Schaetti Supplies Hotmelt Line To Sympatex Licensee

Schaetti AG, Switzerland, has delivered a complete hotmelt plant to Paka, a Korea-based spinning, weaving, bleaching and outfitting company. Paka will use the hotmelt line to produce coated membrane films under license by Sympatex, a Germany-based manufacturer of breathable waterproof and windproof membrane films for sports clothing, shoes and other high-tech products. Paka is the first Asian company to be licensed by Sympatex.

Schaetti developed the hotmelt machinery for Paka's product needs. Features of the equipment include: precise web tensioning and centering guides for thin and sensitive substrates; a gravure roller system for minimum coating thicknesses of 5 micrometers; and a processing speed of up to 100 meters per minute.
