Gluefast can help you with two adhesive types to seal cases and cartons:
Water Based Glues and Adhesives are safe and offer longer open times. They can be applied with a simple squeeze bottle, our SOLO GLUE RITER®, or our P.A.T. (Pneumatic Adhesive Tank). You can use a low cost vegetable glue which will set up in about a minute. One of our faster setting water based resin adhesives will set up faster (generally 10-30 seconds) and may provide greater water resistance. These products can be applied with a brush, extruded into a bead, or sprayed.
At Gluefast, we apply glue to cartons and then use plain paper tape to quickly seal the case. The glue then dries and forms a very strong bond – stronger than the corrugated itself!
For faster setting case and carton sealing, the speed of set of Hot Melt Adhesives are much faster than water-based adhesives. Our Hot Melt Glue Guns and Glue Sticks can quickly apply hot melt adhesive for bonding with compression times as low as one or two seconds.
Our Glue Dots® applied with the QuikDot Pro applicator is another solution for sealing boxes & cartons. There are two formulas:
QDP-7100 for beverage packs & lighter boxes, 800 patterns per roll
QDP-8100 for heavier corrugated cartons, 600 patterns per roll
If you have a particular gluing application, contact our Glue Master to see if we can be of assistance. If we cannot help you we will do our best to point you in the direction of someone who can!
