Most common corrugated box packaging material is made of paper, which is lighter than wood, has sufficient hardness, and is easy to cut the size. But paper corrugated boxes are susceptible to water immersion, humidity, or mildew damages. Packaging material corrugated cardboards have different surface hardness and waterproof treatment designed to provide waterproof and load protections during transport. The level of difficulty for packaging material adhesive also increases due to the protection needs. Therefore, selecting a suitable packaging material hot-melt adhesive is critical.In addition to paper corrugated boxes, PP plastic corrugated boxes are also available on the market. PP plastic corrugated boards (PP corrugated) are made via polypropylene (PP) hot-melt pressing. This recyclable and environmentally friendly plastic material has light weight, high durability, good moisture resistance, and good load capacity compared to that of paper. PP corrugated is also very suitable for packaging agricultural products such as fruits and vegetables to keep them as fresh and nutritious as the moment they were picked. PP polypropylene is a difficult to bond packaging material. General hot-melt adhesive cannot meet the requirements. Tex Year understands the hot-melt adhesive needs for your PP corrugated material bonding process!

Mattress Comfort Determination Indicators: SupportA mattress with good support can produce different support strengths according to the human body curvatures, which is the most important indicator.Fit A good mattress brings a sense of comfortable wrapping-fit.BreathabilityA mattress with poor breathability would become hotter as the user sleeps. The skin cannot breath and can easily develop into various skin diseases.Interference PreventionIf the whole bed vibrates when you turn over, the bed has poor interference prevention and can affect the sleep of your other half. If the other side of the bed does not vibrate when you turn over, it has strong interference prevention.For a mattress to satisfy these four major indicators, multiple layers of materials need to be overlapped and combined. Tex Year's hot-melt adhesive products produce no toxic gases such as benzene or formaldehyde; and are crucial to securely bond the surface fabric, various lining materials, springs, etc. These products can resolve the environmental protection issues in the mattress production process.Tex Year's Hot Melt 合得妙® adhesive used for mattress bonding would not harden the foams, and the bonding effect is uniform and long-lasting over time. It also offers good heat and cold resistance, and smooth operation process without any adhesive drawing. The product can maintain cleanliness for the processing parts and the working environment. The long-lasting bonding as well as the non-toxic, tasteless, and harmless attributes offer a guarantee for consumer health.
Do you know how many procedures required before a perfect book reaches to your hand?They include pre-press content writing, design, editing, plate-making, in-printing, proofreading, color adjustment, and printing as well as post-printing collation, binding, and cutting. The various other background conditions such as printing method, letterpress, screen, lithography, gravure, paper or printed material type, and paper pound selection are also key consideration points for the binding operation.High-pound Paper Binding ChoicesTex Year 718 Series Edge AdhesivePaper selection and binding method are absolutely critical to the perfect appearance presentation of a book. In general, book covers would use higher-pound, harder, and thicker papers such as silk, imported, or pattern papers at between 150 to 250 pounds for appearance reasons. The Tex Year 718 series adhesive for book cover binding is transparent and odorless when hot-melted. It offers good wettability and thermal adhesiveness, and excellent bonding effect for high-pound papers.Special Material Fitting Selection The publishing industry has introduced numerous innovations in recent years. There are often special film coatings, inks, and gloss treatments designed to provide eye-catching visual effects and transcend the traditional page flipping experience. Materials other than paper such as cloth, wood chips, leather, plastic, etc., are also often used. For these difficult to bond substrates, we recommend Tex Year 321A, which offers high adhesion strength to different substrates and resolves the bonding issues for various types of materials.Internal Page Material Fitting SelectionTex Year 778 Series / Tex Year 759 Series / PUR SeriesMost inner pages for books use economical and light paper such as Dowling paper, molded paper, light-weight coated paper, or recycled paper in response to environmental awareness. Several innate conditions must be considered during paper selection. Among them, factory equipment production speed is a key factor for adhesive selection. Tex Year Economic 778 Series Edge Adhesive has fast curing speed that is perfect for medium and fast production line machines, and is suitable for binding equipment capable of completing 7,000-10,000 books/hour. It is recommended for mass production needs such as textbooks.Behind each perfect book is its complicated production processes. The details are critical. In addition to material selection, production process plan, and supervision by special personnel; the adhesive operation team is also filled with semi-artists who must pay attention down to the last detail. Each member is a specialist in certain aspects of book production, and shuttles through the printing site to provide various book binding solutions. Tex Year is no doubt your best book binding partner.
What are VOCs?VOCs is the acronym for Volatile Organic Compounds. The definition of VOCs is different among countries. They usually refer to the organic compounds that volatilize easily at room temperature. Burning of fuels and gases produced by transportations are the main source of outdoor VOCs. If it's indoors, they're usually produced from building or decoration materials, furniture, household appliances, cleaners, and so on. (Source: Wikipedia)As the air pollution becomes an increasingly serious problem in recent years, many countries established regulations to govern the air quality and speed up the reduction of the use of VOCs in major industries by promoting greening of industries and improving the quality of the atmospheric environment to protect the health of human beings.VOCs and air pollutionThe environmental trend of low VOCsThe Environmental Protection Administration governs the products containing VOCs, including adhesives and sealants, and sets a limit value of their concentration to reduce the emission of VOCs.Our core value is to provide environment-friendly, innovative, and safe products and protect the interests of our customers to meet the requirements of the laws and regulations. We pay close attention to the development trend of the market and respond to the demands of the customers and end consumers in a timely manner.

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.

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.
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. It is hardened within a short time without the worry of coming off, and has outstanding temperature resistance without oozing at high temperature or brittleness at low temperature.Hot melt adhesives for wet wipe lids!
