Heat Seal and Lidding Adhesives for Packaging

Heat seal and lidding adhesives for packaging can be supplied in the form of  Hot Melt Heat Seal AdhesiveHeat Seal Films & Tape – Water-based Heat Seal – Solvent based Heat Seal Coating.

To select the best heat seal adhesive type for your application – it is important to consider both the end use and the converting machine and process that makes the final heat seal.

We can help you determine the best heat seal adhesive for your label or lidding process.  In addition to the  – Proper activation temperature for a heat seal adhesive, considerations such as the  – Amount of pressure being applied  the  – Heat sealing temperature required to complete the final seal, and the  – Dwell time  (the time that the heat will be applied to the heatseal adhesive).  All these factors, will have an impact on the type of heat seal adhesive we will recommend.  Selecting the correct heat seal adhesive will ensure that your equipment runs well and produces high quality product.

Food Grade Heat Seal Adhesive

All of our label, lidding and packaging Heat Seal adhesives for the food & beverage industry meet the requirements of the   FDA Adhesives regulation:   21CFR175.105 Indirect Food Additives.

Below are some of our most common types of Heat Seal Adhesives:

# 7-8258

7-8258 Acrylic Emulsion heat seal adhesive –  58% Solids,  100cps.  A packaging adhesive polymer that is heat reactive, self-curing acrylic latex with carboxyl functionality.  Strong adhesion to polar substances with excellent water resistance; fast drying and high bond strength for wet laminations; high oil and plasticiser resistance after crosslinking; broad FDA approvals.   Excellent for wet laminating because it dries rapidly and develops high bond strength quickly. It performs well in high speed laminating operations.  # 7-8258 also forms strong bonds at relatively low heat sealing temperatures – critical for many of today’s temperature-sensitive substrates.  It has good specific adhesion to most polar substrates, and it forms tough, permanent bonds. It also has good water resistance.

# HS410

HS410 is an EVA type heat seal film adhesive – Self-wound on a 42# silicon liner that is transferable from the silicon liner.  HS410 has a wide range activation temperature with good adhesion to a variety of substrates including metals, coated films, papers and plastics. It was designed for bonding to difficult substrates in the sanding disc and Tin Tie adhesive markets.


Adhesive Coat Weight lbs.:  14 ± 2.
Adhesive Softening Point °F:  175 ± 5.
Activation Temperature °F:  250 – 265.
Application Temperature °F:  300 – 350.
Dwell Time Sec:  0.2 plus (Depending on temperature and pressure).

General Information – HS410 Adhesive is specifically formulated for bonding to metal, non-woven, paper and film substrates. All ingredients used in the makeup of this adhesive meet the requirements for FDA Regulation 175.105 “Adhesives”.

# 7-26387
