials.

    The reaction leads to an elastic and fine-porous gasket with a smooth surface. 2-C-Polyurethane technology offers several advantages: no oven needed, high form stability of the gasket, plasticizer free, low migration, PVC free.

    The Wakol exhibition team is looking forward to inform you about the full product range and will be available for further details. Visit Wakol in Hall 3.0 Stand 3A34.

Challenges such as areas with forklift traffic and heavy-duty requirements are overcome by the secure and stable bond.

    WAKOL MS 550 Resilient and Rubber Flooring Adhesive is characterised by its very low squeezing tendency. For unavoidable work on the flooring imprints in the surface are kept to a minimum. LVT flooring is held securely in place right from the start thanks to the high suction adhesion and initial tack.
