Apart from securing packages against slipping, adhesives also protect goods against damage such as scratches or breaking during transport or storage.
Jowat-Toptherm® hot melt adhesives, for instance, are applied as spacer beads on the underside of roof tiles, floor tiles or also glass panes. These adhesives are characterised by special properties: A fast build-up of strength and high pressure resistance to ensure that they keep their shape under the load of several roof or floor tiles stacked on top of each other. In addition, they have a good adhesion to the underside of the carrier substrate but do not leave marks on the materials underneath them.
Adhesives used for this application so far have been based on polyamide. However, they only have low resistance to thermal oxidation. This leads to massive contamination, significant maintenance work, and generally a high susceptibility to disruptions in the process. Jowat-Toptherm® 845.10 is based on innovative raw materials with superior resistance to oxidation. By using Jowat-Toptherm® 845.10, tile manufacturers can therefore increase machine efficiency and reduce maintenance costs as well as downtimes to a minimum.
