HOT MELT ADHESIVE
Hot melt adhesive, also known as hot glue is a 100% solid type adhesive. To apply hot melt adhesive, the adhesive must be heated to melt the solid form into liquid form. Upon cooling, the adhesive will begin to solidify and bond the two materials together. Hot melt adhesives are widely used in several industries, particularly those with automated labelling machine or end of line automated packaging systems. For example, Food & Beverage, Frozen and canned foods, Furniture & Woodworking including Automotive parts, Printing as well as Consumer Packaged Goods.
WATER BASED ADHESIVE
To use water based adhesive, simply apply the adhesive onto the surface of the materials to be bonded. Join the 2 materials together to allow the adhesive to become absorbed into the pores of the materials, which will act as an anchorage. Once water has evaporated, and adhesive film will be formed to bond the materials together. Water based adhesive can be used in various applications and industries such as Furniture, Packaging, Carpet, Woodworking, labelling. Currently, our top water based adhesive under the brand IceTechTM has been widely used constantly among leading beverage manufacturers in Thailand and CLMV with the prominent being energy drink and alcoholic beverages where glass bottle labellings are needed.
SOLVENT BASED ADHESIVE
Solvent based adhesives come in a liquid form. The components are usually mixed and dissolved in traditional aromatic hydrocarbon solvents. After applying onto the surface of the materials to be bonded, the solvents in the adhesive will evaporate leaving behind an adhesive film that will bond the two materials together. Selic's solvent based adhesives come in a variety of types, namely Polychloroprene Rubber, Polyurethane, and Styrene-Butadiene Rubber, in order to serve the assortment of industries out there, such as Leather, Footwear, Automotive, Construction, and Furniture & Woodworking.
