Elgin, IL (PRWEB) August 8, 2009
Wisdom Adhesives, North America's top mid-sized manufacturer of high performance, environmentally safe industrial adhesives, announces their new line of PolyTak hot melt adhesives for packaging and paper converting applications such as sealing cases, cartons and trays as well as closing the ends of multiwall paper bags. PolyTak hot melt adhesives offer excellent paper and paperboard substrate adhesion, have set properties ranging from medium to fast and exceptional heat resistance, machining and stability properties.
PolyTak Adhesives are more economical than EVA based competitive products due to their lower density (increased mileage) and higher performance (no downtime; increased bond strength, high heat resistance; equipment savings). Typical savings of 15% - 25% have been achieved when using PolyTak Adhesives.
PolyTak is available in three formulas:
- PolyTak PT3000 is a medium set polyethylene based hot melt for case, carton and tray sealing applications. Its excellent hot tack properties allow it to adhere well to difficult surfaces.
- PolyTak PT6005 adheres well to a range of paper and paperboard stock used for in case, carton and trays sealing production. Key features include fast setting, increased mileage, due to low density, and reduced wear on application parts.
- PolyTak PT8000 is a medium setting polyethylene hot melt for closing the ends of multiwall paper bags. It bonds well to a wide variety of board and paper stocks, has excellent heat stability and high viscosity so that it does not run on a vertical surface.
