PUR Adhesive VS EVA Hot Melt Adhesive Many of our clients may ask us what’s the difference between the PUR adhesive and traditional EVA Hot melt adhesive? Both are hot melt adhesives; their features may sound similar. However, according to the manufacturing process, the theory of chemical reaction, and performance, they are actually different types
After reading “What is PUR adhesive”, you may have a general idea about PUR. In this article, we would like to introduce to you more knowledge about PUR and its laminating PUR machine. The Operating Process of PUR adhesive At room temperature, PUR is presented as the solid block. Before starting the laminating process,
Solvents for PU and PSA Adhesive What is a Solvent? Solute + Solvent = Solution A solvent is a component that dissolves other solutes into a solution. For example, water is a kind of solvent for polar substances and the most common one fused in our daily life. Today we gonna talk about the solvents
What is PUR Adhesive? PUR adhesive, also called Polyurethane Reactive (PUR) Hot Melt Glues, is 100% solid content, isocyanate (NCO) capped adhesive. PUR will contact the moisture in the air, and allow it to form stronger bonds after the curing process is completed. PUR has a highly flexible and strong adhesion, and suitable for a

What is Acrylic Adhesive? Acrylic adhesive is a kind of acrylic polymer prepared by different kinds of acrylate monomers, like 2-Ethylhexyl acrylate and butyl acrylate, by using semicontinuous emulsion and solution polymerizations. When the acrylic polymer is synthesized to a certain molecular weight range, it will become sticky and adhesion with pressure given, as we
1. The difference between acrylic adhesive and polyurethane adhesive 2. What is polyurethane adhesive and its applications? 3. What are the benefits and applications of polyurethane adhesive? Polyurethane Adhesive Provides Permanent Adhesion Compared with acrylic adhesive, polyurethane (also called PU) adhesive provides extremely strong adhesion, isolation, and flexibility. Therefore, you can find that the applications
What is Viscosity? Viscosity is a measure of a liquid’s resistance to flow, which describes the internal friction of a moving fluid. In the observation, low-viscosity adhesives will flow more readily than high-viscosity ones. For example, water has a much lower viscosity than honey and adhesive, so the water will flow easily and quickly because
This question can be divided into two parts. The first part is the introduction of polar and non-polar molecules, and the other part is an introduction of some common non-polar materials.
