Environmental news and technical  innovation in the nonwovens sector

DÜSSELDORF - Adhesive specialist Henkel, a major supplier to the hygiene sector, has agreed a multi-year supply agreement with Kraton Corporation, the manufacturer of biobased products derived from pine wood pulping.

Under the terms of the deal, Kraton will supply Henkel Adhesive Technologies with high-performance, biobased tackifiers and its patented REvolution rosin ester technology. The use of biobased products as an alternative to fossil-fuel based options is expected to provide carbon emission reductions in a range of Henkel’s adhesive formulations.

“Partnerships with strategic suppliers like Kraton are a key factor in driving sustainable innovations and generating value for our customers,” said Pernille Lind Olsen, head of Henkel’s Global Packaging and Consumer Goods Division. “Kraton has demonstrated strong commitment to supporting Henkel in our ongoing transformation to increase our packaging and consumer goods product portfolio’s sustainability performance and will help our packaging and consumer goods customers meet their own sustainability commitments and satisfy consumer demand.”

Hot melt adhesives are used in a variety of industries and applications from hygiene and packaging to electronics and automotive. The integration of REvolution, a scalable, next-generation technology for biobased tackifiers, into Henkel’s Technomelt hot melt adhesive portfolio is designed to lower environmental impact while maintaining the same high-quality solutions the market expects from Henkel.

“Collaborating with Henkel strengthens our commitment to creating a sustainable future," added Minco van Breevoort, Kraton Pine Chemicals president. "We take pride in partnering with Henkel who also shares our dedication to sustainability, innovation, and excellence. Together, we're advancing environmental stewardship and the use of renewable resources in the market.”
