H.B. Fuller to Showcase Sustainable Adhesives and Tapes at Interpack 2023

H.B. Fuller is participating, together with the formerly known Lemtapes, in Interpack 2023 â?? a leading trade and packaging fair for food, non-food, beverage, confectionery, bakery, pharmaceutics, and cosmetics. The event is taking place May 4-10, in Dà¼sseldorf, Germany.

The two companies will showcase how their combined expertise and complementary range of technologies helps packaging manufacturers save energy, reduce waste, lightweight packaging, and enable recycling and reuse. A comprehensive line of sustainable packaging adhesives and tapes that contribute to advancing the circular economy will be on display, with primary applications including packaging reinforcement, case and carton sealing, beverage labeling, paper straws, e-commerce, flexible materials, and easy-opening containers, among others.

H.B. Fuller acquired Lemtapes â?? a Finnish provider and producer of ecological, innovative tapes and adhesives for the packaging and woodworking industries â?? in late 2022 to add specialized market knowledge, expand regional capacity, and strengthen business synergies across Finland and throughout Europe. This strategic fit between the two integrated manufacturers brings broad solutions, new equipment technology, and innovation benefits to the packaging industry. Together, they offer a higher level of service and deliver high-performance adhesive-coated tapes and sustainable complementary product portfolios for improved business efficiency, and a reduced environmental footprint.
