The Italian company Kemind Srl have developed new glue concepts for corrugators. By adding 2D fabs graphene to the formula they have managed to increase production efficiency, reduce costs and improve quality for various products.
Increased production efficiency, reduced costs and improved quality
By adding graphene to the glue formula in the corrugating process, the company has managed to increase production efficiency, reduce costs and improve quality for various corrugated board products. Production efficiency increase of between 30-50% can be obtained for double and triple walled heavy grades, while energy and glue consumption in single and double walled board grades can be reduced substantially.
– The numbers Kemind are presenting are incredible. To obtain 30-50% increase in production efficiency makes a huge difference for any company, says 2D fab’s CEO Sven Forsberg. Yet again graphene shows just how extraordinary of a material it is, and what difference it can make.
The graphene-based concepts have been in commercial use since late fall 2019, and significant expansion of these products is projected in the near future.
