Adhesives in Farming

Farming has always been a major part of Ohio’s history and economy.

Many of these agricultural farms are family-based businesses that have been producing crops for several generations.  From fruits, vegetables and ornamental plants to dairy, eggs and meats, these Ohioan farms stock grocery stores, garden centers and farmer’s markets throughout Ohio and into other states.

What, you may wonder, does this have to do with adhesives?

Adhesives are used in farming for many purposes, from agriculture machines to animal husbandry, but most commonly for packaging and transportation.

Crops and produce must stay fresh and get to their destination undamaged, farmers need to find the right adhesive and packaging solutions for suitable containers and secure transport that maintains top-quality products.

HAR provides agricultural packaging solutions through high performance adhesives to protect products, reduce costs and meet sustainability goals. We offer adhesive technologies for case and carton sealing of corrugated boxes and coated paperboards as well as bonding of paper bags, corrugated fiberboard, PVC and PET clamshells and other flexible packaging.

While adhesives are a small portion of a package, they are an essential component on the strength and durability of any container.

The right adhesive can help a package maintain proper ventilation or block out UV rays; stay stable in hot or cold temperatures; resist physical damage; withstand moisture and much more.

To help farmers, HAR Adhesive Technologies provides adhesive solutions for case and carton, flexible packaging and packaging containment and reinforcement that address the unique needs of any company or distributor. We are proud to help our local farmers in Ohio and in the mid-west, by continuing to assist them with the process of providing the finest and freshest products from farm to store shelf.
