Case & cardboard manufacturing

Following the market trends and the specific needs of customers, Mitol provides you a range of adhesives for transport and for folding boxes. We take care of safe adhesives solutions for food packaging, personal care, pharmaceutical, cosmetics and other industries.

Following the market trends and specific needs of customers, Mitol provides a wide range of solutions in relation to adhesives’ parameters.

For gluing transport and semi transport boxes of all sizes, thicknesses and stiffnesses, we recommend PVAC based adhesives because of a good and quick penetration to papers and cartons and price acceptability.

For folding cardboard boxes used in food, personal care, pharmaceutical, cosmetics and other industries, our EVA-copolymer based glues are widely used because they are fast setting and have good adhesion to diverse coated, printed, lacquered materials.

The specific rheology allows dispersion adhesives to be applied by nozzle, disc, roller and blade and to perform a good bond on all types of papers: printed, non-printed, lacquered and non-lacquered, plasticized, laminated, etc.

Safe food packaging is an important segment and guide for the development of our new adhesives. Mitol food packaging adhesives meet the American FDA regulation 175.105 and the EU regulation 10/2011.
