Biobased glue. Soluble in water

customer: none. Internal R&D

Product separability has been always a headache for brands and recycling agents. With no real options, most of the time we focus on redesign products and packaging. But his glue opens a new universe of possibilities.

This glue is composed mainly by sugars of vegetal origin. It offers a great mechanical resistance to strength, fatigue and rupture. But even if it guarantees an efficient mechanical bonding, once it is submerged several hours in a basin with tap water the glue dilutes. Therefore, the elements are easy to separate (with no glue at all) and the water is a "sweet" water with several nutrients to watering plants! A project done in collaboration with Betanzos HB.
