New solutions for excellent results in digital printing for flexible laminates 

Düsseldorf – Individualization and personalization of packaging is a progressive trend with a strong impact also on flexible laminate solutions. This development brings with it an increased industry interest in digital printing technologies: They are ideal for individually designed packages and smaller job sizes.

As part of the new, leaner branding concept adopted by Henkel for its industrial adhesives business, the timber construction adhesives previously known as Purbond are to be marketed under the LOCTITE brand.
