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.

What is EVA Hot Melt Adhesive?

EVA hot melt adhesive  (Ethylene – Vinyl Acetate)  is 100% Solid, thermoplastic adhesive that is tack free and flexible at room temperature.  When heated to 250 -350F, the EVA hot melt turns into a liquid and is applied to the material to be bonded. Hot melt EVA is an economical, fast bonding option for a variety of Packaging and Product Assembly applications.

EVA hot melt adhesive can be formulated to be very Fast Setting or made to have Long Open Time and can be designed for use in High Heat and Freezer Grade applications.

EVA hot melts are a great choice for most Case, Tray & Carton Sealing and Packaging applications when Fast Set Time, Clean Machining and good adhesion to various substrates is needed.


Our line of hot melt EVA adhesives cover a wide range temperatures from approximately -40 to 160°F.

• Frozen foods exposed to very cold or blast
freezer temperatures
• End-of-line packaging in typical ambient conditions
• Exposure to high temperatures in rail shipping
• Unpredictable environmental conditions
Understand the substrate
• Sensitive substrates requiring low
application temperature
• Smooth and difficult to bond to high recycle
content corrugate


• Standard corrugate with minimal
performance needs
• Waxy coatings or printed corrugate
Understand the application and
packaging process
• High memory corrugate or fast line speeds
requiring fast set speeds
• Packaging of hot fill products requiring
elevated temperature green strength
• Bonding of primary food packaging requiring
FDA direct food contact clearance
• Auto-feed systems requiring tack-free and
optimal adhesive shape for clog free air transfer


We also have the capability to Coat our EVA Hot Melt Adhesives onto many different substrates including felts, films, liners, magnet, papers, plastics, and textiles; for various medical and industrial applications.


Our EVA hot melts are commonly used in the following Applications:

  • Bookbinding
  • Case & Carton Sealing
  • CD/DVD/Digipak Carton Sleeves
