When you reach for an ice cold beer on a hot summer day, chances are you're not thinking about the glue that holds the label in place. But, to be perfectly honest, a lot goes into picking the right labeling glue for beer bottles.

If the right glue isn't used during the labeling process, you'll open a cooler full of naked bottles and floating labels.

If you are using a Krones Cold-glue Labeller for your beer bottle labeling, our HB Fuller product Swift®tak PWL5120 is a great match for you. This is an opaque, synthetic polymer based glue for use on a wide range of rotary labellers. key: it adheres to cold, wet bottles and offers ice-proof bonds.

Perfect for beer bottles!
