The Impact of Adhesives in Product Packaging

Companies have historically relied on hot melt adhesives for all their product packaging and manufacturing needs. There’s a good reason for it, too! Hot melt adhesives are typically used for stabilizing particular areas of packaging that need a solid bond, closing cartons, and sealing a variety of packaging materials in preparation for shipping and consumer use. In addition, since hot melt has water-resistant capabilities and a shorter set time to bond in comparison to water-based adhesives, it’s a preferred adhesive type for manufacturers who need to ensure that their products are thoroughly packaged and can endure arduous environmental conditions that their products may be exposed to during transportation. 

What’s the Big Deal Over Hot Melt Adhesives? 

Hot melt is a pretty big deal when it comes to product packaging. Hot melt can be precisely applied without implementing labor-intensive steps when using the right machinery. The Glue Machinery Corporation carries a variety of hot melt adhesive formulas and hot melt dispensers so that your company can find the best fit for your manufacturing processes.

Types of Hot Melt Machinery for Hand Applications
