Published on 2012-08-01. Author : SpecialChem

CLEVELAND -- The Lubrizol Corporation announces the launch of its new BlisterBond™ Pro advanced heat seal coating designed specifically for carded blister pack applications. Compatible with rPET, APET, PVC and other common blister types, BlisterBond Pro's novel aqueous chemistry outperforms solvent-based and aqueous polyurethane dispersion industry benchmarks.

BlisterBond Pro delivers superior performance and application flexibility, is applicable for use in a wide range of bonding temperatures and humidity conditions, and can be used wherever strong seals at low temperatures are required. BlisterBond Pro offers significant, performance-oriented benefits including:

  • Maximized compatibility with various blister types, especially rPET
  • Maximized adhesion strength
  • Enhanced blocking resistance
  • Enhanced "fill and seal" printing process throughput
  • Lower VOCs than traditional solvent-based formulations
  • Minimized variations in production due to humidity and temperature

BlisterBond Pro offers the global consumer packaged goods (CPG) market a strong, efficient and versatile alternative to existing technologies. According to Matt Timmons, Global Business Manager for Lubrizol Performance Coatings, "Lubrizol's market leading expertise and polymer technology have enabled us to develop packaging coating technology specifically designed to meet the demands of carded blister converters and CPG companies for improved performance and lower in-line processing costs without the VOC challenges of a solvent-based coating," Timmons says. "When production calls for consistent strength - even in low temperatures or low humidity - BlisterBond Pro is the solution."
