lioFol® adhesives with smart cure technology because saFety matters! Smart Cure technology opens new opportunities to support your company's sustainable goals with Henkel's solventless laminating adhesives. Like all solventless systems, adhesives with Smart Cure technology promote a clean environment, improve operational safety, and require less energy, thereby reducing costs. But more than that, Smart Cure technology helps speed curing time. The result? Your laminates can comply with food safety regulations in just 2-3 days* instead of 10-15 with conventional adhesives! smart cure technology Promotes saFety and health Backed by Smart Cure technology, you can always be confident in the safety of the laminates you deliver to your customers. Liofol® solventless adhesives with Smart Cure designation are rapid-cure products that have been proven under the most rigorous testing conditions. At full cure within 2-3 days, they are free of primary aromatic amines (PAAs), complying with FDA regulations for adhesives.

the ProoF is in the PerFormance The challenge: A North American flexible packaging converter was concerned about the levels of PAAs that could be left behind in the laminates they produced. They wanted to ensure that the laminates were safe to use by packagers, especially when processing `'rush'' orders. They understood the importance of fully curing the laminating adhesives before food contact is allowed, because uncured adhesive could contaminate food being packaged. The solution: The converter switched from traditional solventless laminating adhesives to Liofol® brand Smart Cure technology. By switching to Smart Cure solventless adhesives, the converter achieved faster cures than with alternative fast-cure systems, enabling optimum safety and faster compliance with FDA food safety regulations. The results: Switching to Smart Cure technology helped the converter realize higher production speeds and increase throughput while reducing energy consumption and costs. Smart Cure technology cures faster and does so at ambient temperature. And, because Smart Cure adhesives could be used for multiple applications, the converter was able to improve production efficiency, offer shorter lead times, and reduce costly inventory levels.
