New Hot-Melt Adhesive Shows Application Level

New Hot-Melt AdhesiveShows Application LevelPur-Fect Lok® 34-969A is a new polyurethane, reactive, hot-melt adhesive designed and formulated by National Starch and Chemical Co., Bridgewater, N.J. A manufacturing line operator can see if the application device is dispensing the optimum amount of adhesive by comparing the shade of blue with the ideal shade, said Dan Stauffer, marketing manager, Bondmaster Adhesives, National Starch. A lighter shade would indicate that the bond strength might not be sufficient; a darker shade would represent the application of too much adhesive, showing that production cost is higher than necessary, Stauffer added.Designed for assembly bonding, panel bonding and vinyl laminating, the adhesive provides full bond strength within hours, according to the company.April 2002
