Hotmelt adhesives are thermoplastics that are applied in a molten state and form a bond on cooling to a solid state. The two important physical properties are: glass transition temperature and melt temperature, varying significantly depending on the type of base polymer used and the additives or modifiers present in the formulation. Major application areas include shoe, automotive, packaging, electrical / electronic, and woodworking.

Hot Melt Adhesives: Basics, Ingredient Selection & Formulation Tips

By SpecialChem

Thanks to the fast setting speed, relatively low cost (materials and processing), and low environmental impact, hot melt adhesives are widely used in applications (book binding, hygiene etc.). And like any other adhesive formulations, hot melt adhesives require a delicate balancing of constituents relative to the performance and processing properties. The selection of formulation components is determined primarily by the chemical compatibility of the components both during the formulation stage and during the service life stage. Optimal properties and performance can only be exhibited by a formulation where all the components are compatible. Become an expert by learning about:   » Basics...
