In conversation with Vikas Kulkarni, Managing Director, Bostik India, Food Marketing and Technology Magazine asked him questions regarding Bostik’s adhesive solutions and his learnings from the Covid-19 disruption. He talked about excellent foodgrade products and their applications.

1 WHAT IS BOSTIK FOOD TOUCH H18? COULD YOU ELABORATE FOR OUR READERS?

Bostik Food Touch H18 is a series of hot melt pressure sensitive adhesives suitable for direct food contact labels. It offers a wide application temperature range and can be applied to many types of surfaces, such as velum, cast gloss, thermal paper or other designs for green public procurement (GPP) labels.

As food labels convey important consumer information, the adhesive used must help ensure that the labels can properly and safely stick on the products. This means that they must offer good resistance to fruit essence and leave no residue when removed from the fruit or vegetable – a basic but key consumer requirement that needs to be met.

Food Touch H18 has well-balanced initial tack, peel and shear performance and performs well in low to semi-freeze temperature. Like all Bostik label adhesives, it possesses excellent die-cut, matrix stripping abilities and is formulated for minimal to no haloing and curling.

2 WHAT ARE THE IMPORTANT ASPECTS TO BE CONSIDERED, FOR ADDITIVES IN FOOD CONTACT MATERIALS?

Each country has its own set of legislation and requirements for food safety. Food and beverage (F&B) manufacturers should comply with all applicable laws, regulations and directives, by continuously reviewing the composite formulations to determine compliance, and ensuring that each authorisation should comprise of three parts: the identity of the substance, specifications including purity or physical properties, and limitations on the conditions of use.

As a food contact materials manufacturer, Bostik works closely with industry partners and customers to exchange information on new updates on food safety requirements and partner with them to develop food labels that are safe to stick on the food we consume.
