Since 2011, Borax and other Boron salts were included in the candidate list SVHC (Substances of very high concern) by ECHA as cmr-substances. However, Borax is still used as a functional additive in starch based glues.
Gilunal® A is a patented, non-toxic substitute for Borax. Gilunal® A is used for stabilising starchy- and dextrin-containing water based adhesives for the bonding of paper products based on conventional technical procedures.
Our new invention: Borax free corrugated bonding: Gilunal® C is patented (liquid and salt) as a non-toxic substitute of Borax in starch glues prepared according to the "Stein-Hall-process".
