Hot Melt Adhesives

hot melt applicatonHot melt adhesives are 100% solid adhesives that are heated to temperatures above their melting point and applied to at least one substrate in the molten state. These adhesives can be very rigid materials or soft "tacky" materials depending on the ingredients used which are in turn dictated by the end use of the adhesive.
Hot melts are well established in most of the adhesive markets we serve, including packaging, converting, bookbinding, labeling, non-wovens, and even product assembly, due primarily to the advantage of fast processing.
Unlike water-based or solvent-based adhesives, hot melt adhesives do not require drying. Hot melts set up as quickly as they can cool down to their solidification point. This fast solidification is ideal for use on highly automated manufacturing lines that require rapid bond formation. There are four types of hot melts available: EVAs (ethylene vinyl acetates), Polyethylene, Polyurethane Reactives (PURs), and Polyamides. Read our blog on hot melt adhesives for more details on each type.
