Benefits and Challenges of Hot Melt Adhesives in Industrial Environments

In industrial use, hot melt adhesives (HMAs) provide several advantages over solvent-based adhesives.  They include:

  • Volatile organic compounds that are reduced or eliminated
  • The drying or curing step is eliminated
  • Hot melt adhesives have long shelf life and usually can be disposed of without special precautions
  • HMAs do not lose thickness during solidifying; solvent-based …

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:

  • 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;

Comparing Costs: Metallocene vs. EVA Hot Melt Adhesive

Previous posts outlined the advantages of metallocene-based adhesives compared to traditional EVA-based hot-melt adhesives, so now we look at costs.

But what about costs?

Metallocene-based hot-melt adhesive may initially cost more than EVA-based hot melt adhesive. However, the costs associated with problems from char-prone EVA can erase any initial cost savings you may have received.
