Tecbond 345 metallocene adhesive, the old saying “less is more” is true. Tecbond 345 metallocene based hot melt adhesive is less dense so the same volume of adhesive will weigh less when compared to standard EVA packaging adhesives. This adhesive has high tack and excellent strength giving fibre tear of most common types of paper and boards. The low viscosity of this product helps prevent stringing, improves glue gun output and ensures bonds are made with the minimum gap between surfaces without compromising strength. Tecbond 345 offers high output, and is a very fast setting adhesive based on the latest metallocene catalysed polyolefin elastomers giving exceptionally high instant grab and making it very versatile with excellent adhesion to difficult boards.
· More mileage vs EVA up to 40% reduction
· Excellent hot and cold temperatures resistance
· Reduced charring
· Less is more
All constituent parts of this adhesive have been approved by the American F.D.A under C.F.R 21.175.105 (adhesives).
For use with all Tec 12mm glue guns.

Important: Hot Melt Adhesives do have limitations! Being a thermoplastic product hot melt adhesives soften with heat and return to a solid state by the loss of heat. With this in mind, standard hot melt adhesives are not recommend for applications subjected to heat or direct sunlight. However we do offer grades with high heat resistance. Water and hot melt adhesives are a bad combination – standard hot melt adhesives are not waterproof and should be avoided for external applications. On saying this, we do have PUR adhesives that can be use externally and can even be dry cleaned. We strongly recommend that you thoroughly test the product and satisfy yourselves that the product is suitable for your application. This product suggested uses are a generalised suggestion and other factors may play a role in achieving the required bond, e.g. heat resistance, chemical resistance, gap filling, surface area to glue, open time or a degree of glue flexibility may be required etc.
