Resins Good for the Earth
Dacrex and Ultra-Guard resins provide high water resistance and low formaldehyde levels for environmentally responsible corrugating applications. Both are thermosetting resins that crosslink corrugating starch-based adhesives to develop varying levels of water resistance. Both are compatible with all starches, company says, and do not shock the adhesive system upon addition or use. They contain a red color indicator for proof that water resistance has been achieved.

Specialty Gluer Has 12 Positions
On the 12-position specialty gluer with counter/ejector, the bottom sheets are fed from a table at the front of the machine into the gluing transfer section, where glue is applied to specified locations for the 12 die-cut circle pads to be applied simultaneously. Sheets then proceed through a compression section to the PLC-controlled stacker, where they are automatically stacked and ejected in bundles without interrupting production.
