Packaging Hot Melt Adhesives

Types of Packaging Hot Melt Adhesives

Adhesives are designed to provide strong and reliable bonds for packaging materials. Here are some common types of packaging hot melt adhesives:

  1. Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) Hot Melts:

    EVA hot melt adhesives are widely used in packaging applications. They offer good adhesion to a variety of substrates, including paperboard, corrugated cardboard, and coated stocks. EVA hot melts provide fast setting times and good bond strength, making them suitable for high-speed packaging lines.

  2. Metallocene Polyolefin (MPO) Hot Melts:

    MPO hot melt adhesives are a type of metallocene-based adhesive. They offer excellent adhesion to a wide range of substrates, including plastics, foils, and paper. MPO adhesives provide high heat resistance, good flexibility, and strong bonds, making them suitable for applications requiring durability and resistance to elevated temperatures.

  3. Pressure-Sensitive Hot Melts:

    Pressure-sensitive hot melt adhesives (PSHMs) are formulated to provide instant tack and bond strength at room temperature. They offer aggressive adhesion to various packaging materials, such as paper, film, and foil. PSHMs are commonly used in applications like carton sealing, label application, and tape manufacturing.

  4. Polyurethane (PUR) Hot Melts:

    Polyurethane hot melt adhesives are known for their exceptional bonding strength and flexibility. They offer excellent adhesion to a wide range of substrates, including difficult-to-bond materials like plastics, metals, and foams. PUR hot melts provide high heat resistance and can be used for applications such as sealing and bonding in packaging.

  5. Polyolefin Hot Melts:

    Polyolefin hot melt adhesives are based on polyethylene or polypropylene. They offer good adhesion to various packaging materials, including paper, cardboard, and plastics. Polyolefin hot melts are commonly used in case and carton sealing applications, as well as for bonding packaging inserts.

  6. APAO Hot Melts:

    Amorphous Poly-Alpha-Olefin (APAO) hot melt adhesives provide good adhesion to a wide range of substrates, including paper, cardboard, and plastics. They offer excellent heat resistance and can withstand high-temperature environments. APAO hot melts are often used for packaging applications like sealing, bonding, and laminating.
     

Advantages Of Packaging with Hot Melt Adhesives

  1. Strong and Reliable Bonds:

    Hot melt adhesives provide strong and reliable bonds, ensuring that packaging materials stay securely sealed during transportation, storage, and handling. These adhesives offer excellent adhesion to a wide range of substrates, including paper, cardboard, plastics, foils, and more.

  2. Fast Setting Time:

    Hot melt adhesives have a rapid setting time, meaning they cool and solidify quickly after application. This allows for efficient and continuous packaging operations, especially on high-speed production lines. The fast setting time enables faster processing and increases productivity.

  3. Increased Productivity:

    Hot melt adhesive application is typically automated, allowing for high-speed and precise bonding. It eliminates the need for drying or curing time associated with other adhesive types, resulting in faster production cycles. Additionally, hot melt adhesives do not require mixing or preparation, reducing setup and cleanup time.

  4. Versatility:

    Hot melt adhesives can bond a wide range of packaging materials, including porous and non-porous substrates. They can securely bond materials such as paper, cardboard, plastics, foils, and fabrics. This versatility makes hot melt adhesives suitable for various packaging applications, from carton sealing to case and tray forming.

  5. Resistance to Temperature and Moisture:

    Hot melt adhesives offer good resistance to temperature variations and moisture. They maintain their bond strength even under challenging conditions, such as exposure to hot or cold environments, humidity, or moisture. This ensures the integrity and durability of the packaging during storage and transportation.

  6. Environmental Benefits:

    Hot melt adhesives are considered environmentally friendly compared to solvent-based adhesives. They have low or no volatile organic compound (VOC) content and do not release harmful fumes during application or curing. This makes them safer for workers and reduces environmental impact.
     

Packaging Tapes v.s Packaging Hot Melt Adhesive

Packaging Tapes are pre-adhesive tapes that provide an immediate bond, while Packaging Hot Melt Adhesives are applied in a liquid form and solidify to form a strong bond. Both methods offer advantages depending on the specific packaging requirements, such as speed, bond strength, and versatility.
