Avery Dennison hot melt adhesives are engineered to maintain consistent performance throughout a wide range of coatweights and provide a variety of performance characteristics.
Due to the high adhesive flow, rubber-based adhesives typically have high tack and adhesion. These adhesives provide bond integrity to most substrates, including rough or textured surfaces, and Low Surface Energy (LSE) materials like polypropylene. They offer excellent performance at low temperatures, and often allow for applications at lower temperatures than other types of adhesives.
The downside of rubber hot melt adhesives is that they generally have lower cohesion and shear performance compared to alternative PSAs. They are also susceptible to aging, high temperatures, and a range of other environmental factors.
