Using recyclable glue on beer manufacturing, contributing to a sustainable ecology!
Using recyclable glue on beer manufacturing, contributing to a sustainable ecology! Jun 21, 2022
Using recyclable glue on beer manufacturing, contributing to a sustainable ecology!In the hot summer, having a glass of cold beer is one of life's great pleasures.Do you know that the plastic wrap of beer cans turns out to be a killer of marine life?Compared with other beverages, the packaging of beer is more environmental friendly. Only one plastic ring can put several cans of beer together for customers to take. However, the plastic film of beer packaging cannot be recycled and is light and thin. If it is rushed into the sea, it could become the hidden murderous intent in the sea, causing sea turtles, dolphins, and seabirds to be unable to eat, starving to death because their stomachs are stuffed with plastic.How important is the reduction of plastic packaging!As a packaging material, plastic has the advantages of lightness, thinness and low cost. Many commodity packagings contain plastic components. However, plastic cannot be completely decomposed in a short period of time, and it is easy to pollute the land, ocean, and even the air during the decomposition process. According to United Nations statistics, about 8 million tons of plastic waste enters the ocean every year, and these wastes eventually turn into plastic particles, which enter the human body through the food chain can endanger health. In recent years, consumers have finally realized that plastic reduction not only protects the earth's ecology, but also protects the safety of food, air and drinking water. In daily consumption, the concept of plastic reduction is gradually being taken into consideration in purchasing.The plastic-reduction beer packagingA well-know beer brand released a new type of packaging in 2018, which uses recyclable glue to fasten beer cans together, and small pieces of plastic handles to replace the traditional shrink film packaging of beer, claiming to be able to reduce plastic by 76%. The concept is to use the joints between the beer cans to apply hot melt adhesive between the cans to fix them, and only add a plastic handle outside the six-can package to achieve the purpose of reducing plastic. It is currently available in the UK and Norway markets. The design of plastic-reduction packaging can save the equivalent of 60 million plastic bags a year, and has the opportunity to reduce plastic by 1,200 tons per year.Recyclable adhesive replaces plasticAdhesives cannot damage the printing on the can, cannot affect the quality of beer, and must be able to withstand extreme refrigerated temperatures between storage, transportation, consumer end, and withstand the temperature changes of high sunlight exposure during shipping. Consumers can easily separate the two beer cans, and the residual glue on the beer cans will not stick.Finally, the glue residue on the beer can can be easily removed from the aluminum can for recycling purposes, and the glue can be recycled along with the beer aluminum can.Packaging to reduce plasticAt present, only the famous beer brand uses such plastic-reduced packaging. It was developed by a century-old German company. In addition to beer cans, this plastic reduction packaging technology can also be applied to the packaging of PET mineral water rooms. In order to enable the entire industry to achieve the goal of plastic reduction, it will share the new technology with the industry.In this era of rising environmental awareness, plastic reduction is a trend in the food industry. The green transformation and positioning of major bottled water plants and breweries will be able to attract more consumers. Therefore, food manufacturers must think about how to use more environmental friendly products way of producing goods.In the application of plastic reduction in packaging, Tex Year has a record of cooperation with customers in recyclable glue. Welcome to inquire and make a contribution to the sustainable ecology together!

Hot Melt Adhesive - 318U, in Compliance with UL94 V-0 Flame Retardant
Hot Melt Adhesive - 318U, in Compliance with UL94 V-0 Flame Retardant Jun 21, 2022
Hot Melt Adhesive - 318U, in Compliance with UL94 V-0 Flame RetardantThe adhesives used in electronic appliances need to have heat resistance and flame retardant properties.The European Union also stipulates that the adhesives used in electrical products must pass the UL94 V-0 certificate before they can be sold in Europe. The RoHS Directive and REACH regulations also clearly stipulate that when used in electrical and electronic products, the raw material ingredients must meet their safety regulations before they are allowed to be used.Due to the above reasons, we have developed a hot melt glue stick for fixing electronic components. This product not only needs to meet the requirements of heat resistance and bonding strength, but also the ingredients must comply with RoHS and REACH regulations, and pass the UL94 V-0 level flame retardant test. 318U is an eco-friendly glue stick developed to meet these requirements.318U is a polyolefin flame retardant adhesive certified by UL94 V-0. It is applied to fix the electrical components on the motherboard. Generally, the flame retardants added to flame retardant adhesives are complex and the ingredients often contain substances that are harmful to the environment. These harmful substances include heavy metals and antimony trioxide banned by EU RoHS Substances of Very High Concern(SVHC) banned by EU REACH and some halogen components. Among the common flame retardants, halogen flame retardants have the best flame retardant effect. This is why most flame retardant adhesives often add flame retardants containing halogen components.However, with the growth of environmental awareness, a new generation of UL-certified flame retardant adhesive -318U has removed all these harmful substances and replaced them with environmental friendly phosphorus-based flame retardants. Besides, 318U greatly reduces the amount of flame retardant added and improves the bonding strength to various materials. Generally speaking, the amount of halogen flame retardants added is approximately 15% to 20%, such as 918A and 914W. The amount of phosphorus-based flame retardants is approximately 20% to 35%. But in 318U, the flame retardant proportion is lower than 10% and passed UL94 V-0 test. This shows that 318U is a major breakthrough for such applications.Fig.1 is a brief description form to show Tex Year UL grade adhesive status.We can detect 914W containing abundant quantity of heavy metal, Sb2O3, PBDE and halogen. These substances are harmful to the environment. 918A also contains these substances except PBDE. 318U is the only product in Tex Year without containing these harmful substances. Items914W918A318URoHS 2.0With lead(Pb) 5 ppmWith lead(Pb) 5 ppmNot detectedRoHS-Sb2O3containcontainNot detectedREACH SVHCWith PBDENot detectedNot detectedHalogen Free(Green peace)With Br and ClWith Br and ClNot detected(Fig.1 ) The above test items are all supported by test reports.  FeaturesBenefits1High heat resistance, high adhesion strengthEasy to apply to electrical applications2APAO basedGood electrical properties3Low densityLower glue consumption4Low flame retardant added amountReduce pipeline pollution and high bonding strength5Heavy metal free & Sb2O3 free & SVHC free & halogen freeTo satisfy future RoHS & REACH regulationsUL94 Rating ScaleHB: Slow burning on a horizontal specimen; burning rate < 76 mm/min for thickness < 3 mm or burning stops before 100 mm. V-2: Burning stops within 30 seconds on a vertical specimen; drips of particles allowed as long as they are no inflamed. V-1: Burning stops within 30 seconds on a vertical specimen; drips of particles allowed as long as they are not inflamed.V-0: Burning stops within 10 seconds on a vertical specimen; drips of particles allowed as long as they are not inflamed. 5VB: Burning stops within 60 seconds on a vertical specimen; no drips allowed; plaque specimens may develop a hole. 5VA: Burning stops within 60 seconds on a vertical specimen; no drips allowed; plaque specimens may not develop a hole. Adhesive chemists combine a number of additives to make fire retardant adhesives - and sometime even to quench flames (although this feature is harder to achieve nowadays with many goods manufacturers now requesting halogen-free formulations).It is a perfect balance as these additives will cause interference to other adhesive properties such as strength, rheology, cure speed, flexibility, etc.

Warm Aqueous Alkaline Removable Adhesive for Recycling and Labeling Promotes Recycling Efficiency!
Warm Aqueous Alkaline Removable Adhesive for Recycling and Labeling Promotes Recycling Efficiency! Apr 8, 2022
Warm Aqueous Alkaline Removable Adhesive for Recycling and Labeling Promotes Recycling Efficiency!Worldwide, 20,000 PET bottles are sold every second!Scientists estimate that by 2021, the number of PET bottles discarded by people will reach 500 billion each year, far exceeding the number that is recycled. Environmental groups say such data is devastating for the environment, because plastic pollution has affected every ecosystem, and more and more living things will be affected, rivaling climate change in severity.Less plastic bottles are recycled, and there will be more plastic in the ocean than fishWhere do the used PET bottles go?It is estimated from the recycled weight that Taiwan&#39;s PET bottles are used up to 4.7 billion per year. After deducting the amount of recycling, it is equal to 188 million PET bottles per year.Most of the bottlings actually end up in landfills, as well as our oceans. Around 5 million to 13 million tons of plastic enter the oceans every year, where it is eaten by seabirds, fish and other creatures.The distance between recycling and environmental protection may be farther than you thinkPlastic recycling needs to be shred, washed, melted and then remade to be successfully recycledPET bottles are generally accompanied by various labels and label glue for fixingIf the product label on the plastic bottle is not completely removed during cleaningThe efficiency of resource reuse will be reducedTherefore, the choice of glue for sticking labels is very critical at this time!![Sorting]→[Bundling]→[Shredding]→[Washing]→[Melting]→[Recycle] What can we do about PET bottle recycling/label recycling?The best way to promote more efficient recycling of PET bottles is to use warm aqueous alkaline removable adhesive instead of general labeling glues in the production process.As an adhesive expert, TexYear developed the warm aqueous alkaline removable adhesiveThe label can be effectively pasted without falling off. When washing, it only needs to pass the international standard for de-labeling of alkaline water.Warm aqueous alkaline removable adhesive, label glue that promotes recycling efficiency!Warm aqueous alkaline removable adhesive instead of general label glue has many benefitsFor producers, it can quickly increase the value of the productFor consumers, choosing to buy green plastic products can simply practice sustainable developmentLet&#39;s do our part for a sustainable ecology together!0:00 - Brief Introduction of Recycling 0:33 - Why Removing Labels Matters 0:54 - Tex Year Can Help1:19 - Warm Aqueous Alkaline Removable Adhesive2:15 - The Outcome of ExperimentsTexYear Group is committed to environmental protection management, and actively invests capital and human resource in research and development.

RFID Tags Exist Everywhere
RFID Tags Exist Everywhere Sep 1, 2021
Even though we have been stopped from taking overseas trips for a long time, we remember the experience of going abroad. Before boarding a plane, we have to go through the most time-consuming process, the check-in procedure. Some airport may have self check-in kiosks in place to enable passengers to check in and print luggage tags quickly. RFID tags are what we are going to talk about today.Adhesives for RFID tags What are RFID tags?RFID stands for Radio Frequency Identification, also known as electronic tags.An RFID system consists of a tag, a reader and an integrated middleware system. Radio frequency identification is a contactless automated identification technology which can automatically identify target objects and obtain relevant data through radio-frequency signals in any severe conditions without human intervention.The RFID technology is able to identify objects moving at high speed and multiple objects at the same time with rapid and convenient operation. Applications of RFID tagsMedical treatment, personal applications, traffic, entertainment, logistics, manufacturing, security, environment/other applications. Adhesives for bonding of RFID tags Hot-melt pressure sensitive adhesives are used during the process that RFID chips are manufactured into identification tags or fare cards. In the past, twin adhesive tapes were adopted and the cost was higher.The hot-melt pressure sensitive adhesives are gradually replacing the tapes in current product lines since such adhesives have excellent adhesion and adequate heat resistance and are applicable for the bonding of RFID tags to common plastic materials.7 features of hot-melt pressure sensitive adhesives for RFID tagsFeatureDescriptionHigh hardnessAfter being coating with the adhesives, plug-in or contact cards show higher levels of hardness.Long-time useDirect bonding after applying the adhesives without thermal activation during the manufacturing process.Outstanding adhesionExcellent adhesion to paper or PP materials.Good heat resistanceShear adhesion failure temperature (SAFT) is 76℃.High temperature and humidity resistanceOur hot-melt adhesives can still firmly bond a paper card and a RFID chip together after being tested under a high temperature and humidity condition for three days.Excellent water resistanceWithout detachment after paper cards are soaked for a day.Good low temperature resistanceWithout detachment of bonded paper cards under -40℃.Unique features of our hot-melt pressure sensitive adhesives for RFID tagsFeatureDescriptionAdvantagesWell-oil-tight paper base materialsPaper base materials do not have oil leakage problems after being strictly tested at 60℃ for 7 days.
