Thermoplastic PO hot melts are used to a steadily increasing degree in assembly bondings and flat lamination for car interiors. One reason for the growing demand for this type of adhesive is the block-free, storage-stable precoating of reel material. Therefore, the manufacturing efficiency is significantly improved by enabling more rationalised production steps. The final strength is reached shortly after the parts bonded with PO adhesive have cooled down.
The continuously growing diversity of new matrix material combinations like NF-PP is highly challenging in bonding, especially on surfaces with low surface tension.
With Jowat-Toptherm® 238.80, Jowat succeeded in developing a thermoplastic PO hot melt adhesive that is characterised by an extremely high heat resistance and a very wide range of adhesion to materials like PP and NFPP.
In a comparison test, Jowat-Toptherm® 238.80 reached heat resistance values that are by approx. 20 – 30 °C higher than those of other PO hot melts available on the market (measured by increasing heat test).
Jowat-Toptherm® 238.80 is a precoating adhesive for flat lamination of textiles and foils that are used for lamination in pressing or vacuum deepdrawing methods. For all assembly bondings like clips, retainers and edgefolding.
