Products Hot melt adhesives provide customers in every industry sector with uniquely versatile, high performance solutions. As specially formulated preparations, hot melt adhesives can be tailored to adhere strongly to most materials including metal, plastic, rubber, ceramic, glass, wood, paper, leather, fabric and foam. Unlike less advanced adhesives, hot melts can also be used with confidence on hot, cold or wet surfaces. Offering clear commercial benefits… This unrivalled versatility has made them the adhesives of choice within a diverse range of markets from packaging, labeling and woodworking to product assembly, bookbinding and converting. In addition, hot melts offer a number of clear commercial benefits. They are non hazardous, low in odor and before being used are 100% solid, making them clean and safe to handle. Where several adhesives may currently be used, these can also often be replaced with one hot melt adhesive to save time and money.
