Situated in the U.K., Gard Chemicals is a specialist manufacturer of adhesive cleaners and release agents for the hot and cold glues used within the food, drink, packaging and associated industries, and has recently developed a new range of products that removes sticky issues with adhesives.

This new range of industry-approved Gard chemical cleaner is now being supplied to bottling halls, packaging companies, food manufacturers and more, for use on all surfaces both to clean and prevent adhesive from sticking by using safer, more efficient and environmentally-friendly products than previously available.

The R&D team at Gard Chemicals looked at the old problems associated with traditional adhesive cleaners such as flammable solvents, citrus based cleaners, paraffin wax granules, etc. and formulated the new range to meet food industry standards.

Applications for this new product range include external adhesive removers for in situ cleaning, liquid hot melt purges for pre-melt units and hoses, release agents for preventing both hot melt and cold adhesives from sticking to surfaces making clean down a lot easier and quicker. This product range is manufactured under ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 accreditations.
