Adhesives Part 2

Adhesives: types and applications. Part 2

After getting to know more about adhesives – their origins, types and application areas, we demonstrated that hardly any product surrounding us does not contain at least one adhesive – be it the label on a beverage bottle, protective coatings on automobiles, or profiles on window frames.

In this Blog article we would like to cover in more details the application areas of adhesives as well as the industries where they are used the most. You will also find out how the Gravic Group supports those industries with high quality adhesives.


Our adhesives have been modernized and developed for years to provide the highest quality to our clients. We constantly work on the research and investigate new ways to become more environmentally safe.

At Gravic Group we produce different types of adhesives for those major industries:

Packaging adhesives

Packaging is one of the largest markets for industrial adhesives. Anything you can purchase from groceries to car parts comes in some form of packaging. Depending on the products, different types of adhesives are manufactured to achieve the most effective use.

The main materials used for packaging are: Plastic, Paper, Foam and Aluminum. Both Plastic types, low-density and high density are used in packaging – from trash bags or shop bags to cosmetics bottles.
In terms of Paper packaging – boxes, boxboard or paperboards, paper bags are a daily occurrence in our lives. Labels and Seals for cartons are produced using a solvent based adhesives.
Foams can be found in products that need protection, for example when you order glass product or electronics, they usually come wrapped in a layer of foam.
Aluminum packaging is widely used within the food industry, for beverage cans for example. They can also be found on medication packaging and in the automotive industry.

Here are additional examples of the adhesives we produce on a daily basis for Packaging: carton-side seam and closures, composite bonding of disposable products, bags, labels, cups, speciality packages (cosmetics, toiletries), composite containers and tubes.

Industry and construction

Construction is one of the largest markets for adhesives as they are able to bond large surfaces and thick joints.

  • Plastics
  • Plasterboard panels
  • Insulation foams
  • Wood-based panels (particle board), and
  • Many new synthetic raw materials for decoration
