Designed for recycling – Henkel‘s RE Range of adhesives & coatings
Henkel RE adhesives and coatings are designed particularly with recycling in mind, as they are able to effectively bond multiple compatible layers and have excellent mechanical recycling properties. This material compatibility is central to achieve the optimal result in the mechanical recycling process. The Henkel RE range can even be used in a closed loop recycling process for flexible packaging. But don’t take our word for it: Meet Pauli the Pouch for the whole story.
What do adhesives have to do with recycling?
Amazing but true: The adhesives used in packaging typically make up no more than five percent of the total weight – yet, their properties can make the difference when it comes to the overall recyclability of the material. This is why we work with partners across the entire value chain, innovating sustainable solutions that will ensure packaging can be easily and efficiently recycled – so that the valuable materials can be used again and again.
Our approach to sustainability
The stakes and expectations for packaging are high, and in order to fulfill all of these, their design can be complex. Does that mean functionality and sustainability are mutually exclusive? Tilo Quink, Global Head of Henkel Packaging Adhesives, says absolutely not!

REthink everything for a circular economy
In order to enable a true circular economy, we cannot continue to do everything as we have done in the past. Because real and sustainable revolutions need change – and circular economy plays a central role. That‘s why we develop adhesives and coatings solutions with recyclability in mind – from the very beginning.
