Adhesive manufacture Beardow Adams has partnered with Techlan – a producer of release liners – in an environmental initiative for the packaging industry.
Beardow Adams manufactures a wide range of products for the adhesives sector such as hot melts and water-based formulations. Most recently, the company has introduced a vegan grade and high bio-based content options for its customers.
Techlan Ltd manufactures silicone release papers in both rolls and sheets from its production facility in Swansea, Wales. The release liners – named Re-Liners – are made from 100% recycled material and are said to be the first of their kind.
Both family-owned businesses, Beardow Adams and Techlan have the joint goal of wanting to create products that further support a sustainable future. The companies – which both operate on a global scale – have partnered to offer the packaging sector 100% recycled release liners paired with high bio-based content adhesives.
Of the new partnership, Mark Thompson, Managing Director at Techlan, said:
“As the world strives toward a more circular economy, the use of products that reduce environmental impact is paramount. It is great to be partnering together with a like-minded innovative company as Beardow Adams, that share the same vision of delivering cost effective sustainable solutions to its customers.”
Techlan’s release liners have been tested and certified for use with Beardow Adams’ adhesives. The combined product is said to offer a clean release and destructive bond without staining and is suitable for numerous applications in the increasingly expanding flexible packaging and e-commerce sector.
Eric Coveney, Beardow Adams’ Head of Marketing, added:
“We are incredibly proud to be partnering with Teclan on this eco-conscious project. Building symbiotic relationships with like-minded companies on these green agendas, really does build towards a better, greener future for all of us.”
