Why is Temperature So Critical for Dry Blended Adhesives?

After you’ve mixed your dry blend adhesive with water, you still need to heat it to the correct temperature before you apply it. All of the dry blend adhesives we supply, from PVOH to starch-based to gelatin-based need to be heated to some degree for best results. Why is this temperature so critical and what … Continue reading Why is Temperature So Critical for Dry Blended Adhesives?

How Temperature Impacts Adhesives

Manufacturers must closely control the working temperature ranges of adhesives to ensure proper viscosity, adhesion, set speed, open time and curing. Poor temperature control creates problems that reduce adhesive performance, increase manufacturing costs and dissatisfied consumers of the end product. Each class of adhesive exhibits its unique thermal characteristics. Water-based Adhesives Adhesives in which the … Continue reading How Temperature Impacts Adhesives
