Dow, Nordmeccanica to jointly develop flexible packaging solutions

HORGEN, SWITZERLAND: The Dow Chemical Company said that it has signed a global innovation and business development agreement with Nordmeccanica SpA, a worldwide leader in coating, laminating and metallizing machinery.

Both companies see enormous potential to advance solutions for the flexible packaging industry by combining adhesive development with machine pioneering that target new technologies for faster commercialization to market.

New developments can be expected from the joint collaboration with Dow and Nordmeccanica through Dow’s Pack Studios in Mozzate, Italy.

The collaboration agreement will also enable similar capabilities at additional Pack Studios across the globe.

Pack Studios provide customers an opportunity to leverage Dow’s expertise, broad product portfolio, and product and application testing capabilities to accelerate the development of innovative solutions. It also connect customers with Dow’s global network of capabilities, and enable collaboration across the value chain - including resins, lamination, packaging design, converting and prototyping.

Accelerating innovation to market

Aiming at faster commercialization of new adhesive solutions, Dow and Nordmeccanica are working on joint projects in order to bring several new technologies to market in 2016.

“This formal development agreement reflects another milestone in Dow’s strong commitment to the adhesives industry, coupled with the strong participation in the flexible packaging market through our polyethylene and specialty resin offerings,” said Greg Bunker, global business director, adhesives for packaging, textiles and hygiene, Dow.

“Nordmeccanica truly believes in the power of these two companies to drive innovation.
