The Technomelt® COOL line of hot melt adhesives; have changed the landscape in hot melt adhesive technology. This line of products offers a number of advantages over the standard EVA products and has a number of advantages that are detailed below.
Technomelt® COOL hot melt adhesives operate about 100°F lower than conventional hot melts. Approximately 6% of plant employees suffer some type of burn, according to industry studies. This can be greatly reduced, if not eliminated, with Technomelt® COOL adhesive products.
Lower maintenance replacement costs, and longer equipment life
It’s the buildup of char and gel that causes hot melt adhesive glue line nozzles, hoses, pumps, and other components to fail prematurely. Because Technomelt® COOL hot melt adhesives run at 250°F, char simply doesn’t have a chance to form. Not only will you eliminate the hassle of changing parts, but also the costs. Many packagers spend $20-$30 for every 100 pounds of hot melt adhesive they use on hot melt replacement parts.
Anyone can talk about mileage savings with reduced hot melt usage and lower density, but if the product doesn’t stick with the lower amounts, the savings don’t do any good. Technomelt® COOL hot melt adhesives have unique characteristics that allow them to wet out the substrate and penetrate for deep fiber-tearing bonds at lower hot melt adhesive application rates. Additionally, due to its superior stability and no char, Technomelt® COOL will deliver consistent bead widths to help bring your processes under control, cutting down on the variability and costs.
Technomelt® COOL hot melt adhesives operate at 100°F lower in temperature – emitting fewer volatiles and thereby emitting less odor.
Lots of other benefits
Technomelt® COOL hot melt adhesives work well with virtually all substrates – high-performance corrugated, recycled board, solid fiber kraft, SBS, polylaminates, coated stock, foil laminates and many more.
At an operating temperature of only 250°F, Technomelt® COOL hot melt adhesives save up to 33% on energy costs. And that lower temperature translates into other benefits, too, like fewer machine service calls, less downtime and more productive up time.
