Application with UV curing hotmelt

TECHNOMELT UV – New standards in coating and sealing

Henkel’s innovative UV hotmelts belong to the group of radiation-curable adhesives. They are solid, mono component and are processed at temperatures of about 100°C. Furthermore, they contain acrylates and photoinitiators, which are activated by UV light to form polymers. TECHNOMELT UV hotmelts fully cure in fractions of a second and can thus be processed immediately. Being VOC and solvent free, the UV-curing adhesives are the way forward.
