What is Hot Melt Adhesive?
Hot Melt is a Solvent-free adhesive made from 100% non-volatile thermoplastic materials, Hot melt adhesives are solid at room temperature, melted to application temperature and applied in a molten state.
Hot Melt Adhesive is applied as a Hot Bead, Dot or Molten Film and forms into a solid material when the hot melt cools down below its softening point.
All of our hot melt adhesives are formulated to provide desired adhesion, fast set speed, open time/bonding range, and heat and/or cold resistance properties.
Hot melt adhesives are available in pellets, micro-chips, chips, pillows and stick forms.
Some Key benefits of using Hot Melt Adhesive:
Hot melt Adhesive is 100% solid and environmentally friendly.
Hot melts have Fast Set Speed to allow for higher speed production lines.
Hot melt adhesives are Water resistant and provide excellent Glue Line Control.
Hot melts have a Long shelf life and do not require any special storage conditions.
Hot melts stick to almost any substrate and provide great final bonds.
Hot melts can be formulated to have long open time and can be used for – High Heat bonding and Deep Freeze gluing applications.
