Jowat Adhesives: Latest Adhesives for Filters at Filtech

Adhesives used in filter media manufacturing have to meet tough demands: different requirements with regard to air filtration in vehicles and buildings, as well as a wide range of filter materials and manufacturing methods. And the demands are getting tougher each day, for instance due to more compact engines in cars. At Filtech 2016, Jowat will present the latest developments in adhesive solutions, which are characterized by high heat resistance for the hardening process of filter papers impregnated with phenolic resin, and high flexibility during the installation and the change of air filter elements. In addition, the products have excellent processing characteristics and provide a high value contribution.

Pleating and Frame Bonding

Jowatherm® and Jowat-Highterm® adhesives for pleating and frame assembly provide a high initial strength as well as an open time adapted to the typical process speed.

In pleating operations, Jowat-Highterm® adhesives impress through superior adhesion to different types of filter materials, like papers and non-wovens, and a high heat resistance which is necessary for downline processing steps.

Due to their flexibility, Jowatherm® and Jowat-Highterm® adhesives are resistant even to heavy deformations during the installation or change of filters, therefore ensuring durable filter elements.

Laminating Activated Charcoal Media

The low application amount required with Jowatherm-Reaktant® and Jowat-Toptherm® adhesives for laminating activated charcoal media ensures a large surface of activated charcoal, therefore providing the best air filtration effect and increasing the performance of the filter. Jowatherm-Reaktant® facilitates the manufacture of passenger cell air filters in OEM quality.

Due to the latest developments in Jowat-Toptherm® polyolefin hot melts, the same adhesive can be used for manufacturing the activated charcoal filter media as well as the filter frames.
