OVERTEC 5 FR is a polyamide resin specifically designed for over-moulding. It is fire retardant and has excellent electrical properties, Components can be electrically insulated and sealed from water without the need of housing or the use of slow and wasteful 2-component casting/potting resins. Low cost aluminium moulds can be designed to form Connectors, Grommets, and Housings for electrical and automotive components The component or cable/s are placed in the low cost tooling and OVERTEC 5 FR is injected using a specially designed glue gun that features both accurate and adjustable temperature control to ensure consistent over-moulding.. Finished component cost, capital outlay and time to market can be reduced significantly.

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.
