APAO Hot Melt in Bulk, Sticks and Slugs

Amorphous Poly-Alpha-Olefin (APAO / APO) bulk hot melt is a non-crystalline adhesive that is soft, tacky and flexible. APAO hot melts offer a long open time from 30 seconds to 4 minutes. Their low polarity makes them ideal for bonding polyolefin substrates like PP (polypropylene), PE (polyethylene) and PET (polyethylene terephthalate) along with non-woven materials. APAO bulk hot melt offers a higher heat resistance and increased fuel, acid or chemical resistance compared to an EVA hot melt. APAO adhesives offer a better adhesion in low temperatures than a EVA. Many APAO hot melt adhesives are sprayable, which allow you to cover a large area without a problem, great for product assembly applications.

Hotmelt.com is happy to help you find the correct adhesive for your application. Manufacturers don't always state what type of hot melt adhesive their formulas are making it difficult to find an APAO. If you are thinking an APAO is correct for your applications call us with questions 877-933-3343.
