Finding the Right Solution for Your Products
Navigating through the various adhesive products that meet your needs is difficult. Henkel’s team of adhesive experts has decades of experience in developing innovative material solutions for tissue and towel manufacturing. With any tissue and towel adhesive applications, there are often issues which arise on the production line. It is important to understand how to troubleshoot common problems. Some common challenges include:
- Slinging, Throwing or Splashing – resulting from centrifugal force, this common challenge is caused by overfilled adhesive pots, adhesive accumulation on the rollers and adhesive drying too fast. The most common fix is adjusting the adhesive thickness. There are also equipment changes, such as cleaning of changing the rollers and modifying the machine speed.
- Pattern Skips – commonly caused by adhesive viscosity, skips in the pattern result from improperly mixed adhesive or broken gel structure. To avoid pattern skips, the adhesive needs to be mixed thoroughly prior to startling a production line. At the same time, the adhesive needs to be covered during downtime.
- Uneven Coat Weights – results from variations in adhesive application. It is commonly caused from uneven pressure between the applicators and the substrate. The applicator should just barely contact the substrate or there will be issues.
- Tailing or Satelliting – occurs when too much adhesive is applied and the center falls away and creates a tail on the substrate. To correct, check the pump rate to assure the correct amount is applied and verify the viscosity is appropriate for the application.
