High Volume ​​Hot Melt Adhesive: Versatile and Quick Dry

The majority of converting companies want customers to do one thing: purchase previous products. While that is ideal for the converter, it often puts the manufacturer in a compromised position. Production teams functioning around these constraints isn’t ideal. GDI Adhesives aims to dynamically change this inefficient industry practice for the better.

What Is Hot Melt Adhesive?

Hot melt adhesive is any polymer based glue that can be applied in a molten state. It is composed of three elements: polymers, resin, and plasticizer. Polymers provide strength and flexibility, resin provides wetness and adhesion, and the plasticizer element allows the adhesive to be easily applied.

Why Hot Melt Adhesive?

Hot melt adhesive dries quickly, has a long shelf life, and is cost-effective. It can be used to bond a large variety of materials, and work on both porous and non-porous surfaces. Hot melt adhesives have excellent water and moisture resistance. They can be melted down using heat (hence the name), and easily dispensed in a controlled manner. They can be reheated and reused, which is unique compared with many other adhesives. Hot melt adhesive does not contain solvents, so it is considered non-hazardous and eco-friendly. It often contains little to no VOCs.
