Cattie Adhesives – Heat Seal Adhesives
What are Heat Seal Adhesives?
Heat Seal Adhesives & Coatings or Heat Seal Films are Hot Melts or Liquids that are applied to paper, film, non-woven or foil substrates and Dried. The final bond is not formed until the Heat Seal Adhesive is later – Re-activated.
Cattie Adhesives manufactures a Full Line of Hot Melt Heat Seals, Heat Seal Films & Tapes, Water based Heat Seal & Solvent based Heat Seal Coatings for many industrial – Food Packaging, Flexible Packaging, Paper Converting and Specialty Applications.
Our Heat Seal Adhesives & Coatings can be applied by different methods including – Knife over roll, reverse roll, nip roller, gravure, brush, spray or roller.
The Heat Sealing process can be performed Both In-line or after initial application.
Our Heat Seals can also be Custom formulated for specialty applications to meet requirements for – viscosity, solids %, non-blocking, clarity & heat sealing temperature.
We also have the capability to Coat our Heat Seals onto many different substrates including – felts, films, liners, magnet, papers, plastics, and textiles; for various medical and industrial applications.
Below are some of our most common types of Heat Seal Adhesives:
7-8258 Acrylic Emulsion heat seal adhesive – 58% Solids, 100cps. A packaging adhesive polymer that is heat reactive, self-curing acrylic latex with carboxyl functionality. Strong adhesion to polar substances with excellent water resistance; fast drying and high bond strength for wet laminations; high oil and plasticiser resistance after crosslinking; broad FDA approvals.
General Information: 7-8258 is excellent for wet laminating because it dries rapidly and develops high bond strength quickly. It performs well in high speed laminating operations. # 7-8258 also forms strong bonds at relatively low heat sealing temperatures – critical for many temperature-sensitive substrates. It has good specific adhesion to most polar substrates, and it forms tough, permanent bonds. It also has good water resistance.
HS410 is an EVA type heat seal film adhesive – Self-wound on a 42# silicon liner that is transferable from the silicon liner. HS410 has a wide range activation temperature with good adhesion to a variety of substrates including metals, coated films, papers and plastics. It was designed for bonding to difficult substrates in the sanding disc and Tin Tie adhesive markets.

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.
