Sika Corporation, a supplier of innovative adhesive and sealant solutions, is proud to announce the launch of SikaMelt-9677 to the US market. SikaMelt-9677 is a reactive polyurethane hot-melt adhesive that cures on exposure to atmospheric humidity and forms a durable elastomer. It is suitable for permanent bonding of polar plastics, woods, foams, textiles, painted and primed steel substrates. The adhesive is ideally suited for small and large panel laminations, particularly for the recreational vehicle (RV) and garage door markets.
The adhesive is ideally suited for small and large panel laminations, particularly for the recreational vehicle (RV) and garage door markets. Also, SikaMelt-9677 is available in two versions – a non-tint formula, which contains a UV fluorescing agent and also a tinted version, SikaMelt-9677 US RD, which incorporates a red dye in the formulation.
“SikaMelt-9677 has high initial green strength,” said Mark Daniels, Vice President, Industry Transportation and Appliance and Components. “It has a broad adhesion range with excellent heat resistance and exceptional aging performance.”
The SikaMelt line consists of a wide range of fast-acting adhesives for lamination and assembly work that are the ideal complement to the Sikaflex urethane bonding systems. The SikaMelt hotmelt line develops initial strength quickly and provides cost-effective adhesive solutions which easily integrate into fast-moving production processes.
SikaMelt allows manufacturers to reduce or eliminate assembly aids previously required (such as clamps and jigs), and thereby streamline and simplify production. Specialized assembly grade and textile adhesives complete the SikaMelt product family – including polyolefin and pressure sensitive (PSA) formulations – to ensure solutions for most bonding applications.
