Read on to find out 4 reasons you should try Glue Dot adhesives…
Faster & Easier Production Lines with Glue Dots:
Glue Dots are a simple, convenient and versatile alternative to traditional adhesives such as hot melts and double-sided tapes. There is minimal training required in order to successfully apply a Glue Dot adhesive, allowing for a quick and easy start up. Glue Dot adhesives offer an immediate solution to bonding applications as they can be applied instantly and require no drying or curing time.
Additionally, Glue Dots offer a vast selection of different application methods, ranging from pocket-sized applicators to fully automated in-line equipment. This makes dispensing Glue Dots an efficient and economical process to implement.
A Glue Dot for Every Application:
Glue Dot adhesives are available in five standard tack levels and there are three profiles to choose from. The tack levels range from low tack which allows bonds to be removed, to super high tack for a permanent adhesion. A versatile adhesive, Glue Dots adhere to wide variety of materials including paper, plastic, foil, glass, wood and aluminium. Like other adhesives, selecting the correct variety of a Glue Dot is determined by the substrate, the product’s orientation and the external environmental conditions.
Furthermore, custom adhesive sizes, formulas and configurations are also available upon request to help overcome specific application challenges. The experienced Glue Dots team can deliver their adhesive formulas in patterns of the user’s choice, making the options virtually endless. The sheer versatility means that there is a Glue Dot adhesive available for every packaging, printing or manufacturing project.
Unlike traditional adhesives such as hot melts, Glue Dots are a preformed adhesive which provide consistent and even coverage. Glue Dots can be placed precisely where you wish with ease, and leaves no stringing, residue or squeeze-out. This eliminates excess material waste and means that very little clean up or additional finishing is required. The clean bond lines give impressive results when used on product packaging or in the pharmaceutical industry.
An Extremely Safe Adhesive Option:
Glue Dots offer an extremely safe application process from start to finish. They have a non-toxic formulation and require no electricity or heat during application. Furthermore, the hand-held applicator is easy to use and eradicates the risk of repetitive strain injuries (RSI). Glue Dots formulation is odour-free, eliminating fumes and creating a safe application environment.
