Methods and Design Considerations for the Application of Hot Melt Coatings

Kevin Lifsey

Presented by Bob Pasquale, New Era Converting Machinery

As the use of hot melt coatings continues to grow and evolve so too have the operating parameters and requirements for applying these coatings.  This presentation covers several of the coating methods currently used to apply hot melts, including a review of the typical operating parameters and conditions for each method, as well as the associated advantages and disadvantages.  Additionally, we cover the critical features that should be incorporated into the design of the application system.  Though we touch upon the systems that are used to melt and deliver the hot melts to the coater, we do not cover them in any detail.
