Technomelt EM 115 is a pressure sensitive bottle labeling hot melt designed for roll-fed and cut and stack applications. It has excellent adhesion to all label stocks and containers. Technomelt EM 115 typically runs well on Trine and B&H Labelers. The Technomelt EM 115 can be applied at low application temperatures, so it doesn't damage the label. The typical running temperature is 290°F 320°F. It gives excellent resistance to bleed-through on the label. It bonds BOPP, HDPE, and LDPE labels, and works very well with glass, PET, HDPE, PP, LDPE, and PVC bottles. Technomelt EM 115 is especially designed for high speed (HS) & high heat resistant (heat shrink) applications. It has excellent adhesion to cold/wet or hot/dry containers and does exceptionally well in the extreme of hot or cold as it is a very aggressive adhesive. It is specially designed for good machinability without damage to any type label. Technomelt EM 115 also does an excellent job of labeling pick-up and lap of hot containers and will withstand hot storage conditions.
All ingredients are approved under the Federal Regulation 21 CFR 175.105, which relates to incidental contact of adhesives with food.
The Technomelt EM 115 is very tacky at room temperature, which makes it difficult to handle. We produce Technomelt EM 115 in chub form. The chub is wrapped in a thin film that is easy to use and easy to put in the hot melt pot. When the Technomelt EM 115 and the film are put in the hot melt tank the film dissolves with the hot melt and is incorporated into the adhesive. The makeup of the Technomelt EM 115 is unaffected and the properties remain the same Technomelt EM 115 can be effectively cleaned off equipment, labels, and bottles with the use of MELT O CLEAN. MELT-O CLEAN is especially effective for removing pressure sensitive adhesives (PSA) from bottle labeling equipment.
STORAGE, HANDLING, AND PRECAUTIONS
Rotate stock using oldest material first. Keep covered to prevent contamination. Do not mix with other adhesives. For best results, use within 1 year from date of shipment. Material is applied hot. Refer to the Material Safety Data Sheet for ventilation and handling requirements.
