At present, most of the straws on the market are plastic products, which will release harmful substances under high temperature and affect human health. At the same time, plastic straw is generally disposable, which will pollute the environment after being discarded. After that, the new straw tends to be market-oriented. So what is the new pipe straw? In fact, it is a paper straw because of its green environment. In the United States alone, by “one less straw”, people lose 500 million straw a day. Together, these plastic straw can circle the Earth twice and a half. In addition, compared with the traditional plastic straws, the cost of paper straws is a little higher, so it will take time to popularize the market, but as an insider, I believe that paper straws will be widely used in the world in the future. After all, from an environmental point of view, paper straw is much better than traditional plastic straw. Well, what do you think are the advantages of straw making machine and straw making equipment? Now let us take a look at the comparison between paper straw machine and plastic straw machine in packaging machinery industry.
About producing paper drinking straw
The production process of paper straw is completely different from that of plastic straw. It is usually composed of three layers of paper, which are glued together with a small amount of water-based adhesive by a core winding machine or hot-melt adhesive by a seam sewing machine, and used in a very fast production line. The selection of paper and the quality of adhesive have a fundamental impact on the performance and production efficiency of paper straw. Therefore, a strong straw requires close cooperation between paper suppliers and adhesive manufacturers. The paper manufacturer, paper grade, and paper color must be considered when selecting the appropriate adhesive.
- B fuller can help you meet the challenges of producing paper straws that deliver the performance consumers need. Our adhesive solutions comply with food contact regulations such as FDA 176.170, bfrxxxvi. Those new to the paper straw manufacturing industry may not know that they should ask the adhesive supplier if their adhesive complies with the direct liquid contact regulations. Our paper straw adhesive provides the integrity of the straw when immersed in a liquid. Paper provides the required barrier properties, and adhesives provide two key performance areas.
First, the adhesive must provide sufficient bond strength to ensure that the straw maintains its shape, even at fast production speeds and different paper quality. Second, the dry adhesive must be kept in good condition to ensure the integrity of the straw soaked in the beverage. Once the straw is disposed, the adhesive must decompose and decompose the straw in the landfill or compost of the industrial composting facilities.
Paper straw machine VS plastic straw machine
Under the new trend of environmental protection, the environmental protection effect of paper straw produced by paper straw equipment is far better than that of plastic straw machine. At present, there are many paper straws used in foreign countries, but few in China for the time being. With the development of social economy, the paper straws produced by paper straw machine will eventually become the development trend in China. With the improvement of the global awareness of environmental protection, we take saving resources and maintaining the ecological environment as our common strategic policy. Finally, the plastic straw machine will gradually be replaced by paper straw machine and paper
