Shop Hot Melt Adhesive Cleaners to Keep Your Equipment Running Smoothly
Hot melt cleaners are an important part of maintaining smooth running hot melt systems. They can help improve precision and quality, increase machine life, save on replacement parts, and reduce equipment downtime.
There are two categories of hot melt cleaners: surface cleaners and system cleaners.
Hot Melt Surface Cleaners
Surface cleaners are used to clean the exterior of hot melt systems or other machine surfaces, removing adhesive residue, grease, and grime. These hot melt cleaners come in spray bottles for quick and easy usage. They typically use mild formulas without harsh chemicals.
System cleaners are used to clean the interior of hot melt systems. Often called "hot melt purge", this type of cleaner comes in either a liquid or solid material that is added directly to the melter during maintenance. As it flows through the system it purges contaminants, adhesive buildup, and char from the hot melt tank, hoses, and guns.
Cleaning PUR hot melt systems requires specialized hot melt cleaner that is different from cleaners used for traditional hot melts such as EVA and metallocene. Henkel Technomelt offers excellent PUR cleaners.
