Hot melt adhesives, which are non-solvent formulations that become liquid upon heating, can be applied in molten form. The substrates must be joined in the open time to achieve good wetting. Hot melts have a rapid increase in internal strength upon cooling. They can be used to harden thermoplastic adhesives that are already in their final chemical form.


These are the benefits of hot melt adhesives

  • A 100 % solids percentage, without solvents or water

  • Short setting times allow for high production speeds.

  • There are many adhesion options available for different materials.

  • They can even level out surface irregularities

  • Water-free bonding creates smooth surfaces

  • Elastic bondlines

  • Can be activated by heat and used for precoating

  • Heating (recycling), can open joint.
