TACKMELT A8 is a hot-melt adhesive based on thermoplastic elastomers (SIS) and synthetic resins.
Special synergic antioxidants are added to guarantee the best ageing resistance.
It has very good tack, good peel and shear adhesion.
It can be used at medium-low temperatures to different products such as foams, synthetic leathers, fabrics, non-wovens and similar.
TACKMELT A8 must be heated at 150-170°C with a suitable heating equipment and kept at a set stable temperature while coating (temperature changes cause a variation of the viscosity and, consequently, of the processing condition).
The best coating system is slot-die.
The product has been designed to withstand high temperatures, but it is preferable to avoid thermal shocks.
The product is supplied in 150g pillows packed in cardboard boxes (20 kg); fibre drums (180 kg).
Keep the product at temperatures lower than +25°C. Avoid contact with dust and liquids. Keep far from heat sources and direct sunlight.
