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.
