Corrugated board is a natural product that consists predominantly of domestically-sourced, renewable raw materials. It is 100 per cent recyclable and can be recycled up to 20 times. The use of starch-based, high-performance adhesives is what makes recycling possible in the first place. If synthetic adhesives were to be used instead, then paper and corrugated board would no longer be recyclable. This, in turn, would have serious consequences regarding ecological aspects, as well as the decomposition of valuable materials and the CO2 balance.
C&D Corrugating & Paper high performance adhesives, made from wheat starch, bond the paper layers quickly, securely and firmly. Thanks to their optimum composition, less adhesive is used during gluing, while still fully exploiting the performance of the corrugated plant. The starch-based, high-performance adhesives optimise energy use, in addition to creating less waste.
