Unveiling the Differences: PUR Edge Sealing vs. General Hot Melt Adhesive Edge Sealing
Unveiling the Differences: PUR Edge Sealing vs. General Hot Melt Adhesive Edge Sealing Mar 20, 2024
Unveiling the Difference: PUR Edge Sealing vs. General Hot Melt Adhesive Edge SealingIn the realm of woodworking, edge sealing is a critical step to ensure the longevity and aesthetics of furniture, cabinetry, and other wood-based products. Among the various edge sealing options available, PUR (Polyurethane Reactive) and general hot melt adhesives stand out as popular choices. But what sets them apart, and which one is the superior option for your woodworking projects? Let's delve into the comparison. Strength and DurabilityPUR Edge Sealing:PUR adhesive forms an incredibly strong and durable bond. Its chemical reaction with moisture creates a cross-linked polymer structure, resulting in a bond that withstands heat, moisture, and chemicals exceptionally well. This durability ensures that edge-sealed surfaces maintain their integrity over time, even under challenging conditions.General Hot Melt Adhesive:While general hot melt adhesives offer decent bonding strength, they typically lack the durability of PUR adhesives. They may soften or weaken when exposed to heat or moisture, potentially compromising the integrity of the edge-sealed surface over time.Flexibility and VersatilityPUR Edge Sealing:PUR adhesive is known for its flexibility and versatility. It adheres well to a variety of materials, including wood, plastic, and metal, making it suitable for a wide range of woodworking applications. Additionally, PUR adhesive remains flexible after curing, allowing for natural expansion and contraction of wood, which helps prevent edge banding from cracking or delaminating.General Hot Melt Adhesive:While general hot melt adhesives are also versatile, they may not offer the same level of flexibility as PUR adhesives. They can become brittle over time, especially when exposed to temperature fluctuations, which may lead to cracking or delamination of edge-sealed surfaces.Application and Cure TimePUR Edge Sealing:Applying PUR adhesive requires specialized equipment, such as a PUR hot melt glue gun or roller. Once applied, PUR adhesive typically has a longer open time compared to general hot melt adhesives, allowing for precise positioning and adjustment before curing. However, PUR adhesive may have a longer cure time, requiring adequate time for full bond strength to develop.General Hot Melt Adhesive:General hot melt adhesives are easier to apply and have a shorter cure time compared to PUR adhesives. They can be applied using standard hot melt glue guns and cure rapidly upon cooling. However, the shorter open time may limit the window for adjustments during application. ConclusionWhile both PUR edge sealing and general hot melt adhesive edge sealing have their merits, PUR adhesive emerges as the superior choice for demanding woodworking applications that require maximum strength, durability, and flexibility. Its ability to withstand harsh conditions and maintain bond integrity over time makes it the go-to option for professionals seeking top-quality results. However, for projects with less demanding requirements or where rapid production is a priority, general hot melt adhesives may suffice.In essence, the choice between PUR and general hot melt adhesive edge sealing depends on the specific needs of your woodworking projects. Consider factors such as durability, flexibility, application requirements, and desired performance when making your decision.Want to know more woodworking application: https://www.hot-melt-glue.com/en/application.php?act=intro&cid=6For any inquiries regarding adhesives for woodworking lamination, edge sealing, veneering, or other related matters, please feel free to CONTACT US if you need further assistance.

Friendly Recycling of Book Binding Glue Reduces Carbon Footprint by 30.78%
Friendly Recycling of Book Binding Glue Reduces Carbon Footprint by 30.78% Feb 16, 2024
Friendly recycling of book binding glue reduces carbon footprint by 30.78%Let’s learn about the process of waste paper recycling!Waste paper generated by each household will be collected by recycling operators. The recycled paper will be further divided into "deinked paper", "magazine paper" and "mixed waste paper" at the recycling plant. The lower the ink content of clean paper, the higher the recycling value is. Different grades of recycled pulp can be made into recycled paper, packaging cartons, environmentally friendly toilet paper and other paper products. Paper Recycling Process Paper Recycling Process The key to friendly recyclingThe recycling industry uniformly transports waste paper to paper mills. The waste paper will be dissolved in water and broken up, and then large foreign matter will be filtered out through the small holes at the bottom of the pulping equipment. In the subsequent process, the equipment will use centrifugal force to exclude needle-shaped metals such as staplers, sand, colloids, etc. in the rough separation stage. Finally, fine separation is carried out, that is, the paper fibers are separated by using the fine pores on the inner wall layer of the equipment.Successfully recycled waste paper will eventually be broken up into fibrous recycled paper raw materials. After cleaning and concentration, the completed raw materials are spread on the net to make a large piece of paper, which is rolled up and down to squeeze out the water. After drying and cutting at a temperature of 150°C, the recycled paper is completed. Barriers to friendly recyclingDuring the filtration process, the paper pulp uses centrifugal force. Although only the paper fibers are allowed to leave from the gaps after filtration, there will still be waste that cannot be eliminated. What remains are impurities larger than the fibers, including hot melt. Glue inside.If there is a lot of waste in the collected waste paper, recycling will become very difficult, so when we recycle paper, remember not to send things other than paper for recycling.During the book forming process, book edge glue and book back glue are used for binding. However, during the recycling process of books, the colloid is not easily damaged by mechanical force. It can only be filtered out through filtration, and the colloid still has the opportunity to slip through the gaps. Paper fibers enter the next process together, affecting paper quality. Ways to improve book recyclingNow, there is a better way to improve book recycling. You can use book binding glue that has passed Japan's Friendly Recycling certification. The glue is separated through filtration in the recycling system. The quality of paper recycling is better, and the circular economic value of the product is increased. And less glue can be used to achieve better binding strength, and friendly recycling of book binding glue can also improve the carbonization phenomenon. Tex Year Friendly Recycling Book Binding Glue is your best choice:Low density requires less glueCompared with traditional EVA hot melt adhesive, the adhesive strength is increased by 30%Excellent thermal stability and reduced equipment maintenance timesCarbon footprint reduced by 30.78%We implement our sustainability commitments with practical actions on our products, and invite you to join us in taking action for environmental sustainability.Some information and videos come from: 【金沢市】古紙の分け方・出し方 ~新たな紙ができるまで編~https://youtu.be/cOX7VoDZmvo?si=fYJKHRCSKm0cYNdoCONTACT US if you need further assistance.

High Temperature Resistant Glue Guide
High Temperature Resistant Glue Guide Oct 6, 2023
High Temperature Resistant Glue GuideWhat is High Temperature Glue?High-temperature glue, often referred to as heat-resistant adhesive or high-temperature adhesive, is a type of adhesive that is designed to withstand elevated temperatures without losing its bonding properties or breaking down. These glues are formulated to maintain their strength, flexibility, and adhesion capabilities even when exposed to high temperatures, typically in the range of 300 degrees Fahrenheit (149 degrees Celsius) or more.When choosing a high-temperature glue, it's important to consider the specific temperature range it can tolerate, as well as the bonding material and the intended application. Different formulations may be better suited to different situations, so selecting the right adhesive for your needs is crucial to ensure a durable and reliable bond under high-temperature conditions. How does High Temperature Resistant Glue Work?High temperature resistant glue works by using specialized formulations and chemical properties to maintain its strength, flexibility, and adhesion capabilities at elevated temperatures. The exact mechanisms can vary depending on the type of adhesive, but here are some common ways in which high-temperature resistant glue works:Thermosetting Polymers:Many high-temperature resistant adhesives are based on thermosetting polymers. These polymers undergo a chemical change when exposed to heat, which causes them to cross-link and harden. Once the adhesive has cured and undergone this chemical transformation, it becomes more stable and heat-resistant. The curing process typically involves the application of heat, which can be done during the manufacturing process or when the adhesive is used.Silicone-Based Formulations:Silicone adhesives are known for their exceptional heat resistance. They work by maintaining their flexibility and stability even at high temperatures. Silicone molecules have a unique structure that allows them to withstand thermal stress without breaking down. They can also maintain their elasticity over a wide temperature range.Epoxy Resins:Epoxy adhesives often use a two-part system where a resin and hardener are mixed together before application. The chemical reaction between these two components, known as curing or polymerization, is initiated by heat or a catalyst. This reaction forms a strong and heat-resistant bond. Epoxy resins can be formulated to withstand high temperatures by using heat-resistant additives and carefully controlling the curing process.Cyanoacrylate (Super Glue):Heat-resistant cyanoacrylate adhesives are designed to maintain their bond strength even at elevated temperatures. They work through a process called anionic polymerization. When the adhesive comes into contact with moisture on the surfaces to be bonded, it rapidly polymerizes and forms a strong bond. Some specialized cyanoacrylates can withstand temperatures up to 250°C (482°F).Polyurethane Adhesives:Polyurethane adhesives are known for their flexibility and resistance to heat, chemicals, and moisture. They typically cure by a moisture-triggered process, and the resulting bonds can remain stable even at high temperatures. Applications of High Temperature Resistant GlueHigh-temperature glue is used in various applications where regular adhesives would fail due to heat exposure. Some common applications for high-temperature glue include:Automotive Repairs:High-temperature glue can be used for bonding components in engines, exhaust systems, and other areas that experience high heat.Electronics:It is employed in the manufacturing and repair of electronic devices where components generate heat, such as circuit boards, power supplies, and LED lighting.Industrial Equipment:High-temperature adhesives are used in the assembly and repair of machinery and equipment that operate at high temperatures, including ovens, furnaces, and boilers.Aerospace:They are used in the aerospace industry for bonding and sealing components on aircraft and spacecraft that must endure extreme temperatures during flight.Household Repairs:High-temperature glues can be used for various household repairs, including fixing appliances, cookware, and barbecue grills. Types of High Temperature Resistant GlueCommon types of high-temperature adhesives include:Silicone Adhesives:These are known for their excellent heat resistance and flexibility. They can withstand temperatures ranging from -40°C to 200°C (-40°F to 392°F) or even higher in some specialized formulations.Cyanoacrylate (Super Glue):Some cyanoacrylate adhesives are formulated to be heat-resistant and can tolerate temperatures up to 250°C (482°F).Epoxy Resins:Certain epoxy adhesives are designed to withstand high temperatures and can be used in applications where temperatures can reach 300°C (572°F) or more.Polyurethane Adhesives:These adhesives can offer good heat resistance and are often used in automotive and industrial applications. What should be Considered When Buying High Temp Glue Besides Heat ResistanceThere are several important factors to consider beyond heat resistance to ensure that you select the right adhesive for your specific application. Here are some key considerations:Temperature Range:While heat resistance is a crucial factor, it's essential to know the specific temperature range the adhesive can withstand. Different high-temperature glues have varying upper limits, so make sure the adhesive's range aligns with your application's temperature requirements.Substrate Compatibility:Consider the materials you intend to bond. Ensure that the adhesive is compatible with the substrates, such as metals, plastics, ceramics, or other materials. Some high-temperature glues may be better suited for certain materials.Curing Time:The drying or curing time can vary between different high-temperature adhesives. Some may require longer curing times than others, so factor this into your project timeline.Viscosity:Viscosity refers to the thickness or flowability of the adhesive. High-temperature glues come in various viscosities, from thin liquids to thick gels. Choose a viscosity that suits your application, taking into account factors like gap size and how the adhesive will be applied.Bond Strength:Consider the required strength of the bond for your application. High-temperature glues may have different bonding strengths, so choose one that meets your specific needs.Certifications and Approvals:Depending on your industry or application, you may require adhesives with specific certifications or approvals. For example, some adhesives may need to meet certain safety standards or regulations. Check if the adhesive has relevant certifications if needed. Tex Year High Temperature Glue RecommendationsPolyamide Based Hot-Melt Adhesive series:UL hot melt adhesives TY-863H1: UL94V0 and ROHS certified, heat resistant, oil resistant, chemical resistant, work perfectly for different types electronic parts bonding.CONTACT US if you need further assistance.
