It sometimes seems like hot melts can work wonders. By using unique, high-quality hot melts, wood materials can achieve a very strong bond between two materials within seconds.
The benefits of hot melts
Hot melt adhesives are clean, easy to handle and extremely user-friendly. This category of wood adhesives are used worldwide in demanding applications such as precoating, profile sheeting, edge banding, soft forming, foam bonding, V-groove and top lamination. The new thermostable and odorless range of polyolefin adhesives can also be used with most woodworking machines and offers superior adhesion to PVC, HPL, solid wood, melamine, wood veneer and other materials such as MDF and chipboard.
Hot melt as coating or primer
These hot melts are also often used for pre-coating melamine-impregnated paper, veneer, HPL and PVC edging tape. Profile sheath hot melts have been developed for use with wood veneer, paper foil, PVC and plastic laminates. Door and frame manufacturers can use these hotmetls to produce, paint and harden profiles in one operation.
Edge banding adhesives
Various hot melt adhesives used in the furniture industry can withstand temperatures up to 100 ° C without delamination.
Our hot melts are widely used in furniture construction, such as for foam and textile adhesives at upholstery companies and bedding suppliers.
