Food contact material regulations...
Food contact material regulations around the globe pose ever more stringent requirements on the materials can makers are able to use to design their products. These efforts across the industry are continuing to put consumer safety first in all of design and production approaches. While this is a-well known topic when talking about coatings, also sealants can contribute to mitigating and reducing risk from cans as a food contact material.
Wakol has been making these considerations the “prime directive” for decades, which today makes Wakol a leader in styrene and MOSH/MOAH-free technologies for sealing compounds with its Advanced Technology Series, as well as putting us on a path of continuous improvement of management of non-intentionally added substances (NIAS) impact from the sealants.
Wakol will be at Latamcan to talk about the topic in detail.

Michael Fischer confirmed as Managing Partner, further expansion and long-term succession secured...
Adhesives manufacturer Wakol GmbH is increasing its share in LOBA GmbH & Co. KG, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of surface treatments, and now holds a majority stake in the company. As Wakol has been majority-owned by ARDEX since 2015, LOBA will thus become part of the international ARDEX Group. To facilitate this transaction, four long-standing LOBA shareholders have put their shares up for sale. The overriding goal of this decision is to safeguard the company’s long-term success. Therefore, the new shareholder structure consists of Wakol GmbH and Michael Fischer, who will remain as Managing Partner.
“By linking LOBA with Wakol, we have managed to provide our company with an extremely sustainable perspective and pave the way for my succession early on. The international operations of the ARDEX Group offer excellent opportunities to continue growing and to lead LOBA into a successful future”, says Managing Partner Michael Fischer about the new structure. “I am most delighted that our shareholders unanimously supported this step and that we have been able to win such substantial partners for LOBA”.
Christian Groß, Wakol shareholder and CEO, sees the strengthening and expansion of the existing cooperation as a common goal: “LOBA and Wakol have been working together excellently for over 20 years and we are now able to reinforce this even further. I am convinced that the ARDEX Group offers great opportunities for both companies, whilst at the same time preserving the values and culture of a family business”.
Mark Eslamlooy, CEO of the ARDEX Group, has also expressed his pleasure over the partnership: “The cooperation with LOBA provides us with an optimal constellation to further expand our competence in the field of flooring systems and surface finishings. The LOBA brand enjoys a distinguished reputation and stands for technical competence, premium products and outstanding service. The strong international orientation and the extremely high level of commitment of the people involved have convinced us that LOBA is the ideal partner for us”.
Ditzingen site to be expanded – company will remain independent
LOBA's Ditzingen site will be further expanded as a development and production center for surface finishing within the ARDEX Group. The treatment and finishing of wood and cork currently play a key role for LOBA. Additionally, the company is expanding its activities in finishing resilient floor coverings as well as cementitious surfaces.
The company name, brand and sales structure remain unchanged as well as the contact persons for customers and suppliers. In both companies, the organization and personnel will remain the same. Following a mandatory review by the antitrust authorities, the transaction is expected to be completed at the latest by the end of November 2018.
Wakol GmbH develops, produces and very successfully sells laying materials, industrial adhesives and sealing compounds. It has stood for premium quality and customer accessibility for over 80 years. The ARDEX Group has been the majority shareholder of this family-owned company since 2015. Over 185 people are employed at the headquarters in Pirmasens; worldwide, the Wakol Group employs around 230 people. Besides Germany, Austria, Switzerland, North America and the Netherlands are amongst the most important sales markets. There are further intensive activities in Poland, Italy and Great Britain, to name a few. Wakol is also actively involved in global exports.
Founded in 1922, the finishing and care of parquet and hardwood floors have been the core business of the company based in Ditzingen near Stuttgart for almost 100 years. LOBA also owns subsidiaries in Brazil and China, as well as joint ventures with Wakol in Poland and North America. The LOBA Group currently employs around 120 people, 97 of whom work at the Ditzingen site. Technical excellence, top-quality products and the extremely well-focused customer orientation are the key factors for the success of the LOBA brand in over 60 countries.
ARDEX GmbH is one of the world’s market leaders in high-quality chemical building products. As a family-owned company, the company has maintained a sustainable growth course for over 65 years. Today, the ARDEX Group employs more than 3,000 people and is represented in over 100 countries on all continents, boasting a virtually end-to-end presence in its core market of Europe. With more than ten major brands, including Wakol, ARDEX generates total turnover of over EUR 770m worldwide.
Innovative bonding of shafts
Wakol offers a new sprayable shoe adhesive with high initial strength and excellent processing properties. WAKOL D 3465 Special Adhesive is suitable for the manufacture of shoe shafts and insoles by hiding all common leather, cushioning and lining materials.
The use of this alkali- and ammonia-free raw material with very low allergenic potential reduces the skin-irritating effect of the adhesive significantly or substantially. Contamination of the adhesive during processing is impossible with the application in the closed container. Only a 10 kg container is connected directly to the spray gun which avoids the former refilling into a pressurised container. Mould formation in pressurised containers is therefore impossible.
The absence of odours (no ammonia) during processing is particularly beneficial. A high initial strength is already achieved with little pressure. In order to control the spray application of the undyed adhesive also on bright lining materials, a UV indicator is added which enables visualisation under black light. Typical spray devices can be used without any problems. Only the selected spray pressure must be readjusted or reduced to 1-2 bar. It is possible to clean the application devices with water. Work benches can also be easily cleaned with little effort. Very high heat resistance allows other work processes such as heatsetter, blow-drying and steaming without any problems. Hydrolysis tests (70°, 7d , 100% RF) permit use in the area of heavy and sports footwear.

WAKOL Sealing Compounds – expanded product range
Wakol presents at Metpack two new additions to its extensive Sealing Compound range.
- WAKOL D 3756 Sealing Compound for Beverage cans
- WAKOL PU 4320 / 4315 Sealing Compound for Food pails and drums.
WAKOL D 3756 Sealing Compound for Beverage cans
WAKOL D 3756 Sealing Compound is a water-based sealing compound based on SBR for beverage application and is suitable for the filling of mineral water, carbonated soft drink, beer as well as dairy products. It shows a very good performance using high throughput application machinery (up to 1500 epm / rotational multi-head liner) applying to small diameters.
It is formulated to achieve virtually no taste or odour influences on filling goods. Therefore WAKOL D 3756 Sealing Compound is suitable for taste-sensitive filling goods like e.g. mineral water.
It complies with latest regulatory requirements, according to European and FDA food contact regulations. TNO and Nehring certificates are available
It shows excellent performance on high-speed rotational multi liners due to low drying tendency on nozzles. Reject rates are exceptionally low. An excellent shear stability provides optimum performance through central supply systems.
WAKOL PU 4320 / 4315 Sealing Compound for Food pails and drums
WAKOL PU 4320 / 4315 Sealing Compound is a two-component, self-blowing polyurethane foam. It was especially developed to form gaskets for pails and drum covers with ring ladge application. For the product, full compliance for food contact according to European Food Contact law has been achieved.
As the foam shows a very good resistance against water, fats, oils and aliphatic solvents it can also be used for the sealing of packaging of aqueous-based products for technical applications, glycols, oils, aliphatic solvents and solid filling materials.
The reaction leads to an elastic and fine-porous gasket with a smooth surface. 2-C-Polyurethane technology offers several advantages: no oven needed, high form stability of the gasket, plasticizer free, low migration, PVC free.
The Wakol exhibition team is looking forward to inform you about the full product range and will be available for further details. Visit Wakol in Hall 3.0 Stand 3A34.
