What is the science behind Hot Melt Adhesives and how do they work?
Hot Melt Adhesives are solid when they are at normal temperatures, however they turn into liquid form when they are in the presence of much higher temperatures. After applying hot melt adhesive to a substrate, the liquid cools. As a result the liquid becomes solid providing an excellent durable bond.
Various applications require Hot Melt Adhesives such as the following:
Sign & Display
Labeling of Bottles
