Find me on:

Adhesives are a vital component of almost every packaging application. Glue Dots are one of the most trusted adhesives on the market today. Glue Dots were the first double-sided adhesive dots and created a viable alternative to other types of adhesive. Compared to hot-melt glues, liquid glues, and tapes, Glue Dots are cleaner and safer. Every Glue Dots product is easy to use, acid free, non-toxic, and instantly bonding.

The food and beverage industry makes heavy use of adhesives, especially in the packaging of food products.

Food & Beverage Packaging Adhesives

beverageOur food and beverage packaging adhesives can be used in many different ways. These include:

  • Internal Packaging Adhesives

Instead of having a desiccant or oxygen absorber loose inside of the package, Glue Dots can easily secure it to the interior, extending shelf life and keeping products fresh. With Glue Dots, you can also easily, efficiently, and securely group small items into one package.

  • Exterior Packaging Adhesives

On the exterior of packaging, Glue dots can be used to easily attach labels, coupons, or samples. In applications like this, Glue Dots are much cleaner, more efficient, and less wasteful than hot glue, tape, or liquid glue. 

  • Hot Melt Repairs

Glue Dots can also be used in hot melt repairs. They can control damage, breakage, and loss. This will keep your products on the shelf.

For the food and beverage industry, we recommend two of our handheld Glue Dots applicators:

  • The Dot Shot Pro applies Glue Dots quickly, neatly, and in the exact target location. Handheld and portable, it can go wherever you need it. The Dot Shot Pro dispenses single or multiple adhesive patterns simultaneously. It can accommodate many different types of patterns, including standard Glue Dots, Stitch, and MatrX.
  • The QuikDot Pro cleanly and seamlessly seals lightweight chipboard and corrugated cardboard without the need for tape or hot melt glue guns, making clunky adhesive methods a thing of the past. With the QuikDot Pro and Glue Dots brand adhesives, you can quickly increase the efficiency of your food and beverage packaging processes.
