Cold seal applications

« Back to Glossary Index

Cold seal adhesive applications are used to seal the edges of packaging made from a wide range of different substrates such as paper and polypropylene PP or polyethylene PE films.In pressure-activated systems, no heating is required to obtain the seal: two cold seal coated sides must be pressed together. Cold seals are typically sealed within a temperature range of 15 to 25 °C, and the absence of heat makes them ideal for packaging temperature-sensitive foodstuff such as ice cream, chocolate or biscuits. Cold seals typically contain a blend of natural rubber latex and acrylic dispersions.
