New use of induction sealing

A new adhesive opens up opportunities in glass that previously were not practical.

Displayed at PACK EXPO was the first commercial use of Selig's Deltaseal 9000 adhesive.

Selig is a major provider of the foil liners that get induction sealed to glass and plastic containers. But historically, its materials were only induction sealed to glass if the container’s contents were dry. Why? Because fats in wet products would attack the seal and compromise its integrity over time. But introduced at PACK EXPO International was Deltaseal 9000, a new adhesive that is perfectly suitable for induction sealing to glass jars. On display at the Selig booth was the first container to take advantage of this new adhesive: a 400-g glass jar of hazelnut paste from a Dutch food producer.
