H.B. Fuller Company Introduces Sesame Dry End Technology

H.B. Fuller Company has introduced Sesame dry end technology, the company's latest addition to its innovative line of packaging solutions for corrugated boxes. Sesame dry end products offer all the benefits of H.B. Fuller's traditional Sesame tape products with the added benefit of running on the dry end of a corrugator. H.B. Fuller's Sesame dry end tapes combine fiber technology with hot melt adhesives to deliver a strong and durable packaging solution. With the new technology, corrugated manufacturers can get the superior bond and super-clean opening typical of wet-end applications. Applying the tape on the dry end offers additional benefits, such as greater efficiency and tape control. Quick and easy set-ups and roll-to-roll splicing lead to minimized down time and waste. Corrugated packaging plays an important role in protecting products through the supply chain, and more and more companies are looking for continued brand representation on the shelf. Sesame dry end tape technology provides clear advantages in supply chain integrity. Its reliability and performance has been established through testing that demonstrates it provides better adhesion to the package and better tensile strength than traditional PSA products.
