Small Amount with Significant Effects: Applications of Hot Melt Adhesives to Epidemic Prevention Wet Wipes Aug 2, 2021
Since the epidemic has not stopped in 2021, it is crucial to know how to clean our hands anywhere and at any time to prevent being infected through our mouth or nose!  Wet wipes are especially convenient for us to clean our hands when we can’t find water to wash our hands outside. If children soil their hands, they can be easily cleaned with several wet wipes.Choice of right wet wipes for epidemic preventionThere are plenty of wet wipe products on the market, including baby wipes, general cleaning wet wipes, makeup remover wipes, feminine hygiene wet wipes, hygiene wet wipes, functional wet wipes, etc. Even though these types of wet wipes are generally called wet wipes, cleaning wet wipes are actually very different from hygiene wet wipes.Only the hygiene wet wipes have a sterilization function and can be used to destroy the microorganisms on the surface.In order to provide the sterilization function, disinfectant wet wipes contain alcohol, chlorine-containing disinfectant or preservatives. Wet wipe packages with a lid can prevent invasion of microorganisms after the seal is broken and ensure that volatile alcohol and water are less volatile.Tex Year hot-melt adhesives: Protection of your skin healthIn order to ensure the sealability, secondary use and draw-out wipe features for consumers, the manufacturers bond a PP plastic lid onto the mouth of packages with our hot-melt adhesives.Wet wipes are disposable hygiene products touching our bodies directly, and therefore, all stages in the production process of the wet wipes should be strictly checked. After manufacturers producing wet wipe lids select and use a hot-melt adhesive for their products, their products must meet national requirements and should be non-toxic, odorless and transparent, and the adhesive cannot affect package appearance and wet wipe storage!Tex Year hot-melt adhesives with reliable reputationIf a hot-melt adhesive with bad performance is used in wet wipe products, the whole package appearance could be affected, and the lid may slip off, come off, or the adhesive may ooze. Moreover, during the production process, the adhesive may become stringy, or the lid could come off due to adhesion loss of the adhesive.The hot melt adhesive for TEX YEAR wet wipe lids feature fluorescence, transparency, low odor, environmental friendliness, and non-toxicity.Good initial adhesion/holding properties (holding power at 40 degrees); good operability without stringinessOutstanding high temperature (60℃) and low temperature resistance (-20℃); impressive weather resistance - suitable at high and low temperature and for both summer and winterThe transparency of the product ensures a beautiful appearance of the wet wipe box after adhesion of the lid. The property of the product ensures adhesion to PP, PE, and PET materials.Features of Tex Year wet wipe lid adhesives:Less amount needed to save on cost: The product has strong stickiness and needs less amount than other similar products.Environmental friendliness without odor and smooth construction process: The product has a very light odor and meets the environmental protection standards. Smooth construction processes without stringiness and meeting the automated construction requirements.Strong stickiness and good weather resistance: The product has strong stickiness and can bond wet wipe boxes easily.

Other Applications of Hot Melt Adhesives on Tires
Other Applications of Hot Melt Adhesives on Tires Jun 1, 2021
In addition to marking, hot melt adhesives are applicable to tires in “resistance against puncture and air leakage” of tires and provide important functions to protect personal safety.Flat tire resistanceAccording to the statistics, about 40% of the national traffic accidents are attributable to tire failure, and flat tires represent more than 70% of the tire failure accidents. In Taiwan, one person every 6 minutes dies from flat tires on average and more than 100 thousand people die from puncture at high speed every year! These terrible facts arouse more attention to the safety of tires and higher awareness of people to select safer run-flat tires.From the viewpoint of products, “Run on Flat” indicates tires with blowout prevention functions and precautions rather than “precluding blowout” of tires. There are two types of run-flat tires on the market: traditional run-flat tires (or RSC tires) and self-sealing tires.The self-sealing tires have a layer of hot melt adhesive on the inner wall of the tire. When the sharp object is pulled out, the hole is filled and sealed to avoid air or slow leakage. Even when the driver drives through a sharp object, the technical coating can provide a protective buffering function and prevent the air pressure from releasing suddenly from the hole on the tire.★    We provide special flat tire resistant hot melt adhesive. It is durable to high and low temperature, has outstanding application feature, and releases limited smoke and odor during the operation.★    Our air leakage resistant hot melt adhesive for tires can reduce the risk of tire emergencies and provide reinforced tire blowout-proof functions to avoid puncture and air leakage. Tire labelingQualified tires are made by legal brand manufacturers and undergo simulation experiments and safety tests before leaving the factory. Three required elements of fuel efficiency, wet grip, and rolling noise levels are indicated on the label of tested and qualified tires. They are useful indicators showing the buffering, gripping, and operating performance of a tire.Picture★    We provide special tire labeling adhesive with outstanding surface stickiness at low temperature and excellent application performance.★    The tire labeling adhesive ensures clear and legible tire labels with smooth surface. It is durable during storage and under transport conditions. The chemical property of the adhesive enables strengthened adhesion of the label. We provide different formulas for summer and winter.

Who is the winner in the market? MPO or EVA Hot Melt Adhesive? May 3, 2021
MPO and EVA series hot melt adhesives, what is the difference?TEX YEAR leads you to this century competition and helps you clarify everything once and for all.Comparison of advantagesEthylene vinyl acetate (EVA)Metallocene polyolefin (MPO)Commonly used basic polymerWider operation temperature range than EVAThe type and quantity of wax and resin controlling the clotting time and stickinessLighter color and less odorFiller allowed under specific conditionsGood thermal stability Quick operation setting Lower densityWe have complete EVA production lines for our “TEX YEAR” products. The adhesive strips and packaging glues, in particular, are in a leading position in the industry.Products in response to the development trend of the international and domestic markets are also produced under the brand name “TEX YEAR.”Comparison of propertiesMPO hot melt adhesive - comparison of properties│TEX YEARThe Proportion of MPO and EVA is 0.90 and 0.98, respectively. Though the weight of both adhesives are same, MPO is bigger, has higher mass and, thus, more usable adhesive amount, making it more advantageous in this respect.When comparing under the same conditions, the experiment proved that MPO hot melt adhesive can be applied to 4 more pieces than EVA!!Total application weight: 10gramApplication thickness/piece: 40mmOperation temperature: 160℃~180℃Comparison of strengthsIn fact, both EVA and MPO hot melt adhesives can meet the strength requirements of the customers. However, the specific weight, density, and volume of the MPO adhesive as well as the same strength with less MPO than EVA enable a saving of 10~20% use amount of the MPO adhesive in comparison with the traditional EVA adhesive. This is obviously an outstanding advantage of the MPO hot melt adhesive.Comparison of shapesMPO hot melt adhesive - comparison of shapes│TEX YEARIn addition to the properties and advantages, neat and clean shapes are required to make the first impression. This is more the focus of MPO than EVA. The arrangement of the MPO hot melt adhesive is more neat and tidy. It is relative not stringy and, thus, can produce more beautifully shaped finished products to sell at a higher price.Comparison of durabilityMPO hot melt adhesives have much higher stability than EVA. This is demonstrated in the following experiment.During a prolonged durability test at 180℃ for 24, 48, 72, 96, and 148 hours, the MPO series products show a thermal stability much better than EVA as illustrated in the figure below. The yellowing effect of the MPO adhesive in the aging process is much lighter than EVA. What an outstanding performance of MPO!Thermal stability comparison testMPO hot melt adhesive - comparison of thermal stability│TEX YEARThe MPO hot melt adhesive seems to become the only focus after a series of 5 tests, but, in fact, the EVA hot melt adhesive also performs very well in many respects. It surely has special advantages and features to stand on the top of similar products for such a long time.The EVA hot melt adhesive has been on the market for many years. It is highly acceptable, has a wide range of applications, and is sold at a lower price. Most important, it does not require repurchase or replacement of equipment or resetting of parameters. It has better compatibleness than the MPO hot melt adhesive. Honestly, both of them have their own advantages. It is suggested to select the products depending on your requirements to ensure choosing most suitable products that can produce the best results.We have complete production lines and professional supports for our TEX YEAR products.
