Take the next step with us! Productivity needs to be pursued to the end. High efficiency and a permanent superior quality can only be achieved with perfectly adapted processes. Therefore, Jowat supports the entire value chain of customers in the packaging industry. We supply innovative adhesive solutions for perfect results in End-of-Line processes. Due to high yield and clean processing, they already facilitate reliable bonds with low application amounts and minimise maintenance and downtimes.
This saves resources in your bonding process. In addition, special hot melt adhesives from Jowat make recyclable bonds possible.
Low processing temperatures reduce your energy consumption, and the Jowatherm® GROW range of bio-based hot melts facilitates environmentally sound bonding.
Coupled with our products, we will also support you with a comprehensive service in line with your needs. Whether demanding food contact requirements, ambitious sustainability goals, or “only” greater process efficiency – we will help you meet your individual objectives. From the first advisory service, to the joint implementation and application of the adhesive, and to quality assurance in the manufacturing process.
Jowatherm® GROW marks a milestone in the development of hot melt adhesives based on renewable raw materials. Never before have cleaner and more efficient Jowat® products with such a high bio-based content been available. The modern hot melt adhesives save resources, not only due to the formulations with biological components, and facilitate recyclable bonds according to the German packaging law.
Jowatherm® GROW is USDA certified Biobased, and exceeds the minimum USDA certified Biobased content for adhesive.
Food safety plays an major role in packaging processes. About every second packaging manufactured around the globe comes into contact with food. Compliance with food contact regulations also depends on the adhesive. Jowat provides optimum solutions consisting of tailor-made hot melt adhesives and a competent advisory service to meet the high requirements.
Since the enterprise’s early years, food safety has always been a key priority in the development of Jowat adhesives. From choosing raw materials, to meeting regulatory guidelines and supporting customers in matters related to food contact regulations. Many hot melt adhesives from the Jowat-Toptherm® and Jowatherm® series are approved for food packaging according to strict legal requirements.
The powerful adhesives have been established in demanding packaging processes around the world for many years due to characteristics which are adapted optimally to these applications – short setting times, a sharp cut-off, high yield, and clean processing. To achieve odourless adhesives, Jowat uses only raw materials of superior quality in the formulation of special hot melt adhesives, which are used for instance to wrap sweets or chocolate. To support processors in their compliance effort, the adhesives specialist also provides results from MOSH/MOAH tests and NIAS analyses in which the adhesive has been tested for non-intentionally added substances.
Jowat as partner
Bonding is the most efficient assembly method and therefore a global growth market. The Jowat Group as medium-sized, family-owned enterprise is one of the top adhesive manufacturers around the world.
Tradition and experience from almost 100 years of corporate development allow us to act as leading company in technologies and innovations, in numerous markets and application areas. This ranking as innovative leader is made possible by the commitment and competence of our employees, the adhesive experts who always find the perfect solution for our customers.
Adhesives for industrial applications cannot be purchased off the shelf. They are based on a deep understanding of the application, attention to the detail in the development of the suitable formulation and highest demands for durability of the end product. Our complete service provides real added value to our customers.
From the first advisory, to the joint implementation and application of the adhesive, and to the quality assurance in the manufacturing process. Our adhesives and our support service are both tailor-made. Because we are convinced that this is the only way to create sustainable bonds. Whether human or technological, today and in the future.
