GLUETEX offers a wide selection of hot melt adhesive films for large-surface bonding of textiles. This method is primarily used to refine textiles with additional foils and add new features. These are for example reinforcement, decoration, reflection of energy, blackout, stain protection, waterproofing, protection, fire resistance and weldability. GLUETEX hotmelt adhesive films provide a reliable and smooth connection - day in and day out. GLUETEX hotmelt films are increasingly replacing conventional liquid adhesives. They are solventfree and therefore particularly environmentally friendly.
Hotmelt adhesive film is mainly activated by heat using flatbed or roll laminators. Through the supply of heat onto the film, the adhesive becomes slightly liquid and cross links with the fabric of the seam. Once the heat supply is stopped, the hotmelt cures in seconds and ensures a strong bond.
Benefits of hotmelt films at a glance:
Adhesive joints are uniformly dense
Easy to handle
Easy job preparation
Long shelf life
Rapid activation and setting time of the hotmelts
Glued joint is resistant after a short time
