Adhesives for Safe Packaging Processes


How to adhesive cardboard with foam for packaging?

What is the best solution for gluing industrial packaging?

The objective of an industrial packaging is to protect products from handling and transportation to the final consumer, regardless of their shape or size. Supply chains and quality requirements can be demanding, so packaging must ensure that its products arrive at their destination in perfect condition.

At Grupo Solder we have adhesive solutions for the manufacture of cardboard packaging, plastic packaging and packaging constructed with: Polystyrene Foam, Polypropylene foam, Polyurethane Foam, Non Woven etc.

Dunnage is a very common term used in automotive and industrial packaging, it refers to the elements that fill a physical space with the specific function of securing the object to be transported, must cushion and maintain the position of the object to avoid possible damage during handling and transfer.

This type of packaging consists of using containers with divisions, which, allow the proper handling and transport of the pieces inside, soft materials are used that cushion and do not damage the product during handling.

Dunnage pallets can be of the following:

  • Foam
  • Flexible Foams
  • Corrugated Plastic
  • Solid Plastics
  • Aluminum
  • Steel
  • Corrugated Paper
  • Wood
  • Antistatic Materials


Very useful for cushioning and securing the parts in place inside the packaging. Different types of foams can be used, determining the amount of vibration, impact and abrasion that the product may experience during transportation.

Corrugated Plastic Sheets

A good option since the boxes can continue to be reused for much longer due to the low degradation of the material.

Wood and Steel

They are used to block and reinforce heavy industrial parts such as engines, and transmissions.

Recycled Materials

Corrugated paper is usually laminated between several to form resistant blocks as some of the characteristics of metal and wood maintaining its high ability to be recycled.

Another type of very common materials in this type of packaging is Polypropylene Corrugated Sheet, Nonwoven and velvety fiber laminates.
