Rohm and Haas USA has inaugurated a commercial scale Schiavi-Bobst Combi Laminator at its new Adhesives and Sealants Technical Centre in Taloja, India. Expected to enhance the company’s capabilities for technical service and product development support for customers throughout the region significantly, the new centre is located on the site of its main adhesives manufacturing facility in Asia. Opened in August 2003, the Taloja plant produces polyurethane, polyester, and water based adhesive formulations for flexible packaging applications; acrylic emulsions for pressure sensitive adhesives; and a range of water based latex emulsion polymers for use in paints and coatings, and for construction, leather, textile and non woven applications. Total annual plant capacity is 35,000t.
The Combi Coater is dedicated to supporting trials and product development efforts of packaging and converting customers, end users, and co-suppliers in India and throughout Asia. It provides accurate simulation of industrial conditions for testing and evaluation and is equipped to coat solventless and dry laminating adhesives, including Rohm and Haas’s new generation water based adhesives. At the opening ceremony, Robond L90D water based adhesive was successfully run at a speed of over 250m/min.
Each of Rohm and Haas’ four technical centres in Asia is equipped with lab-scale coaters that allow quick and representative evaluation of
adhesives prior to testing on commercial machines. The other centres in Asia are located in China, Singapore, and Australia.
