Called VELOCITY® XR7 additive, this product has enabled users to experience improved bond quality, reduced application levels and less warp in their board. When asked how the company could bring such a product to market, Craig Leake, market development manager, National Adhesives, said, "National is the only corrugating adhesive ingredient supplier with both natural and synthetic polymer chemistry expertise. Our technical experts understand how to get the most from starch-based adhesives."
