The Present and Future Status of Hot Melt Adhesives in the Automotive Industry 700070
A basic description of hot melt adhesive technology is followed by a discussion of the effects of the four variables: heat, pressure, open time, and volume of adhesive. Some features of hot melts are freedom of pollution, labor saving, cleanliness, and 100% use of material. Current automotive uses are reviewed and future uses are envisioned. New applicators are being designed to make this tool suitable for more on-line operations.
