Foam Bonding

Tecbond Sprayable Hot Melt Adhesives.

Solvented adhesives are now becoming redundant in the foam converting, upholstery, seating, insulation, sound deadening and protective packaging markets as customers seek a more environmentally friendly approach.

Think Glue

Water based products (2 components) adhesives have been the option available, but now hot melt adhesives are finding their place replacing the need of extraction, spray booths, two component spray equipment and mixings. Hot melt adhesives are easy to use, clean and fast setting, giving the operator flexibility and speed to increase production.
