Polyamide Hot Melt Overview

Polyamide hot melt is a unique formulation in the hot melt industry. It is typically more expensive than traditional EVA glue stick products but offers a wide range of benefits that other hot melt formulations cannot. 

Benefits of Polyamide Hot Melt

Polyamide hot melt offers superior heat and cold resistance. It also offers superior chemical resistance compared to other glue stick types.

These features make it a great substitute for adhesives like Epoxy or Acrylics in some manufacturing settings. Polyamide sets quickly, requires no mixing and has much less odor than many other adhesives. Hotmelt.com also carries polyamide glue sticks in a wide range of colors perfect if you are trying to blend in the color of the adhesive with the substrates being bonded.

  • Flexible open-time from 2 seconds to 2 minues
  • Adhesion Range great for paper, wood, metals, plastics, and pvc.
  • Great for high performance applications.
  • Resistance to high heat and low temperatures.
  • Offers chemical resistance to grease, oils, plastisizers, hydraulic fluids, acids and alkalis.
