Hot melt adhesives make assembling mattresses quicker and easier. Because they are easy to handle, many manufacturers use adhesives for joining foam around mattress springs, attaching cushioning foam and insulation to the interior of the mattress body and keeping pillow top cushioning and upholstery fabrics in place.
Fugitive glue, also called gummy glue, credit card glue, e-z release glue, or booger glue is a low-tack adhesive that produces a removable non-permanent joint. The type of bond it produces is temporary in nature and is intended to hold two pieces of material together through the duration of folding and gluing operations. Fugitive glue is designed to release and will not cause damage to either one of the separated substrates.
Adhesives find their way into almost all parts of a mattress. Mattress assembly primarily utilizes hot melt, water-based adhesive, or solvent-based adhesives. Mattress manufacturers use adhesives for securing pillow tops, cushioning foam, joining slabs and blocks of foam around spring systems, adhering fabrics, fibers, and insulation materials to foam.
Polyurethane hot melt, commonly called PUR hot melt, is an adhesive that is heated and dispensed from a cartridge or slug, unlike traditional hot melt which is in stick or pellet form. PUR is also unique because it solidifies through moisture in the air to form a super-strong bond that will not re-melt.
If applying fugitive glue by hand is costing you too much time and money, it may be time to upgrade to a bulk tank pneumatic dispensing system. The Infinity Bond EasyMelt Benchtop is a great option and offers some big long-term advantages.
