 We have spent a lot of time chatting about EVA hot melts and PUR's, but what about metallocene hot melt glues? 

010.jpgMetallocene hot melt glues have some added benefits for the case, tray, and carton sealing industries.

Not only do they reduce application weights, but they provide equipment maintenance savings because they eliminate issues with charring and degradation. They also minimize stringing, and odor issues that are common with other hot melt glue.

 Benefits of Metallocene Hot Melts 

We have several metallocene hot melts available, with formulas that vary depending on the specific requirements of the application.

Here are some of the main features of these glues:

Features Benefits
Superior Adhesion Reduces application weights, produced less waste, faster setting speed
Thermal Stability Viscosity stability, eliminates down time
Superior runability Reduced overall usage for savings up to 35%, adheres to wide range of substrates
Equipment-friendly Lowers maintenance costs, eliminates gelling and charring
Low Odor Allows for safe and user-friendly work environment
