Jowat Launches Adhesive for Laminating Vehicle Interior

DETMOLD -- Jowat has introduced Jowatherm-Reaktant® 642.00 adhesive, a PUR hot melt adhesive with such a wide range of features like for laminating applications in the automotive industry especially vehicle interiors.

Properties of New PUR Hot Melt Adhesive


  • It provides a considerably faster build-up of cohesion and an improved creep resistance and hence reduces the risk of adhesive failures under tension and heat
  • Possesses very good initial strength
  • It has short holding times and processing cycles even at high ambient temperatures
  • It has substantially reduced VOC values

The all-round new PUR hot melt is suitable for all 3D laminating applications in the automotive industry and provides superior quality, which previously required several different adhesive products. The key focus during the development of Jowatherm-Reaktant® 642.00 was to deliver outstanding performance and, therefore, the adhesive is characterized by significantly optimized product and processing properties.

Applications of Jowatherm-Reaktant® 642.00 Adhesive

Jowat new PUR Hot melt

Jowatherm-Reaktant® 642.00 can be applied with different systems like nozzles, roller applications, spraying, etc. The new hot melt adhesive is suitable for press lamination as well as for vacuum deep-drawing.

Long dwell times and the required energy for drying and evaporation - known from classic solvent-based adhesives and dispersions - become obsolete with PUR hot melts. The time needed to cool the adhesive down has been reduced to the level of the pressing and holding times of solvent-based adhesives and dispersions, leading to an additional benefit of Jowatherm-Reaktant® 642.00: considerably shorter process cycles.
