BRIDGEWATER, NJ, June 12, 2008 - National Adhesives (www.nationaladh.com) has introduced the FIBRECYCLE K.E.G.(TM) (Keep Earth Green) Packaging Solution, a 100% recyclable drum for the company's PUR-FECT-LOK(TM) line of panel laminating adhesives.
The FIBRECYCLE K.E.G. packaging solution is a new fiber drum packaging alternative to conventional steel adhesives storage drums that enables manufacturers to recycle 100% of their used drums, reduce waste, receive up to 12% more product per drum, reduce handling, maximize storage space, reduce drum changes and improve operations with easier handling.
Because they are made of light-weight fiber, the drums can be easily moved once empty, energy costs are reduced as the fiber drum insulates the heated adhesive, and the drums can be recycled for additional cash flow. Employee safety is also increased, as fiber drums don't conduct heat to surfaces, reducing the risk of contact burns.
Manufacturers who choose the FIBRECYCLE K.E.G. Packaging Solution can make a real environmental difference while improving productivity and quality and reducing waste. More information about reducing the environmental impact and optimizing panel laminating operations is available at 1-800-797-4992.
