The bookbinding adhesives market has recently been transformed with a new trend in the use of "cool" hot melt adhesives applied at significantly lower temperatures. Technomelt GA 416C is a bookbinding hot melt that can be applied at 250°. It is suitable for perfect binding of most of the common papers and provides excellent bonding strength. It also works very well on many coated papers. It has very good specific adhesion to many paper types. The flexibility of Technomelt GA 416 is one of it s best characteristics, as many applications require flexibility. Technomelt GA 416C also has a low viscosity which helps give it great page pull strength. Technomelt GA 416C has excellent strength with permanent flexibility and toughness. Very good bond strength is retained at high temperatures and the cold crack point is low. As with all new adhesives we recommend testing before starting production.
Technomelt GA 416C is polymer-based and is 100 percent solids (contains no solvent or water). It is thermoplastic, which means it is solid at room temperature but will liquefy upon heating and solidify again upon cooling. This property gives Technomelt GA 416C a fast setting speed. The lack of water and solvents allows hot melts to attain very good bonding strength very quickly (as soon as it cools).
The running temperature range for Technomelt GA 416C is 260-290°F Applicator 275°F Premelter.
