Hot Melt Solutions for Assembly, Packaging, Lamination and Converting

Hot melt adhesives are an economical way to bond multiple substrates and can be applied with the use of many different types of applicators. They can be extruded, rolled or sprayed either manually or automated with a hand, spray, ribbon, or roll applicator. They are typically used in many applications such as packaging, labeling, filters, lamination, non-woven and product assembly, but they can also be used for gap filling, potting, or encapsulation. Hot melts have a variety of bonding and temperature ranges and offer quick green strength for just in time manufacturing. Ellsworth Adhesives offers a wide range of hot melt adhesives, applicators, and dispensing equipment which can be customized to your exact specifications.
