What are hot melt adhesives?
Hot melt adhesives are solid materials that melt at relatively low temperatures (over 80 ° C) during the application or molding process. As soon as they have cooled down, the materials become solid again and thus ensure cohesion.
Available chemistry platforms for hot melt adhesives
- Copolymers of hot melt adhesives based on ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA)
- Polyurethane-based hot melt adhesives
- Polyolefin based hot melt adhesives
- Hot melt adhesives based on synthetic rubber
- Amorphous poly-α hot melt adhesives based on olefin
- Polyamide-based hot melt adhesives
- Polyester-based hot melt adhesives
How hot melt adhesives are applied
Hot melt adhesives are solid at room temperature and must be melted before use. Several device platforms are available for melting the materials before they are applied to a substrate. Some systems offer dual functions such as melting and molding. After application, the hot melt adhesives cool down at room temperature to fully cure.
