When bottle labeling, it’s important to maintain the correct temperature for your labeling adhesive.
The optimum operating temperature is 77 degrees. When the temperature drops below that, some problems arise.
When glue gets cold it becomes thick and doesn’t set. This can cause the glue to build up on the machines. Additionally, it doesn’t pick up the labels due to a lack of tack.
When temperatures drop below 70 degrees, it’s important to look at a heating solution for your labeling adhesive.
There are a few solutions based on your needs. You can use heating blankets for glue totes or drums. Also, you can use a heated line that the glue goes through. Also, you may be able to run a heater that’s built into the machine itself.
By doing this, you’re going to eliminate down time and have your labeling glue providing optimum pick up and adhesive.
