With additional hot-melt adhesives expected to be launched yet this year, SABA says it’s reaffirming its position as one of the top, solvent-free foam bonding experts.
“We see an increased demand for environmentally friendly, solvent-free foam bonding solutions,” said Jim Turner, business director — Foam Bonding Adhesives. “By expanding our product portfolio with new, high-quality, hot-melt adhesives, we bring more value to bedding and furniture manufacturers. Our pocket coil hot melt is the first addition, with more to follow later this year.”
Sabamelt 4732 is a granulate hot melt and because of its reliable properties, it’s ideal for pocket-spring production. Its short open time, 100% setting characteristic, and excellent adhesion to non-woven make it gain final bond strength extremely rapidly. The result is immediate handling and a very strong bond.
“When buying SABA hot melts, you’ll not only get a high-quality product but also a ton of knowledge and support to go with it,” said Turner. “Industry leading, water-based adhesives will remain our foundation but soon this will also be complimented by a full portfolio of high-performing hot-melt adhesives so that we can bring more value to our customers than ever before.”
For years, SABA’s primary focus has been developing innovative water-based adhesives that meet the highest performance and quality standards. In fact, SABA was the first company in the world to develop a water-based adhesive with immediate tack so it’s a technology with deep roots within the organization.
“Water-based adhesives truly provide the best final bond strength and we still stand behind this technology as the superior bonding solution for the foam processing industry,” he said. “But if our customers production process does not allow for the processing time of a water-based adhesive, or if their substrates are not fully compatible with a water-based adhesive, then hot melt is a very viable alternative”
