Pattex Made-at-Home plastic bottle and nozzle composed of 100% PCR material.
Pattex Made-at-Home plastic bottle and nozzle composed of 100% PCR material.

Borealis, Austrian supplier of polyolefin compounds, and Henkel, the provider of adhesives, sealants and functional coatings, recently announced the successful launch of a new packaging solution produced entirely with post-consumer recycled (PCR) material.

The companies have worked to develop a new packaging solution based on recycled material for the Made-at-Home all-purpose glue bottle and cap, which Henkel is marketing under its well-known Pattex brand. 

The aim was to replace the virgin plastic material traditionally used for this packaging with a recyclate-based resin. The resin, however, had to fulfil the diverse material demands for packaging of an adhesive product.

After extensive and joint application development, a new bottle was developed with Borealis’ proprietary product brand Purpolen PE, a high-quality polyethylene regranulate produced by mtm, a member of the Borealis Group, at its facilities in Niedergebra, Germany.

Pattex Made-at-Home universal 80g bottle nozzle cap. Two German-based value chain partners also closely collaborated in this sustainable packaging solution. The plastics processor KKT Kaller Kunststoff Technik GmbH manufactured the bottles while plastic components manufacturer bomo trendline Technik GmbH produced the applicator nozzles.

For the three separate components of the adjustable applicator nozzle, which is used for both filigree and wide-area gluing, high-quality Purpolen polypropylene regranulate produced was identified as the ideal solution.

The new Pattex Made-at-Home packaging solution successfully passed extensive application tests, including a three-month storage test and other tests of mechanical properties. It was launched on the European market in 2018.

According to Günter Stephan, head of Borealis Circular Economy Solutions, even though the current momentum is gaining in the drive to increase the circularity of plastics, the industry still needs proofs that using recyclates is a suitable and effective option, even for demanding applications.

“Thanks to this successful value chain cooperation with our partners Henkel, KKT and bomo, we are giving plastics a second life and are thus one step closer to the goal of a more circular economy of plastics,” he continued.

“We identified Pattex Made-at-Home as a candidate for exploring the use of recyclate instead of virgin plastics. This constructive collaboration with our partners proves the viability of 100% PCR material for an adhesive product like Made-at Home,” noted Matthias Schaefer, Project Manager for Global Packaging Engineering at Henkel Adhesive Technologies.
