Technomelt 8990 is a new hot-melt packaging adhesive that changes the rules about hot melt performance and supply. Technomelt 8990 incorporates a proprietary polymer to provide a metallocene like adhesive; with very high-strength at a very comopetitive price point. Technomelt 8990 is a very light colored, medium viscosity hot melt for case and carton sealing. Technomelt 8990 has great performance on a variety of corrugated and carton stock. Technomelt 8990, because of the nature of the raw materials, provides 20% to 30% better mileage than standard EVA technology.
Technomelt 8990 features excellent heat stability. It is non-charring and has a low odor. It remains clear in the pot after prolonged periods at 350°F. Technomelt 8990 was formulated specifically to have similar characteristics to metallocene technology.
Technomelt 8990 was designed for wrap-around case sealers, which require excellent hot tack; fast set speed and medium short open time. It is also suggested for use on clay-coated board. TECHNOMELT 8990 is especially suited for those situations in which there is poor machine compression or high spring back.
