TOP TIP #10

WHEN TO TEST FOR ADHESION ON YOUR PRODUCTS 


Do you often wonder how long it takes your packaging hot melt to reach maximum bond strength?

 

Hot melts take time to reach full adhesion. After they are applied, our testing has shown that the full strength forms at around 15 minutes after the initial bond is formed, so make sure when you test the bond strength on your products, you have waited at least this time beforehand.

 

We've created a full technical whitepaper on on this including our laboratory testing. If this is something you'd like to have a look at, click the link below!
