Adhesive Coating Options
Thermoplastic Glue System
Our thermoplastic glue system is applied as a water-based top coat. It can provide an instant bond to a variety of substrates when activated by heat. It can be reactivated any number of times without changing character or cross-linking.
Our adhesives come in a variety of activation temperature ranges, and our NAF™ (No Added Formaldehyde) adhesives are GREENGUARD Children and SchoolsSM certified.
Base conditions for activation are: 265° F - 300° F (125° C - 150° C), 150 psi, 2-4 minutes press time per sheet.

Base conditions for activation are: 240°F – 265°F (120°C – 130°C), 150 psi, 2-4 minutes press time per sheet.

Pressure is important. For equipment where pressures of 150 psi are not possible, experimentation will be needed to determine if the product performs satisfactorily. Lower than recommended pressures can sometimes be offset by higher activation temperatures, although the user must determine whether actual performance is satisfactory. In any case, intimate contact between the two surfaces is required to provide satisfactory bonding.
Thermoset Glue System
The thermoset glue system is designed for applications where a heat- and water-resistant bond is required. This adhesive system will resist high process or end use temperatures. In order to maximize cross-linking, this system requires a cure cycle.
Base conditions for activation are: 300° F (150° C), 150 psi, 2 - 4 minutes press time per sheet.
This adhesive is a non-yellowing, rapid cure glue that has thermoplastic properties prior to completion of the cure cycle. The glue line can be reactivated when repressed at original or increased temperature and pressure.
