Rigid boxes, such as cell phone boxes, perfume boxes or other solid form cartons are made by laminating a variety of different substrates to a solid chipboard material. The substrates can be paper, leather, foil, fabric, and many others.

The glue used to make rigid set-up boxes needs to be able to adhere a wide variety of materials to the board, which is why the rigid box industry turns to LD Davis animal glue, also known as protein glue or hide glue, to get the job done the right way.

 Glue Equipment

The Emmeci machine is the equipment standard in the rigid box industry, although there are other types of equipment used in some cases. The Emmeci lamination machine works excellently with LD Davis animal glue to laminate substrates to chip board to begin rigid box construction.

We have a variety of glue formulas designed for different substrates, equipment speeds etc. 

Eco-Friendly Rigid Box Glue

Not only does our glue successfully laminate almost any kind of wrap material to the chipboard to make boxes, animal glue is also totally recyclable, eco-friendly, and biodegradable. It forms an excellent bond and also makes the box recyclable once it no longer needs to be used.

Ecofriendly packaging is a MUST in todays world. 

Glue Troubleshooting

Our rigid set-up box customers also have our full-service adhesive lab at their disposal, with scientists that formulate custom animal glue products every single day.

If your team is running into any sort of adhesion issue, our lab can provide a solution through a custom animal glue formulation.
