Tecbond 267W are high performance adhesives formulated for Polyolefin plastics such as polypropylene and polyethylene.
To achieve a good bond on polypropylene it is important that the bond is made at the highest temperature possible ie > 200˚C Good bonds can be achieved on polyethylene, polypropylene, polycarbonate, nylon, rigid PVC, light gauge metals and polystyrene and many other substrates. All bonds should be tested at least 24hours after assembly at both the high and low temperatures they will be expected to withstand in service.
All constituent parts of this adhesive have been approved by the American F.D.A under C.F.R 21.175.105 (adhesives).

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.
