PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE – FIGHTING CHAR BUILDUP

Charring is the oxidation of hot melt adhesive due to prolonged and repeated heating. Charred adhesive will not dissolve nor can it be remelted. Charred hot melt will clog hoses, filters, nozzles and damage equipment. Charring is inherent and can only be reduced but not completely eliminated. Read More

THE SCOOP ON: METALLOCENE HOT-MELTS

Polyolefin-based hot-melt adhesives including ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) have been a mainstay of adhesive production for decades. However, recent innovations in polyolefin catalyst technology - Metallocene - represent breakthroughs that permit formulation of hot melt adhesives designed to increase productivity and efficiencies in industrial applications.

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.
