Paint Coating Adhesives & Hot Melt Adhesives
Hot-melt adhesives are solvent-free, thermoplastic materials used in a variety of applications such as packaging, book binding, wood furniture and toy assembly, air filters, NSF grade water filters and more.
Also known as glue sticks, these liquefied thermoplastic adhesives are available in both low and high-temperature versions. Low temperature hot melt adhesives are applied at 250°F/120°C temperatures, which makes them ideal for bonding electronics, plastics, cloth and other heat sensitive materials. High temperature hot melt adhesives are applied at 380°F/193°C and produce a stronger bond than the low temperature hot melts.
Hot melt adhesive is applied using a small, handheld applicator or a large automated system with multiple automatic applicators. They are applied in the molten state at temperatures varying from 120°C to 180°C / 250°F to 380°F.
Carmel supplies these products in a solid chicklet, or block form. We offer compositions which are particularly useful for toy article application because of our use of safe, naturally occurring terpene solvent.
