Hot-Melt adhesive tapes are produced through the so-called “HOT MELT” technology, which consists in preparing the adhesive through a heat melting process to homogenise its various components. The adhesives employed in our Hot-Melt adhesive tapes are essentially made up of natural or synthetic resins, synthetic rubbers, mainly thermoplastics, and organic and inorganic additives. After melting, the adhesives are spread on the support selected for the tape to be produced. Hot-Melt adhesive tapes feature high adhesive capacity and are ideal for applications in contexts not subject to extreme temperatures. No solvents are used during the production process. Our Hot-Melt products include masking tapes for mainly indoor use, packaging tapes, flat and duct tapes, double sided tapes. A hot melt tape is ideal for applications involving machine applied tapes, overstuffed cartons, or cartons with a high degree of recycled content. They perform well in temperatures ranging from 45F to 120F.  Hot Melt tape uses an environmentally resistant modified fluoropolymer to provide sealing in high-temperature systems. It can be used for sealing high-temperature heat-shrink components to backshells and is well suited for power cables with fluoropolymer and fluoroelastomer insulations and jackets. The tape can be used to sustain the cable properties in ground defense and aerospace applications. With an operating temperature range from -55°C to +240°C, the tape adhesive resists solvents and fluids commonly found in aerospace and defense applications, including cleaning compounds, jet fuel, hydraulic fluids, and lubricating oils.
