"Customers packaging produce, bakery goods, snacks and confections need
adhesives that match their performance needs," said  Brian Glasbrenner, North
American sales manager, flexible packaging at H.B. Fuller. "We developed the
Flextra water-based dry bond hybrid laminating adhesives to give customers more
choice with the high-end performance they can count on. With these products, you
can laminate, pouch, ship and fill packages in as few as two days."

Flextra PD2243 offers the highest performance of H.B. Fuller's water-based line
with excellent clarity on various films, high bond strength, high chemical
resistance and high heat resistance. The adhesive is suitable for stand-up
pouches. Its clean machining helps minimize production line shut-downs for
clean-up.

Within the line, Flextra PD2167 provides the widest window of performance for
its cost with good bond strength on a variety of films. It has good clarity and
gravure cylinder cell release, leading to good adhesive transfer and easy
clean-up.

The base product in the family, Flextra PD2207, is suitable for a bakery, snack
and confectionary packaging, offering outstanding economics for a water-based
adhesive.
