What is Pressure Sensitive Hot Melt Adhesive?

Pressure Sensitive Hot Melt Adhesive is best known for its Aggressive Bond Strength, Low Temperature Flexibility and High Heat Resistance; making it an excellent choice for sticking many difficult to bond, low energy substrates.

Hot Melt Pressure Sensitive Adhesives (HMPSA) are unique because they do not solidify to form a hard material; they remain permanently tacky and have the ability to wet-out substrates on contact. The bonds are formed by bringing the PSA adhesive in contact with the substrate and applying pressure.

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

We also have the capability to Coat our Pressure Sensitive Hot Melt Adhesives onto many different substrates including  – felts, films, foams, liners, magnet, papers, plastics, and textiles; for various  Medical Tape  and Industrial Tape applications.  


Our Pressure Sensitive hot melts are commonly used in the following Applications:

  • Automotive
  • Bookbinding
  • Diapers
  • Direct Mail
  • Frozen Foods
  • Graphic Arts
  • Insect Traps / Rodent Traps
  • Labeling & Tapes
