Dairy Industry

Customer: Dean Foods (Dairy Industry)

Customer Need/Challenge:

Dean Foods was running two different products for varying grades of carton stock and freezer conditions (-45F and 0F). As a result, they were experiencing char, plugging issues with both products.

Applied Adhesives Approach:

Applied's experts introduced the customer to ASURE CC-9120-02 as a single hot melt, freezer grade product that also could eliminate char. To confirm the enhanced freezer grade performance of ASURE's polypropylene polymer system, Applied verified this hot melt's running parameters in the customer's ice cream plant.


The SUS packaging material easily was penetrated by the ASURE hot melt, delivering 100 percent fiber tear after being blast frozen from -37F for 1.5 hours.

Along with superior penetration and deep fiber tear under blast freezer conditions, the ASURE hot melt also provided 22 percent reduction in hot melt usage on all ice cream packaging applications within this plant. Applied's on-site technical support provided real-time data and an adhesive usage report to be used as a baseline for the usage savings.
