PUR Adhesive hot melts is another type of hot melt glue . PUR glues are a more recent development for perfect binding and are largely different from the EVA and SBR (styrene butadiene rubber) hot melts.
Transitioning to reactive hot-melt polyurethane (PUR) offers companies a way to stay relevant and competitive.
A well-maintained hot-melt PUR application system helps produce beautiful, durable products for a variety of consumer and industrial products.
There’s no reason companies can’t take advantage of PUR’s myriad benefits without the headaches. By following a few installation, operation and maintenance tips, PUR dispensing technology can offer excellent product results, consistent operation, and minimal downtime.
Adjusting to new operating procedures can be a challenge, but the benefits of hot-melt PURs far outweigh these drawbacks. Consider the following when converting to or adding PUR capability to your operation.
Is PUR the right material for the job? All adhesive options should be considered to ensure that PURs are the best fit for a given application. Your adhesive supplier will recommend the type and form of adhesive for a specific application, taking into consideration manufacturing-process and finished-product requirements.
While using PUR can provide cost savings, including reduced adhesive and energy usage and optimized labor, both the hot-melt PUR material and dispensing equipment are typically more expensive than traditional hot-melt adhesive and equipment, influencing the payback period in your return on investment analysis. Ask your equipment provider for a budgetary cost estimate so your internal capital request covers the amount you need for PUR dispensing equipment.
Do you have the right PUR? All PURs are not created equal - or the same. PUR adhesives have a variety of open and cure times; a mismatch between operating procedures and PUR characteristics will cause operator frustration and material waste. If PUR is the optimal material, consult with your adhesive supplier to ensure you have the right PUR formulation for your operation.
Do you have the right PUR dispensing equipment? Just as each PUR is different, so are the systems that apply them. Look for a scalable system that protects the integrity of your PUR, offers simplified operation and maintenance, and increases your production efficiency.
