At Almetac we have for years developed both cold and hot melt adhesives that ensure that bottles can be returned, washed and recycled.Read more
The boxes are opened and when we check both surfaces, we find that the hot melt adhesive has penetrated, however, the adhesion has not been sufficient, and the flaps remain open.Read more
No sólo el adhesivo afecta en el lavado de las etiquetas, hay otras variables que intervienen como el tipo de papel y su fabricación, los métodos de impresión, el barniz de las etiquetas o la película plástica.
What makes the real difference between a conventional service and the one we offer you at Almetac can be summed up in a single concept that is part of our DNA: commitment.
The bottles arrive at the boxer or warehouse with the labels broken.
The origin of the problem
The problem may be caused by one of the following variables not being adequate :
The characteristics of the paper in terms of absorption capacity and wet strength are fundamental parameters.
Additionally, the initial tack of the adhesive and its evolution in the wet are also decisive.Read more
During the bottle washing process there is an uncomfortable foam formation.

Glass bottles in untreated virgin state generate friction with each other during transport (glass factory-bottling site-market), resulting in a scratched appearance of the bottle not accepted by the market.
The adhesive to be used must always have a surface tension lower than the bottle.
When collars and labels fall, the Surface Tension of the bottle should be studied and the adhesive adapted to that batch of bottles.Read more
Deterioration of the glue observing considerable thickening and foamy appearance, which can have an impact on the properties of the glue and therefore on labeling conditions. This problem forces you to remove unconsumed glue cubes.Read more
Appearance of spider webs around the elements of the labeling machine.
This effect is cumbersome and has an impact on the cleaning and maintenance of the labeling machine, in addition to generate lot of expectation because it is something that usually appears spontaneously and not continuously.Read more
