The glue and hotmelt industry uses refined paraffins and micro-crystalline waxes for the manufacture of hot melt adhesives.
These “hot glues” are thermoplastic materials used in various applications such as packaging, book binding, assembly of wooden furniture and toys, air filters, etc.
Low temperature hot melt adhesives are applied at temperatures of 120 ° C, making them ideal for bonding electronics, plastics, fabrics and other heat sensitive materials.
High temperature hot melt adhesives are applied at a temperature of 190 ° C, which generally ensures a stronger bond.
