The Sticking Power of Water, Tissue360º Fall/Winter 2019
Following the Tissue World event held in Milan in March 2019, Futura held an open house demonstration of its latest technology at its FuturaLab facility in Lucca, Italy. Visitors observed the benefits of JOI Hydro-bond, which Futura summarizes as the “sticking power of water.”
The company demonstrated that “perfect adhesion” of up to four bathroom-tissue plies can be achieved with water alone—totally without glue.
Sergio Tonarelli, chief sales officer, Futura, says the technology was developed thanks to the company’s constant search for new processes and improving existing ones. “Laminating with glue has limitations because glue does not apply well at high speed; 600-650 m/min is the limit for glue, so by eliminating it we can go faster.”
