L.D. Davis launches a new product line. Our
Primo Adhesives for the rigid box and laminating industries. What we have found in the rigid box and laminating industries is that our customers have been having a hard time with some of their more difficult substrates. Substrates such as Mylar, foil, soft touch film laminations, etc. have historically been difficult to bond. It was our mission at L.D. Davis to manufacture an adhesive for this industry problem and we have found a solution. Our technical department has developed a
protein adhesive to improve adhesion to soft touch film laminations. Soft touch film laminations normally have a low surface dyne levels that can make it difficult to adhere the back of the film laminations to the face of the film laminations using a protein adhesive. For those challenging materials, our NW160 is a new modified protein adhesive that machines well and develops tack during application while improving the overall final bond. Along with film laminations, we have other versions of our Primo adhesives that will bond excellently with other difficult substrates as well. The two man issues we have seen from our customers is the bubbling of the finished product which  has caused much added stress because people would have to physically rub down the boxes to prevent this. L.D. Davis's Primo adhesives have reduced that. The other issue was pop-ups. We were finding that other adhesives were not adhering wrap-to-wrap. Our Primo adhesives have reduced that issue as well.
Advantages of new Primo Adhesives

  • Eco-friendly - biodegradable
  • Machines clean
  • Reduces bubbling on finished product
  • Quick tack during application

For those challenging materials, whether it's Mylar, Foil or recycled board that is giving you difficulties, we have a solution. Our new line of protein adhesives for the
rigid box industry and
laminating industry, machines clean and develops excellent tack during application while improving the overall final bond.
