Water-based Labelling Adhesives

Our water-based adhesives cover a broad range of bottle labelling applications.

Beardow Adams GmbH (formally Klebstoffwerke Collodin) pioneered the use of casein in the 1970's and since then our next generation of synthetic, casein and hybrid adhesives have been used to label many millions of beer, water, soft drink and other beverage bottles.

Our Signacoll® water-based adhesives set the standard for beverage labelling and are manufactured exclusively in our state-of-the-art plant in Frankfurt, Germany. We continue to develop this range, which comprises of adhesives that address the need for higher running speeds, demanding substrates, and to keep production lines running efficiently, reliably and cleanly.

Uniquely formulated to hold labels neatly in place across a range of applications, beverage manufacturers choose our Signacoll adhesives for their trouble-free running, excellent wash-off suitability, and reliable performance across different environments.
