Bostik, a leading global adhesive specialist for industrial, construction and consumer markets, has launched HERBERTS LF686/H186, a high performance solvent-free adhesive, for the China market.


Bostik HERBERTS LF686/H186 was developed specifically for flexible packaging, and it can be applied primarily on packaging with aluminium foil, PET/VMPET and aluminium plate. Such packaging can be seen in market segments such as food and beverage, Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) and pharmaceuticals.


With a wide range of applications, HERBERTS LF686/H186 promotes good wettability, which means there will not be appearance of bubbles on the PET/AL or PET/VMPET films. The solvent-free adhesive can also withstand heat from reheating, boiling, or retorting of packaging with aluminium foil structures. Its other properties include excellent chemical resistance and composite process stability.



HERBERTS LF686/H186 is the ideal solution for flexible packaging with no solvent retention, one that has a good appearance with fast lamination speed, excellent bonding strength and heat resistance.


“The solvent-free laminating adhesives market size is projected to reach multimillion USD by 2028, and there is no better time than now to showcase our capabilities with the launch of HERBERTS LF686/H186. This solvent-free adhesive is a result of over a year’s worth of effort by our strong Research & Development (R&D) team to find the perfect composition that will address challenges faced by customers. We are excited to introduce the product here in China, and look forward to showing how it can meet the strict packaging requirements in some of our key markets locally,” said Jane Sun, Director of Advanced Packaging and Converting BU, Asia Pacific, Bostik.


This new product can be explored at Bostik’s Customer’s Day on April 19, 2023, which will be held in conjunction with Chinaplas 2023 at Hilton Shenzhen World Exhibition & Convention Center.
