If you’re in the food packaging industry, chances are you spend a lot of time thinking about how to satisfy your customers while also trying to comply with food safety standards and avoid costly product recalls. It’s easy to see how juggling all of these needs can cause potential issues like those highlighted in a recent Food Safety Magazine article (“The Top 3 Pitfalls in the Packaging Design Process”).

Interestingly enough, overlooking adhesives makes the list, alongside failure to consider shipping stresses and product and packaging chemistry issues.  As an adhesive distributor and manufacturer, we understand that adhesives can be a small, yet integral part of your packaging design process.

At RS Industrial, we make sure you get the best adhesive for your specific food packaging application, leaving little to no room for mistakes that can increase your costs. We’re here to handle your adhesive process so you don’t have to.

There are many variables our “Glue Guides” look at during adhesive selection, such as your product, existing machinery, substrates, end use requirements, cost and plant conditions. Our team of technical analysts and chemists can test all of these factors on-site at your facility as well as in our internal lab. This way, you can actually see how the adhesive performs on your product and packaging materials.

We offer you the peace of mind that allows you to focus on other important details in the food packaging process. To learn more about how we can help you get the right adhesive and increase your ROI, contact us at 1-800-844-1740 or info@rsindustrial.com. Our goal is to help make our customers’ processes easier, including those in the food packaging industry.
