When the application calls for a strong bond and an attractive finish, Adheco has the solution. The Toronto-based company carries Hot Melt Adhesives from industry-leading manufacturer 3M. These adhesives offer advantages to a range of applications, from detail work to high volume manual production.
Fast and simple application: Hot Melt Adhesives can be applied quickly and conveniently. The 100 per cent solids thermoplastic resins liquify when heated. When applied to a surface using 3M’s Hot Melt Applicators, they cool, harden and reach their bond strength within seconds. This enables users to move assemblies immediately upon application, eliminating the need for clamps, fixturing or additional drying time and energy. The adhesive’s quick-stick nature also helps to speed up operations.
A strong bond: These adhesives are as strong as mechanical fasteners and sealing tapes. They often exceed 100 psi shear strength, offering a robust and reliable hold.
An attractive finish: Hot melts are virtually invisible, improving the overall esthetics of the finished product.
Versatile: Hot Melt Adhesives can stick to a wide range of surfaces, including foams, corrugated cardboard, fabrics, plastics, particle board and light-gauge metals. They are ideal for use in a range of industries, from furniture, woodworking, transportation and electrical, to packaging, product assembly and more.
3M Hot Melt Adhesives are an environmentally friendly and virtually odourless bonding solution. They are also available in a sprayable version, which is ideal for bonding in bulk.
