Adhesives types

Adhesives types

We offer the following adhesive types:

1C polyurethane adhesives

Our 1C-PUR adhesives have a 100% solid content. The 1C prepolymer reacts and cross-links with the moisture from the air and the substrate to be bonded. Our adhesives achieve a broad adhesion spectrum for a wide range of substrates in combination with high strength values and are used in various industries (e.g. wood and furniture industry, construction industry, sandwich and panel industry, insulation industry, caravan + transportation etc.). The 1C-PUR adhesives offer the following benefits:

  • High temperature resistance and very good moisture resistance of the bond due to cross-linking
  • Foaming of the product enables the compensation of uneven substrate surfaces
  • Products are adjustable in terms of viscosity, cross-linking speed & foaming degree
  • Can be processed manually or via roller, nozzle or spray application

Dispersion adhesives

Our PVAc and EVA dispersion adhesives are used in various applications, such as in the wood and furniture industry or in the paper and packaging industry. They are available as one- or two-component systems and comply with the standards DIN EN 204 and DIN EN 14257 / WATT91. Our dispersions offer the following benefits:

  • Adapted to the most diverse requirements
  • Highest product safety through strength and heat resistance
  • Bonding of various media is possible, such as wood, high-pressure laminates, foils, vinyl and many more

EVA hotmelts

Our EVA hotmelt adhesives are used in many applications: whether in the wood and furniture industry for edge gluing or wrapping or in the graphic industry for book binding. You will find the right adhesive for every application. Our adhesives offer the following benefits:

  • Very high strength
  • High initial strengths allow fast processing times
  • Excellent adhesion
  • High thermal stability
  • Harmless to health
  • Ecologically sustainable

Pressure-sensitive adhesives (PSA)

Pressure-sensitive adhesives are permanent adhesive systems based on synthetic rubbers (styrene block copolymers; SIS, SBS, SEBS) for permanent and resealable bonds. They retain their tack even after cooling and are particularly suitable for substrates that are difficult to bond. The pressure-sensitive adhesives are used in transport and shipping packaging, labeling, adhesive tapes, auxiliary assembly adhesives, as well as in the manufacture of mattresses and upholstery. The pressure sensitive adhesives offer the following benefits:

  • Very high initial stack
  • Excellent flow behavior
  • Flexible adhesive joint
  • Homogeneous and fast melting
  • Suitable for common processing methods (nozzle, roller or spin spray application)

Casein adhesives

Casein adhesives are based on proteins and are often used in the labelling of glass bottles. They produce a rapidly increasing adhesion when cooled, are ice water resistant and easy to remove with pure water.
Our casein adhesives offer you the following benefits:

  • Uninterrupted production processes in bottling plants
  • Excellent washability of reusable packaging: Label and adhesive can be removed without residue
  • No insoluble compounds are formed in the caustic solution in bottle washers and there is no foam formation due to adhesive residues in the caustic solution
  • Ecological, does not cause skin irritation or allergic reactions
  • Suitable for low and high speed labeling machines
  • Excellent adhesion on wet and cold containers and is resistant to condensation
  • Resistant to atmospheric changes, e.g. temperature fluctuations, moisture, solar radiation
  • Does not cause damage to equipment parts and does not oxidize
  • Provides an ideal appearance of the bonded product

PO hotmelts

Like EVA-based hotmelt adhesives, PO hotmelt adhesives have very high strengths. A major advantage is the high heat resistance, as required in critical areas of the furniture industry (e.g. kitchen furniture). But these adhesives are also used in the packaging industry. Our adhesives offer the following benefits:

  • High initial strengths allow fast processing times
  • Excellent adhesion
  • High thermal stability
  • Harmless to health
  • Ecologically sustainable

Reactive PUR hotmelt adhesives

Our reactive PUR hotmelt adhesives have a 100% solids content and maintain their physical strength upon cooling followed by chemical crosslinking with moisture from air and the workpiece to be bonded. They enable a highly efficient process control and the open times are variable and can be adapted to your individual requirements. The performance spectrum and the special property profile of polyurethane hotmelts are used in various industries (e.g. automotive, wood + furniture industry, filter industry, abrasives industry, sandwich and panel industry, flat lamination, technical textiles, caravan + transportation etc.) Reactive PUR hotmelt adhesives offer the following benefits:

  • Broad adhesion spectrum for a wide range of substrates
  • Soft and flexible adhesive joint after crosslinking
  • High initial strength
  • Very good temperature resistance
  • High resistance to washing and hydrolysis
  • Can be used in a wide variety of application processes (roller application, spray application, nozzle application, etc.)

Starch adhesives

Our starch adhesives can be used for labelling dry glass packaging. They are particularly suitable for low speed applications where a longer setting time is required. 
Starch adhesives offer the following benefits:

  • Stable quality
  • Good adhesion to cellulose and many porous printing substrates
  • Insoluble in oils and lipids
  • Non-toxic and biodegradable
  • Heat resistant
