An Industry Leader
Henkel has been producing adhesives since 1923. In the 1950s, Henkel was the first company to introduce hotmelts based on natural resins.
Purmelt adhesives are ready-to-use meaning no additional mixing is required. They adhere to most diverse materials, offer high green strength, short setting times and allow a rational Inline production. Very short pressing times, reduced standstills during cleaning and a high machine speed lead to lower production costs and make the whole production process very economical. After the setting, they convince of an extraordinary resistance against humidity, heat and cold. They are also resistant against oils and many solvents. Bondings achieve a high final strength. Humidity will not infiltrate due to Purmelt, so the substrates do not swell and tensions caused through drying processes do not occur. By this broad range of advantages Purmelt adhesives convince especially where quality is in demand.
