What are Hot Melt Adhesives?
Hot melt adhesives are adhesives that melt at a relatively low temperature (usually above 70 ° C) during application or pouring. Once cooled, the materials solidify again, ensuring cohesion.
The basis of a hot melt adhesive
There are different kinds hot melt adhesives available as standard:
- Polyolefin-based hot melt adhesives
- EVA-based hot melt adhesives
- Synthetic hot melt adhesives based on rubber, self-adhesive, PSA
- Amorphous hot melt adhesives based on poly-α-olefin
How do you apply Hot Melt Adhesives?
Hot melt adhesives are solid at room temperature and must be melted before application. Professional hands are used to melt the materials bulk glue equipment available. After application, the adhesive cools at room temperature to achieve a solid plastic-like state.
Where are Hotmelt adhesives used
Hot melt adhesives are used to optimize production processes in a wide variety of markets and applications. Intercol's hot melt solutions enable our customers to create next generation products in these industries:
