Hot Melt Solutions for Assembly and Packaging
Featured Product from Ellsworth Adhesives
Hot melt adhesives offer an economical way to bond multiple substrates. Unlike solvent-based adhesives, hot melts have a long shelf life, cure quickly, are non-toxic and can be disposed of easily. They can also be applied with the use of a hot melt gun, spray gun, dipping or bushing. The use of hot melts is commonly found in wood and paper applications such as printing, packaging, laminating and converting, but there are also multiple industries in which hot melts are a viable option including the electronics, automotive, aerospace, furniture, toy and prototype industries. Hot melts are commonly combined with base materials like silicone or polyurethanes to increase bond strength, add chemical/moisture resistance and adjust the service temperature or cure time.
