can be processed like classic EVA hot melt adhesives without
any technical modifications to the equipment. PO hot melt
adhesives are typically used in the cabinet industry, and in
the commercial and high-end residential furniture industry.
Another type of adhesive used in edgebanding are PUR hot
melts, which can produce an almost invisible bondline while
demonstrating high heat resistance values above 120C along
with a high resistance to water and chemicals. Available in
granulate form, the moisture-curing adhesives are processed
in special melting units to avoid contact with the moisture in
the air. The quality achievable has made this system one of the
most popular and fastest growing bonding methods.
In summary, the system of bonding is an integral compo-
nent and can lead to competitive advantages for the company.
