For highest demands in edgebanding: the new PUR hot melt Jowatherm Reaktant® 608.00.

The new PUR hot melt from Jowat facilitates outstanding polyurethane bonds with the superior visual appearance of edgebanded wood-based panels known from laser technology.

Detmold, April 13, 2016 – Jowat has developed a new unfilled PUR hot melt adhesive for highest requirements in edgebanding. Formulated with modern raw materials from the polyurethane chemistry and based on Jowat’s decades-long experience with edgebanding adhesives, Jowatherm-Reaktant® 608.00 fulfils the high expectations on edgebanding in modern furniture manufacturing.

A translucent bondline, broad spectrum of adhesion, excellent thermal stability and high initial strength, paired with significantly reduced adhesive application for almost invisible joints, make this product the top choice whenever requirements in furniture manufacturing are extremely challenging.

In premium furniture manufacturing, the value of the end product is more and more determined by the quality of the edgebanded parts. Demands on the adhesives and the adhesive technology have increased dramatically since laser technology and the so-called “zero bondline” were introduced. Moisture-curing PUR hot melts are processed whenever high resistance to heat, water, steam, solvents or cleaners is required. The new Jowatherm-Reaktant® 608.00/01 launched by Jowat is a product that perfectly meets all visual and technical challenges in premium edgebanding.

The processing characteristics and flowing properties of the new Jowatherm-Reaktant® 608.00 impress not only on automatic edgebanders with roller applicators, but are also suitable for slot nozzles for an even finer spread and reduced amounts.
The new PUR hot melt is also available in a pure white version as Jowatherm-Reaktant® 608.01.

Processors can rely on the extensive industrial experience of the Jowat Product Managers and Application Consultants for further information.
