Jowat adhesives for the mattress manufacture

Good mattresses are the basis of a restful sleep and regeneration. Adhesives play a major role in the manufacturing process of mattresses. In addition to bonding the different substrates, adhesives also help increasing comfort and health and therefore support a good night’s sleep. Jowat SE supplies customers with a broad range of innovative products for all processes in the manufacture of mattresses. Besides higher expectations regarding their long term resistance, the adhesives are easy to process, even while the technological requirements and material diversity are increasing. Jowat develops thermoplastic and reactive hot melts and solvent-based adhesives, tailored for each specific application and used successfully worldwide.

Upholstery materials for mattresses are exposed to enormous stress in everyday use. In order to considerably improve the resistance of these finely-woven fabrics, they are laminated or coated on the underside with Jowat-Toptherm® 239.75. Reactive polyurethane hot melt adhesives such as Jowatherm-Reaktant® 630.20 allow to laminate incontinence sheets that require boiling resistance. The strict requirements for the sterilisation processes are fulfilled. Pocket innersprings provide high comfort and are especially impressive due to their bounce back elasticity. Jowatherm® 261.65 is used to support this comfort and guarantees that it remains unchanged in daily use, despite the high stress on the bondlines.

Foam lamination, for instance in the manufacture of foam mattresses with different foam layers, requires particularly soft and flexible adhesives. Compared to dispersion adhesives, Jowatherm-Reaktant® 609.20 facilitates a considerably faster built-up of strength and therefore a more efficient manufacture with low energy requirements.A high quality and comfort standard needs a soft and permanent bond during spring mattress assembly with different requirements for the adhesive depending on the mattress design and the specific process. Jowat-Toptherm® 232.30 meets the requirements for automated handling processes, such as a fast build-up of strength to resist the tensions in the bondline and a wide range of adhesion to all materials used in the mattresses. All hot melt adhesives for mattress manufacture fulfil the requirements of the Oeko-Tex® 100 Standard, LGA, IKEA and Blue Angel certificates.

EVA hot melts are well-established adhesives in the assembly of pocket innersprings. These adhesives are characterised by excellent performance in fast assembly processes, bridging the tensions and ensuring a permanent bonding of the rows of pocket innerspring. Jowatherm® 261.65 has been developed especially for this application.
