Hot Melt Adhesives (HMAs)

  • High-adhesion, plasticizer-free, soft PearlbondTM 300 series for bonding of any substrates in the textile market, even difficult ones. The outstanding elasticity of the new soft TPU series gives a freedom of movement, as well as comfort and soft touch. Typical industries or applications that benefit from the Pearlbond™ 300 TPU series include: Textile lamination, automotive, footwear, electronics, outdoor equipment, furniture, synthetic leather, elastic seam tapes and heat transfer labels.

  • Fast and high-heat resistant PearlbondTM 700 series offers fast setting bonding with good mechanical properties at low temperatures. By applying this breakthrough material, processes are simplified due to a short cycle time, and this new elastic TPU has improved performance thanks to improved comfort and durability at lower temperature cycles.  

  • Pearlbond™ 900 TPUs are soft, plasticizer-free polymers that combine outstanding weatherability (resistance to UV, hydrolysis, and harsh solvents) and very strong bonding strength to a multitude of substrates such as PET, PA fabrics, cotton and many other textiles.
