Novamelt offers, under the brand name Novamelt® PS, a wide range of pressure sensitive adhesives based on thermoplastic rubber.
At room temperature, the products are solid. These products are supplied in siliconized cardboard boxes containing 4, 8 or 20 kg or in fibre drums containing 165 to 175 kg.
Hotmelt adhesives are melted with block melters or drum-unloaders. Coating is made at 150° to 180 °C, depending on the specific application, on standard roller- or slot-die-coating machines.
Demands for special developments with specific end-use properties are also possible. Due to the high number of different substrates in combination with new applications and coating technologies, the results are present in a broad range of activities.
For almost all self-adhesive applications, from strong permanent to removable adhesion with low tack and peel, a suitable product is offered. The major fields of application are label stock, self adhesive tapes or hygienic products. For many industrial intermediate products such as sound dampening or packaging technology, the self-adhesive technology offers a smart and economical alternative compared to a mechanical assembly process.
Especially for the industrial application of tape for the construction area as well as for insulation purposes, hotmelt with high performance values are required. Novamelt offers a broad selection of different adhesives which are ideal for fine tuning in the different application areas.
This product group shows high growth rates based on the good performance on skin. The industry uses transparent as well as filled products containing zinkoxid. The main argument for the success of this product group is the omission of organic solvents.
