Intercol is an independently operating organization and was founded in 1972. The company has developed into a leading company in the industrial adhesives market.
Intercol is a manufacturer of "tailor-made" adhesives based on formulas developed in-house. Only the best raw materials with high quality properties are used. It is of the utmost importance that the development and application of adhesives are closely coordinated because:
- The bonded product must meet the highest quality requirements
- The adhesive must be applied and processed without any problems. The co-production is our starting point.
That is why Intercol has a team of knowledgeable employees who are familiar with the latest developments in this area. The sales consultants closely monitor the rapidly changing market in order to be able to react adequately at any time. In addition, there is a constant exchange of knowledge with the raw material suppliers, the manufacturers of application devices and the materials to be bonded.
Polyvinyl acetate (PVAc) adhesives
Homopolymer adhesives at Intercol are typically water-based polyvinyl acetate (PVAc). It also occurs in powder and / or granules.
The main uses of homopolymers are wood applications and paper / board adhesives, which do not require a higher quality copolymer. The standard white glue for household use is often a homopolymer as well.
Vinyl acetate-ethylene copolymers (VAE)
Vinyl acetate-ethylene (VAE) copolymers are formed by the copolymerization of vinyl acetate and ethylene. VAE are water-based emulsions. VAE offers unique moisture resistance, flexibility, improved tack and adhesion at low temperatures and in wet conditions. They adhere well to non-porous surfaces such as vinyl, aluminum, etc. VAE copolymers are used in packaging adhesives and laminating applications.
Water-based adhesives for folding box applications
Adhesives play an important role in the construction of folding boxes. The quality of the end product depends on the influence of the adhesive in its interaction with the cardboard quality, the surface quality and the printing color. The adhesive products and application systems from Intercol'sadive guarantee reliable bonding on all types of surfaces. The efficiency of the machines is one of our most important sales arguments. We offer a full range of water-based and hot-melt adhesives that are compatible with most corrugated substrates, enabling higher line speeds, improved carton quality and a lower total cost of use. In particular, microstops, nozzle blockages, adhesive satellites, spitting and spraying are reduced by our special range of high-pressure adhesives.
