Ethylene Vinyl Acetate Hot Melts
Hot melt adhesives based on ETHYLENE VINYL ACETATE (EVA) offer a broad variety of performance features and many diverse application opportunities.  EVA hot melts are formulated to bond many types of substrates including corrugated board, cardboard, wood, some foams, and other difficult to bond materials.  Fast set speeds of EVA hotmelts make them an excellent choice for high speed packaging applications and are the “workhorse” product used for case and carton sealing.  HAR Adhesive Technologies offers an extensive line of products to meet your particular needs from long open time to set up as low as one second.  We have EVA hot melts that will withstand sub-freezer temperatures and will withstand the transportation in truck trailers at peak summer temperatures.  EVA’s are versatile and a good value, however, they do not machine as cleanly as Metallocene or PE based hot melts.
