Henkel To Introduce Corrugating Additives At 2021 SuperCorrExpo As the industry emerges from the restrictions of the pan- demic, SuperCorrExpo, to held in Orlando, Florida, from August 9-12, will be one of the first major in-person events for the corrugated packaging-focused industry. Henkel will be presenting its latest innovations for the safe, efficient and sustainable production of paper and board products. The expo is the ideal forum for Henkel to launch its new Aquence Halo product family – solutions that replace stan- dard powdered borax to improve safety and efficiency in corrugating starch operations. As a manufacturer of adhe- sives and coatings, Henkel will also be showcasing its Ve- locity resins, and high-performance aeration technologies. “We are truly thrilled to be safely back at SuperCorr,” said Gary Rzonca, Vice President, Packaging Adhesives North America. “We are looking forward to discussing our latest innovations and technologies and to seeing our partners in person again.” Henkel’s new Halo product line provides an answer to the challenges inherent in powdered borax additives re- quired for corrugating. Using powdered borax is not only labor intensive, but also an operator safety concern – with risks including the inhalation of borax dust and lifting of heavy bags to load hoppers – and prone to dispensing inaccuracies. The Aquence Halo product line of corrugating addi- tives offers a viable alternative to standard powdered bo- rax, with some products including a rheology modifier to reduce starch consumption. Halo line increases worker safety while reducing down- time on corrugated production lines, which improves pro- ductivity and reduces cost. It also provides the benefits of: • Operator safety – no lifting, cutting bags, climbing to load hoppers, inhalation of borax dust, or slip hazards from powder spills • Dosing accuracy – consistent viscosity and gel point assures starch placement • Clean machining – reduced slinging so there’s less clean up: the starch goes on the flute tip and not on the machine, floor, etc. • Production efficiency – less monitoring and downtime gives operators time to complete more value-added tasks Henkel’s aeration technology has been used success- fully for more than two decades on six continents. Aerated adhesives typically deliver between 10-30 percent adhe- sive reduction, with higher reductions possible. Henkel’s exclusive technology and aeration units are continually improving, and Henkel will showcase its next generation solutions at SuperCorr Expo. Henkel will also present a portfolio of high-performance additives designed to help corrugators achieve optimal performance characteristics and smooth, efficient operations.
