Cardboard sleeves are used for various applications, such as in the paper, textile, plastic and construction industries and have to meet the most diverse requirements. The products from the Emdex® and Emcol® series can be used for all types of spiral sleeves, parallel sleeves or conical sleeves, among other things.
For these versatile applications, our dextrins provide the best possible strength and flexibility, since they achieve high degrees of dynamic strength and fracture resistance as well as dimensional stability. Our Emdex® types are available in different viscosities for different solid contents for adhesives. These are also used as finished products as part of our Emdex® RT series.
