Why should you view this course?

Formulators are undergoing growing pressure to switch from SB to WB sealing adhesives, but also to offer higher and higher temperature and moisture resistance. Moreover they are asked to meet stringer requirements to stay competitive: faster drying, very quick sealing, lower sealing temperature... Do you recognize your challenges here? Join this course! You will:


  1. Stay in the game by learning about the best formulation options to meet new & upcoming must-have requirements
  2. Identify opportunities for new products, alternative adhesives and sustainable practices by reviewing state-of-the-art on heat and cold seal adhesives
  3. Get advice on your own technical challenges by interacting live with our expert Edward Petrie ( >35 year experience)
