Jowat has announced a new expansion to its Jowat-Toptherm product line with a new optimised polyolefin (PO) hotmelt adhesive, the Jowat-Toptherm 237.50.

A high heat resistance, high bond strength coupled with optimised application amounts, reduced stringing and a range of adhesion make the Jowat-Toptherm 237.50 an alternative to polyurethane reactive (PUR) hotmelt systems.

According to Jowat, the new PO hotmelt has a filler-free formulation. This increases yield and facilitates colourless adhesive bondlines that are barely visible, especially in applications with dark decor materials and high-gloss surfaces.

As part of the Jowat Green Adhesives, this product is also REACH-compliant and therefore supports protection of employees and the environment. At the same time, it can prevent high costs for the training which is mandatory for employees who are processing adhesives containing isocyanate.

The unfilled PO hotmelt adhesive can be processed with automatic edgebanding machines and can bond different edgebanding materials such as acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), polypropyleme (PP), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), melamine or real wood veneer.
