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.

Tape manufacturing process and classification
Tape manufacturing process and classification Apr 1, 2021
Adhesive tape is the most commonly used packaging and sealing tool and office stationery. It is packaged for shipment or office paper sticking, paper tape decorating notebooks, etc. Through adhesive tape, the purpose of close adhesion and decoration is achieved.The earliest adhesives were extracted from animals or plants. In the nineteenth century, rubber was the main component of adhesives. In modern times, various polymers are widely used to make glue.In industrial design, different tapes also have their own unique functions such as lamination, anti-counterfeiting, and intelligent identification.Tape manufacturing processAfter the film is blown, the film is applied to the coating machine to add hot melt glue, water glue or other adhesives. In this process, the adhesive is selected according to the required viscosity and purpose of the tape. After the application is completed, the tape is ready!Film blowing → Gluing → Rewinding → RewindingTape manufacturing process The structure of the tapeThe general structure of the tape mainly includes adhesive, backing, bottom paper (or called release paper, release liner), as well as the invisible surface treatment agent of the substrate, which is the most basic and common. The common types of substrates for pressure-sensitive adhesives include plastic film (including synthetic paper), paper, cloth, metal, etc., or a composite substrate that combines any two or more of the aforementioned materials; common The types of tapes include single-sided tape, double-sided tape, foam tape, OPP tape, aluminum foil tape, automotive cloth baseline tape, etc.Classification of tapeDestructive Tape/Adhesive for Sealing Tape│Provide all kinds of adhesives for express bag sealing and packaging sealing, which can quickly produce adhesive force. It can be applied to express bags of various printing materials and has good heat and cold resistance.Temporary fixing glue with weak adhesion│With indoor hooks, product auxiliary instruction labels, etc., it provides weak adhesion, good cohesion, no oil leakage, no glue residue, and good retention.Adhesive for paper tape│Coating 10um can reach a peel strength of 300-600g/in. There is no residual glue during peeling, and it will not cause damage to paper and books. It is widely used for pasting paper, beautifying, and decorating.Adhesives for anti-counterfeiting tapes│The colloid has low odor, does not contain any solvents, does not require drying time, so the process efficiency is high, and it is friendly to the production environment and employees. In terms of coating process, each coating weight can reach 40-50g/m2 at a time.Tex Year is committed to the development of adhesives used in the tape industry, and develops a series of environmentally friendly pressure-sensitive adhesive products for the tape industry, providing adhesives required for various characteristics, including hot-melt pressure-sensitive adhesives and water-based emulsion pressure-sensitive adhesives, UV pressure sensitive adhesive series, etc.

Select it to Find Out How Good PVC Plastic Floors Are
Select it to Find Out How Good PVC Plastic Floors Are Mar 15, 2021
Plastic floors are more popular in the international market. It is now a new lightweight floor material in renovations and has a wider range of applications.For example, plastic floor tiles are commonly seen in many public buildings. The widely used plastic floors are made from polyurethane and most suitable for laying on outdoor sports grounds.PVC is a kind of plastic. PVC floor is one of the types of plastic floors, but may people call it a plastic floor. PVC floors with adhesive on the back side are very convenient for end users. They only need to tear off the release paper to adhere and assemble the floor. This is very suitable to the fast-paced life nowadays and consumers can do this immediately when they want to.Comparison: Ordinary vs. Adhesive PVC floor tiles  The glues commonly used for PVC floors on the market are classified into three types that are applied in different processes.1. Super glue: This a solvent-based glue containing toluene. It must be applied in ventilation environment and a glue drying process is needed to produce stickiness after volatilization.2. Water-based pressure sensitive adhesive: This is an environment-friendly water-based glue and does not contain toluene. The stickiness is produced when applying pressure and rework is carried out easily. However, immersing in water for a long period of time may damage the stickiness.3. Hot Melt Pressure Sensitive Adhesive: This is an environment-friendly hot melt glue and does not contain toluene. It is waterproof and the stickiness is produced when applying pressure. This is also suitable for DIY construction.Selecting hot melt pressure sensitive adhesive and its effect on PVC floor adhesivesThe PVC floor is comprised of PVC plastics, calcium carbonate, plasticizer and other additives. Environment-friendly plasticizer is added to improve the flexibility of PVC floor tiles and make them softer. However, plasticizer has a physical phenomenon of leakage and moves gradually from the inside to the surface as time goes on. As a result, the glue of the hot melt pressure sensitive adhesive will be solved and its cohesive will be damaged more seriously with time of storage, leading to spilling of the adhesive under heavy pressure and movement of some adhesive when the release paper is torn off.Once the stickiness of the hot melt pressure sensitive adhesive becomes worse, the angle may lift when it is stuck on. Hence, selecting the correct adhesive is one of the key elements for PVC floors.To solve the above-mentioned problem, our R&D personnel develop a hot melt pressure sensitive adhesive with outstanding cohesion and substantially improved property to overcome the loss of stickiness due to leakage of plasticizer and ensure the adhesive of the self-sticking PVC floor remains cohesive and sticky after storage for a long period of time. This is a product that customers can use safely and comfortably.We have had our technical strength and strong R&D team for more than 40 years, and provide targeted development services to meet the requirements of the customer. We specialize in the areas of hot melt pressure sensitive adhesive for PVC floor tiles, UV matte coating materials, and other adhesive application requirements.With our strength of solution, we help Top 100 companies implement their production processes and meet their production requirements for PVC floor tile adhesive and surface scratch and wear resistant UV matte coating materials.
