Adhesive Solutions for Specialized Applications

A wide range of packaging applications—including labels for food and drinks, cleaning supplies, over-the-counter medicine and shampoos—are often subjected to conditions resulting in the need for unique performance characteristics. In order to meet both standard performance requirements and any complicating factors like environmental conditions or industry regulations, these applications typically necessitate specialized adhesives.

Avery Dennison Performance Polymers offers a broad portfolio of specialized emulsion, solvent, UV-cured acrylic and synthetic rubber hot melt adhesives designed for these applications. With an assortment of performance features, these adhesives can offer an excellent bond to a wide range of materials, including Low Surface Energy (LSE) and recycled plastics, low-ooze properties for high-speed converting and excellent visual clarity to enable design flexibility.

In addition, we offer adhesives designed for common specialized industry applications:

Food and Beverage

  • Compliance to FDA 175.105, FDA 175.125 and ISEGA EU 10/2011
  • Resistance to cold temperatures

Home and Personal Care

  • Resistance to warm, humid environments
  • Resistance to water and common household chemicals


  • ISO 3826, ISO 10993 and EU Regulation (EC) No 1935/2004 compliance
  • Excellent bond to resist flagging on tight curvatures
  • Engineered to prevent the migration of adhesive components

In addition to our standard adhesives, the challenging nature of these applications often requires specifically formulated, customized adhesive solutions. Working closely with our customers, our scientists and engineers can quickly adjust existing adhesive platforms or develop new polymer systems to address the most complex challenges.
