Hot Melt Film

Hot Melt Film adhesives are typically formulated from synthetic polymers. They are available in a variety of thicknesses either as a random web or continuous film. Random web adhesives provide softer bond lines and drape more easily to conform to three dimensional shapes. They are often used to laminate or seam fabrics. Continuous film adhesives are supplied in various widths. Wide widths are used to laminate wide areas such as decorative veneer on composite wood core. Film adhesives can be supplied on release liner and die cut for precise, automated assembly such as in the electronics market. Typically, two substrates or components are joined with the Hot Melt Film between them and the assembly is heated to liquefy the adhesive. The bond is formed when the adhesive cools and solidifies.
