    General product assembly, for example; automotive assembly and sub-component manufacture, domestic and industrial white goods. electronics, filter manufacture, cables. They are highly successful at bonding dissimilar materials, typically plastics, rubber, metals, ceramics, glass, wood and fibrous materials such as paper, board, non-woven fabrics and leather.

    Our hot melts are suitable for application by applying glue dots and beads where appropriate. Our range includes pressure sensitive and contact adhesives for spray, bead and dot applications. We supply glue guns for glue sticks and work with hot glue gun manufacturers such as Nordson & Melton. Hot melt is used mainly as an industrial adhesive, working on wraparound case sealing lines and carton erecting machines such as Bradman Lake.

    We supply wood glue to the furniture manufacturing industry as a hot melt adhesive for edge banding, profile wrapping, v-grooving and more. Product assembly adhesive can be sprayed or applied as a bead. These adhesives are also suitable for tankless systems. Our hot melts are principally EVA based and we also have polyolefin and metallocene polymers.

    We specifically supply hot melt adhesive for coating machines, for the lamination of film substrates and the insulation of interconnector cables as well as for the manufacture of filters. With our global partner Beardow Adams - one of the world's foremost hot melt adhesive manufacturers and suppliers - we supply MSDS sheets, TDS sheets and hot melt pressure sensitive adhesive.

    All our products are batch numbered and are supplied with Certificate of Conformance sheets.

    Print Finishing

    Binding applications, tip in and other print finishing adhesive applications. Heat reactivatable coatings, lamination and hot melt pressure sensitive adhesives (HMPSA) for self-adhesive coatings.

    Together our hot melt adhesive supplies and packaging machinery provide complete end of line packaging solutions that are unmatched by any other packaging companies in Ireland.
