Shelf Ready Packaging Case Study

The technical staff at Pafra are known for their ability to create bespoke formulations for clients that are specifically tailored to exact requirements. As we have a vast library of pre-formulated adhesive solutions, we are often able to recommend a product we have already created. This was true of our work with a large UK-based corrugated converter.

The customer manufactures ‘four corner trays’ for the food industry and was looking to improve manufacturing efficiencies and expand their product portfolio. However, they were constrained as the trays were springing open after the compression section at line speeds in excess of 11,000 trays per hour.

After taking a detailed brief, we were able to recommend one of our existing premium carton converting products, AquaPAL® 9693. We chose this adhesive as it consistently performed well, but could also bond a wide range of paper based materials and is resistant to high and low temperature conditions.

AquaPAL® 9693 was a great success for the customer as it enabled them to double line speeds from 11,000 to over 22,000 trays an hour. As a result, they have also been able to broaden their product range to include trays for baking in the oven and products that can be frozen, then baked at home.
