Meeting Unique Needs in Potential Applications
Our labeling solutions have broad applications across multiple industries. Some of these include:
- Paper and plastic labels
- Metal cans in canning factories
- Plastic bottles of all shapes and sizes
- Food labeling
- Cleaning supply labeling
- Glass bottles for craft brewers and other beverage production operations
Labeling pre-filled or post filled
Whether you are labeling a bottle that is already filled or empty, BC has an adhesive that can handle either type of application. The unique formula allows for labels to expand and contract due to carbonation and will not create “dog ears” due to be stored in extremely warm climates or warehouses. Some of our formulas offer one of the highest softening points for this purpose.
Beer Bottle Labels
Beer bottle labels require a special variety of adhesive. Labels must be water-resistant and able to stand up to a considerable amount of condensation. BC Adhesives offers a creative range of beer bottle labels to ensure customers can bring their design and branding ideas to life:
- Full-wrap beer bottle labels
- Half-wrap beer bottle labels
- Beer neck labels
- Custom label shapes
BC Adhesives products never dry out on pallets, transfer drums, or fingers. They’re meant for use in the fast-paced and demanding environments that many of our industrial clients work in every day.
Coated Glass Bottles
Coated glass bottles require specialized adhesives to ensure labels remain firmly attached. At BC Adhesives, we’ve developed a proprietary adhesive solution for coated glass bottles. This ice-proof adhesive remains firmly attached to glass bottles when exposed to condensation.

We have been a BC Adhesives customer since 2013. In that time we have had changes to both amount and type of glue we use. BC Adhesives has gone above and beyond, time and time again, to make sure we had the correct type of glue and that we never ran out—even when it was due to our ordering mistakes. For me, Jon Hansen and the team at BC Adhesives are a pleasure to work with and do an outstanding job.

Labeling Success Story
BC was asked to come in and audit a well-known craft brewers lines for potential improvement. This craft brewer had been using their adhesive products for the last 10+ years and were interested in finding about new technologies on the market.
BC’s team of labeling experts were able to find several areas for improving their process before introducing new technologies. The first was moving the air knives closer to the labeling application. This allows the labels to hit the bottle with as clean as a surface as possible. Right off the bat the label swimming the prospect was experiencing was taken care of. Next we noticed the amount of slinging that was happening because of the speeds the lines were running at. The operators had also told us that cleanup is a pain every shift.
Part of our jobs as the expert is knowing the latest and greatest technologies. There are new products that have drastically reduced slinging on high speed lines which directly reduces cleanup time. In this case we were able to cut their cleanup time in half. This allowed the operators to spend time working on other parts of the lines that they normally wouldn’t have time to do in a normal shift.
After working with numerous of the countries largest craft breweries, our team has developed an understanding of best practices for the entire packaging process. There are several things that can be done upstream to help make the labeling process much easier and cleaner. Call your local rep to have your line audited today.
