Bostik unveils two new tape and label adhesives in India

Bostik, a leading global adhesive specialist for industrial, construction and consumer markets, has launched two new innovative products for the tape and label market in India.


The first is Bostik HM2060, a single solution for high-speed label converting in the Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG), pharmaceutical and logistics industries. As India’s manufacturing scene continues to grow, there is an urgent need to increase label production productivity to cope with the surge in volumes of consumer and commercial goods. Bostik HM2060 assumes the dual role of a Hot Melt Pressure Sensitive Adhesive (HMPSA) and label, making it the ideal solution for labels that need to endure high converting speed of above 100 metres per minute, resolving any obstacles from conversion speed limitations.

In the adhesive coating process of Bostik HM2060, only a lower operating temperature is required. This enables it to consume significantly less energy, aiding in easier maintenance of converting machines. Compared to regular HMPSAs, Bostik HM2060 offers improved oil and solvent resistance and better adhesion on low surface energy (LSE) substrates.


Bostik’s second cutting-edge solution is Bostik HM2070, a tape adhesive developed to address increasing demand for sustainable packaging in India’s e-commerce industry, which is expected to reach $ 350 billion by 2030. Concurrently, the Indian government has implemented a ban on single-use plastic or plastics with PE films that are of less than 75 microns. In an industry where disposable plastics are frequently used, e-commerce sellers today are in greater need of environmentally friendly packaging alternatives.

The Bostik HM2070 was specifically developed for kraft paper-based bags and thicker PE-based bags with films up to 120 microns. It is a hot melt tape adhesive that can be applied to kraft paper applications that hold a tear index of up to 15mNm2/g. The solution ensures tamper-evident sealing and utilises 20% less adhesive material than traditional HMPSAs, enabling manufacturers to produce kraft bags that are both sustainable and functionable, which then provides sellers with environmentally friendly solutions for their packaging needs.

“We’re pleased to launch these two adhesive solutions to support the thriving tape and label industry in India. With over 20 years of local presence, including a strong Research & Development (R&D) team, we are well-aware of the transformations happening in the industry and the ever evolving manufacturing and supply needs of our customers. Producing innovative products is what we constantly strive to achieve, and this could not have been possible without our R&D team that work tirelessly to develop new ways to address customers’ challenges,” said Vikas Kulkarni, Managing Director of Bostik India.

Bostik - a subsidiary of the Arkema Group and a global player in speciality adhesives for the construction, consumer and industrial markets - develops innovative and multifunctional sealing and bonding solutions that have been shaping our daily lives for over 130 years. With an annual sale of € 2.1 billion in 2019, a presence in more than 40 countries, and 6,000 employees, the company is committed to meeting the major ecological, energy and technological challenges through its innovations.
