Sonoco develops revolutionary rain-resistant adhesive and sealant cartridge

RainGuard® technology means cartridges can remain on construction sites in inclement weather

HARTSVILLE, S.C., Sept. 27, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sonoco (NYSE:SON), one of the largest diversified global packaging companies, has leveraged its world-class RainGuard® technology, previously applied to its Sonotube® forms, to develop a new paper cartridge for adhesives, caulks and sealants designed to withstand inclement weather on construction sites. The cartridge can be used for traditional adhesives and sealants packaged in barrier fiber cartridges, and is now available for the entire adhesives and sealants market.

“This cartridge was developed in response to customer feedback – we learned that people needed an all-weather solution for construction sites, especially for large, ongoing projects,” said William Long, division sales manager, Adhesives and Sealants, Sonoco. “This new cartridge is still gunnable after exposure to wet conditions, meaning that construction workers don’t need to pack up every time it rains.”

In market research conducted by Sonoco, contractors most frequently mentioned rain or inclement weather as the top issue that inhibits their ability to complete a job within the committed timeframe. With Sonoco’s new cartridges, adhesive and sealant manufacturers can minimize this concern.

This new cartridge is already commercialized, and is part of a suite of packaging solutions for the adhesive and sealant markets. To learn more about Sonoco’s offerings in these areas, visit
