True potential combined with environmental protection:
High-yield hot melt adhesives facilitate perfect results with lower application amounts compared to filled products.
Low processing temperature, trusted quality—this is how the performance of low-temperature hot melt adhesives can be described. Jowat has successfully developed hot melt adhesives which can be processed starting from 99°C.
Sustainability is diverse. This is not just about the use of renewable resources or recycled materials, but about so much more. The reduction of energy costs is also the focus of companies that have committed themselves to environmental and climate protection. Finally, the ongoing optimization of job security also plays a key role. Jowat Green Adhesives contribute to these goals and help companies to make their bonding processes – and thus also part of their everyday business – more sustainable and responsible.
Jowat Low-temp Hot Melt Adhesives
Hot melt adhesives are melted and applied at high temperatures, depending on their composition and the area of application intended for them. Temperatures of up to over 200 degrees Celsius are often the rule. Under these conditions, heating the adhesives is associated with a high energy consumption in the bonding process and a risk of burns at the workplace. A highly heated adhesive can also have a negative impact on sensitive packaging contents such as chocolate.
With low-temp hot melt adhesives such as the Jowat-Toptherm® 851.99, Jowat has developed adhesives that are melted and applied at significantly lower temperatures – without having to accept impairments in the adhesion properties. Another advantage of temperature reduction during processing is the improved thermal oxidation stability of the adhesives used.
When using conventional hot melt adhesives, the processing temperature cannot be reduced on its own: the processing properties and adhesion of the adhesives would suffer as a result. Therefore, the use of an adhesive that convinces at a significantly lower temperature with excellent application and reliable durability is required.
- Energy savings compared to the use of conventional hot melt adhesives
- Suitable for packaging temperature-sensitive products
- Lower risk of burns for users
- Improved stability of the adhesive melt
Jowat High-yield Adhesives
Low-density hot melt adhesives provide several benefits valued by processors around the world. Depending on the application, these adhesives can, for instance, facilitate superior product appearance due to extremely thin bondlines and very smooth surfaces. Even if the bonding does not have to meet special visual requirements, filler-free formulations still impress with high strengths and resource-efficient adhesive application. This not only facilitates premium bonding results, but also protects the environment.
- Reduced adhesive consumption due to filler-free formulation.
- Outstanding strengths facilitated by modern adhesive technologies.
- Premium appearance.
Jowat Anti-Slip Adhesives
Anti-slip coatings are increasingly becoming the solution of choice for pallet stabilization.
The reason for this lies in the growing speed and efficiency with which goods have to be transported from point A to point B. Traditional methods such as the plastic foil wrapping create additional costs, e.g. due to the time required. Those costs can be reduced significantly when directly applying an adhesive during the packaging process. The hot melt adhesive is applied directly to the packaging material or, if necessary, to the goods. Application is either by controlled fiberization or in form of a bead or dotted application. This direct application facilitates a significant reduction in the use of other resources such as stretch foils or shrink foils. Secure transports can therefore be facilitated already in the ongoing manufacturing process.
Anti-slip adhesives provide several benefits: a marked reduction in the use of plastic foils, visibly less waste and thereby lower recycling costs. In addition, no barcodes, logos or other images will be covered with foil. Interest in anti-slip adhesives has been growing rapidly due to statutory framework conditions and decreasing acceptance of plastic packaging in society.
