    Joyachem Hot Melt adhesive that's otherwise known as hot glue, is a thermoplastic adhesive. It's based on the thermoplastic's property, where it's a versatile liquid when exposed to temperatures above 180F, and becomes hard within few seconds, when exposed to temperature less than 180F. They are used in a range of industries for sealing cartons, or for assembling products, or binding books and even diapers. This technology derives its inspiration from molten wax, which was used for bonding in earlier times. Hot melt adhesive are pressure sensitive and work best when using hot melt glue guns. Many industries use this for their packing needs, or wherever harmless adhesives are necessary. It's used widely and preferred for being an Eco-friendly adhesive.

    Different types of hot-melt adhesives include Ethyl Vinyl Acetate or EVA copolymers, Styrene-Butadiene-Styrene or SBS copoymers, Styrene-Ispoprene-Styrene or SIS copolymers, Polurethane Reactive or PUR, Ethylene Ethyl Acrylate copolymers or EEA. These polymers need additional material for making them perfectly adhesive. A polymer property can be enhanced by adding waxes, plasticizers, antioxidants and other materials. Textiles to labels, to disposable products, many industries utilize hot-melt adhesives from. Glue guns are deployed in most industries, for ease of application.

    Nearly 80% of the world demand for adhesives comes from packaging, nonwoven and construction industries. In construction, hot melt adhesives are used for manufacturing and installation of laminated wood panels, prefabricated beams, wall panels, general building construction; installation of flooring, tile, carpeting, ceiling panels and wall coverings. For consumer goods, adhesives are used in the manufacturing of office supplies, hobby and model supplies and stationery. In packaging, the adhesives are used in products like cartons, boxes, corrugated boards, bags, envelopes, disposable products (diapers, paper products, feminine hygiene products), cigarettes, labels and stamps. In tapes, adhesives are used in manufacturing those used for surgery, packaging, industrial applications, consumer applications and masking applications.
