Improved manufacturing process for Fantastak’s SuperDiscs

September 17, 2016 Gadgets No Comments Email Email

Fantastak Ltd, Europe’s leading developer and manufacturer of glue dots and supplier of niche adhesive products, have been supplying SuperDiscs since 1999; distributing millions of these transparent adhesive circular discs all over the world. The production team has been working hard behind the scenes to improve the manufacturing process, which will provide their customers with more flexibility of the shape, size, quantity and adhesive properties they need for a specific job.

SuperDiscs are popular with the packaging industry, used for closures on boxes and cello bags and securing bellybands, which are FDA and ISEGA approved for direct contact with food and pharmaceuticals; and they are acid and lignin free. For the retail, cosmetics, pharmaceutical and food industries SuperDiscs provide a simple solution to demonstrate their product hasn’t been tampered with or contaminated. SuperDiscs can also be used for sealing boxes, bags and gift wrap at the till and are used for finishing the wrapping of goods at the counter in retail shops or for e-commerce outlets before the item is sent out for distribution, such as with products wrapped in tissue paper or the sealing of gift bags. SuperDiscs are ideal for these discreet closures and can be used on branded packaging without compromising the design.

They are also used for promotional items such as direct mail, CD cases and bags. When the edges of mailers or promotional items need sealing, SuperDiscs are ideal. Some of their customers prefer using the perforated discs on mailers for ease of opening by the end user and so the surface of the design isn’t compromised. Whereas, some of their customers like to use the plain discs. Fantastak’s Account Managers are on hand to advise which discs would be best for a specific job.

SuperDiscs are available in permanent or peelable adhesive in standard stock sizes of 18mm, 25mm, 34mm and 50mm. All standard disc sizes are presented plain on the roll, however the 25mm, 34mm and 50mm discs are also offered with a perforation running across the centre. They are well-liked as they are clean, quick, safe, discreet and have an immediate bond that can be applied by hand or machine, such as the Lynx Tabber.

Now Fantastak are able to manufacture the SuperDiscs in shapes other than discs, depending on the needs of the customer. Fantastak have invested into new equipment that allows them to be flexible in shape and size at production stage. Just send in your design and they will work with you to develop a SuperDisc to your specific requirements. So if you want a four leaf clover, a hexagon, oblong or square SuperDisc, ask them for a quote. Fantastak have the ability to provide different sizes too for example, if the 18mm SuperDisc is too small and the 25mm SuperDisc is too big they can create a size in-between to fit your needs.

“This is an exciting development here at Fantastak. This new technology allows us to be much more flexible in meeting our customer’s needs.” Comments Paul Simpson, Technical Director, Fantastak.

Discs can also be printed on, be opaque or can come in a variety of colours – if in doubt just give us a shout!
