THE BENEFITS OF HOT-MELT PURGES AND CLEANERS

When plants use hot melt adhesives in their operations, the tanks hoses and nozzles are put under continuous heat stress, and have a tendency to create char, either from the hot melt adhesive or from contaminants introduced into the hot melt pots. For the plants to continue to have manufacturing efficiency and consistent performance from the adhesive and equipment it is necessary to clean the hot melt tanks, nozzles and heads, on a consistent basis.
