    THERMOPLASTIC ADHESIVES

    September 11, 2006 by Staff Akron Coating and Adhesives (ACA) announced a line of hot melt adhesives designed to provide a strong bond between a variety of metals and thermoplastics. Thermoplastic elastomers have become increasingly common, and are used in everything from automobiles (weather stripping, gaskets, and seals) to hand grips for tools and appliances. ACA notes that because these thermoplastics have very low surface free energy it is difficult to establish good adhesion. Unlike most adhesives used for this purpose, ACA's products are said to make a bond that is often strong enough to tear the thermoplastic material without first applying a primer coat. By eliminating this extra step manufacturers can cut costs and reduce scrap.
