Glue Diligence – Upgrading Your Adhesive Equipment

Outdated adhesive equipment can lead to downtime and missed production goals. Long heat times and plugging are common issues that arise over time. Charring is the biggest problem with hot melt application systems and often leads to nozzle plugging. Char occurs over time from thermal and oxidative degradation, which alters the properties of the adhesive causing it to clump up.


New technologies eliminate these issues while also being more efficient, reducing costs, and freeing up labor time for more productive tasks. As always, it’s important to have a preventative maintenance program in place to extend the operational life of your equipment.
