Solventless Lamination Benefits LTI Customers

Shorter production cycles. Faster curing times. Flexibility in substrates. Greater protection of contents. No volatile organic compounds. Lower costs.


As a leader in flexographic printing, LTI offers its customers these and more attractive benefits with the growing use of solventless lamination technology. This innovative technique involves bonding together various layers of packaging materials without the use of any solvents, thereby eliminating harmful emissions and reducing the risk of health hazards associated with solvent exposure.

For LTI customers, this is a significant advancement in packaging that provides a safer, more environmentally friendly alternative to traditional solvent-based lamination processes.

At its core, solventless lamination relies on the application of adhesives that cure through heat and pressure, creating strong bonds between substrates such as films, foils, and papers. The absence of solvents means there are no volatile organic compounds released into the atmosphere during the lamination process, making it a greener choice for LTI customers concerned about environmental sustainability and regulatory compliance.

One of the key advantages of solventless lamination technology is its ability to produce high-quality laminates with superior barrier properties. By eliminating solvents, the risk of delamination or solvent retention within the packaging structure is significantly reduced, ensuring that the final product maintains its integrity and protects the contents from external factors such as moisture, oxygen, and light.

Furthermore, solventless lamination offers enhanced flexibility and versatility in terms of material compatibility. Unlike solvent-based adhesives, which may be limited in their ability to bond certain substrates, solventless adhesives can effectively laminate a wide range of materials, including heat-sensitive films and lightweight papers, without compromising performance or aesthetics.

In addition to its environmental and functional benefits, solventless lamination technology also delivers cost savings and operational efficiencies for LTI customers. By eliminating the need for solvent recovery systems, ventilation equipment, and associated safety measures, companies can reduce capital investments and operating expenses while streamlining production processes and improving overall productivity.

Moreover, solventless lamination enables faster curing times and shorter production cycles compared to solvent-based alternatives, allowing you to meet tight deadlines and customer demands more effectively. This accelerated process also contributes to energy savings and reduces greenhouse gas emissions, further enhancing the sustainability credentials of solventless lamination technology.

From our customer’s perspective, products packaged using solventless lamination technology offer peace of mind knowing they are not exposed to potentially harmful chemical residues. Whether it’s food, pharmaceuticals, or other consumer goods, the safety and purity of the packaging material are paramount, and solventless lamination helps ensure that products are packaged securely and sustainably.

Looking ahead, solventless lamination technology is poised to continue its trajectory of growth and innovation as brands increasingly prioritize sustainability and regulatory compliance. With ongoing research and development efforts focused on enhancing adhesive performance, expanding material compatibility, and optimizing process efficiency, LTI customers will increase reliance on solventless lamination. It holds immense promise for revolutionizing the packaging industry and driving positive environmental impact for years to come.
