A Range of Metallocene Hot-Melt Options Available

Hot-melt adhesives not only offer superior performance properties, but also provide manufacturers with a range of metallocene options and capabilities:

Metallocene options are available

  • High-melt metallocene: Applied at 350 degrees Fahrenheit, this gives production operators a smooth-flowing, consistent, and trouble-free adhesive solution for a wide variety of product operating requirements;
  • Low-melt metallocene: Applied at 250 degrees Fahrenheit, this melts to a lower viscosity, so the same amount can be applied at lower pressure, increasing mileage. Low-melt also offers machine operators the added safety feature of working with adhesive at a safer, lower application temperature
  • Packaging-specific metallocene: Formulated for a wide variety of specialized box, carton, tray, and packaging materials, including corrugated plain and inked, coated and uncoated stocks, paper bag stocks, trays, frozen food and ready-made meals packages, and other packaging stocks and configurations.
