All Best Adhesives for Packaging
Tape is often associated with packaging, and though it may work for a very low volume of packages, once you move to a moderate to large number of packages, tape becomes increasingly inefficient and costly. Tape can disrupt your workflow which ultimately costs you a lot in terms of productivity. It also is sensitive to temperature and the bond can easily be compromised. Hot melt will result in a stroner bond and better-looking package, all while saving you money.
Hot melt adhesives can bond small detailed cartons to heavy duty wraparound cases. It's perfect for bonding all types of packaging because the variety of formulas available make fitting every application need easy. Hot melt not only has a high heat resistance, but there are also formulas that can withstand temperatures as low as -40 degrees C and humid environments. Packaging comes in a wide array of materials, but even that does not effect the use of hot melt as it can firmly adhere to all types of paper, board and plastics along with various other substrates. Hot melt products are availble in bulk making it cost effective.
