HERMA low-migration

Are you aware of adhesive migration?

The labels relevant EU-Regulation 10/2011 has tightened the test for migration again once more. Always be sure that the adhesive used by you meets these requirements.

When is low-migration standard for you?

The problem:

Conventional plastic films often do not have sufficient barrier properties. Thus it is necessary to use special packaging, which is expensive and hard to use.

The solution:

Low-migration adhesives from HERMA are an ideal means of reducing risks and costs. Moreover, as standard adhesives they have outstanding processing and adhesive properties.

Almost all of our standard adhesives are now certified for direct contact with foodstuffs, even with fatty surfaces. Thus we are able to supply a suitable adhesive for almost any application.
