In the labelling industry, glue is a big deal. No, seriously. The wrong glue on the wrong production line can cause machine parts to char or degrade, slow production and increase wasteful downtime. Which means that good glue is a big deal.
But how do you make glue sexy? It’s not exciting stuff.
One way is to make the glue company a little more helpful, human and fun. I took the dry old copy and gave it some life. Short, snappy sentences. Solid B2B messaging: eliminating charring and nozzle blockages. Maximum uptime. Clean production runs. Usage savings. Everything designed to communicate the big benefit to manufacturing customers: cost savings.
What I wrote:
Hidden cost or total lowest cost?
The price you pay per kilo? Tip of the iceberg. The real cost of a poor product is the underwater stuff. Thermal instability. Charring. Nozzle blockages. Problems that translate to downtime and eat away at your profit. Because time is money on a production line.
Alphabond adopts the ideology of World Class Manufacturing. A grade that costs a pittance but blocks nozzles is rarely good value. A high performance product—one that uses one-third less adhesive, eliminates blockages and slashes downtime—reduces overall spend.
We pledge to focus on the Total Lowest Cost solution. Across all our brands, the emphasis is on quality and performance to give greater savings through noticeably reduced consumption and by cutting downtime from nozzle blockages and stringing (often by over 40%). It’s our way of helping you cut waste and manufacture lean.
That’s how we add real value. That’s how our customers win.
