Hot Melt Adhesive And Water-based Adhesive


There are several commercially available industrial adhesives on the market. The most popular is the hot melt adhesive. Hot melt adhesives are polymer-based and are thermoplastic in nature, meaning they are solid at room temperature. These are typically used as a molten film or a series of beads which, when cooled and cured, are converted into solid form. Because hot melt adhesives do not use water or solvents, they also have very fast settling times, making them more popular industrial adhesives.

Industrial adhesives range from a wide range of paper and packaging to woodworking and automotive industries. In particular, hot melt adhesives are commonly used for shell and carton sealing and assembly, container labeling and paper conversion. The use of hot melt adhesives has several advantages. Hot melt adhesive has a very fast set speed, with moderate resistance characteristics. Depending on the product being used, they also apply to a wide range of temperatures and industries with excellent adhesion properties. With their affordability and quality, these features continue to make hot melt adhesives a more popular form of industrial adhesives on the market today.

The other is not so popular, but the dynamic form of industrial adhesives is a series of waterborne adhesives. These binders are supplied as a premix solution or formulated dry powder to manufacturers and distributors, which must be mixed with water to activate their adhesive quality. Aqueous binders are commonly used as an emulsion mixture which, when vaporized, is converted to a binder material.

Several industries often use water-based adhesives for manufacturing and distribution applications. The paper industry uses this adhesive to bind and bind paper towels, while industries such as beverage bottling companies use these adhesives to periodically expose beer and company-labeled boxes to a certain degree of moisture. There are several advantages to using water-based adhesives. First, water-based adhesives can serve a variety of industries because they have the ability to combine with a variety of substrates. They also remain stable over high humidity and wide temperature range, forming a very durable adhesive. In addition to flexibility and economy and practicality, waterborne adhesives can also be dispersed using a variety of methods, including spraying and dispersing techniques.
