Hot Melt Adhesive Gravure Lamination

Technologies

The high speed Hot Melt Adhesive Gravure Laminating line at Beckmann Converting can process materials up to 80" wide.  We have experience with a wide variety of hot melt adhesives from true thermo-plasts to PURs (Reactive Polyurethane Resins).  Adhesive selection is based on "in-use" desired characteristics.  Add-on weights of the adhesives are controlled with 4 gram, 10 gram, or 16 gram per square meter rolls, engraved with random computer generated dot patterns.  

Hot Melt Gravure laminating is the ideal method for bonding dissimilar technical textiles needed for a high performing composite, including:

  • Nonwovens

  • Woven and knitted textiles

  • Films

  • Thermoplastic AND Non-Thermoplastic Webs

  • Materials with different melt points

Critical performance properties, including "hand" and Moisture Vapor Transmission Rate (MVTR), can be maintained with the "point" adhesive bonding while creating composite packages having high strength layer to layer bond integrity.
