Application with non-reactive hotmelt

Non-reactive Hotmelts – a new level of processing

Non-reactive hotmelts are frequently used for edge banding and profile wrapping, flat lamination, assembly and sealing processes. Under the TECHNOMELT brand, Henkel is offering non-reactive hotmelts on EVA (Ethyl Vinyl Acetate), polyolefin (APAO) as well as polyamide (PA) base. In general, these thermoplastic hotmelts differ in terms of their adhesion and heat resistance. The clean processing, coupled with high machine speeds, fast setting and excellent aging behaviour make them first choice for furniture and building components.

Edge banding with non-reactive hotmelts

Henkel’s edge banding hotmelt adhesives, which are available in granule or cartridge form, are used for bonding of all common edge materials and processing on automatic edge banding machines:

  • Machine speeds of 10 – 100 m / min.
  • High bond strength
  • Heat resistance of up to 120 °C depending on type of adhesive
  • Clean processing
