Hot Melt Adhesive

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.

Fugitive Hot Melt Adhesive

Cattie Adhesives – Fugitive Hot Melt Adhesive

What is Fugitive Hot Melt adhesive?

Fugitive hot melt adhesive, also called “Credit Card glue” or “Booger glue”, is a Low-tack adhesive that produces removable, non-permanent bonds.

Fugitive hot melt adhesives form a Temporary Bond between two substrates leaving minimal residue and can be separated without damaging either substrate.


Cattie Adhesives manufactures a full line of high performance Fugitive / Removable Hot Melt Adhesives; available in several degrees of Color, Peel Strength, Tack, Shear Strength and Viscosity.

Our Fugitive Hot Melt adhesive can be formulated as Non-Staining and “Water White” Color; making them a great choice for Credit Card Affixing and Direct Mail applications.

Our Fugitive adhesives are widely used on Direct Mail and Marketing materials, where a substrate material – product insert, sample or a return envelope – is glued to another, usually a paper or film – mailing envelope or a magazine.

Fugitive hot melt adhesive is not designed to be reseal-able; for this we also make a Repositionable” Hot Melt.


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