Applications & Uses

Instructions for Use
  • Application temperature: 150°F - 200°F.
  • The structure of the substrates and working conditions will influence adhesive bonding. Adhesive trials with substrates under customer conditions are necessary. Due to the high softening point and melting temperature quick melting and application of adhesive is recommended. Avoiding too long heat exposure of adhesive in the pre-melter prevents from thermal degradation and decreasing of bonding quality.
  • Remarks: Prolonged exposure to high temperature should be avoided since this may be lower the bonding performance. Usually, this adhesive is not suitable for plastics containing monomeric plasticizers: plasticizer migration can cause degradation of the adhesive film. Applications like this have to be tested for compatibility.
  • Cleaning instructions: While the product is hot a preliminary cleaning should be done by scraping with a spatula.
