New level of process efficiency in bookbinding with polymer technology-based adhesives

3 March 2020

“Technomelt GA 3980 Ultra integrates seamlessly into the Henkel product family for bookbinding applications between our PUR and EVA solutions. During development, we focused particularly on increasing process efficiency while cutting costs for our customers. This is especially important given the growing cost pressure in the industry,” explains Mario Eckers, regional Sales Director Packaging Adhesives at Henkel. Technomelt GA 3980 Ultra is based on new polymers. Henkel has extensive experience in end-of-line applications and the spine glue market when it comes to the development of thermoplastics. “In ultra-modern hot melt adhesives, we have observed a growth of over six percent in the packaging industry over the last few years. This development highlights the advantages of changing from EVA to highperformance hot melt adhesives, which are evident in other industries, too. We therefore know that, with Technomelt GA 3980 Ultra, we are creating real added value for our customers,” Eckers continues.

Henkel puts the focus on customer needs in bookbinding

With Technomelt GA 3980 Ultra, Henkel is expanding its portfolio of high-performance hot melt adhesives for bookbinding applications. Technomelt GA 3980 Ultra also particularly highlights the product’s universal suitability. This means that no new investments need to be made in machinery, since the adhesive is suitable for all hot melt systems and therefore no changeover times are needed on the equipment. The quality of the end products can also be checked immediately thanks to the adhesive’s high initial strength. This quality is increased even further with excellent heat and cold resistance, improved flexibility and high adhesive strength, even on substrates that are difficult to process. Overall, the new adhesive offers not only improved end product quality but also a low application weight and high yield, delivering significant savings in terms of overall costs. The adhesive’s high melting stability also leads to less carbonization, allowing better machine utilization and shorter equipment downtimes through the reduction of cleaning intervals. With the introduction of Technomelt GA 3980 Ultra, Henkel is offering its customers in the bookbinding industry a further highperformance hot melt adhesive solution to help them make their processes more efficient and therefore stand their ground in the competition.
