CONSIDERATIONS WHEN CHOOSING ADHESIVE FOR YOUR APPLICATIONS
First, to choose the right glue for your application, you need to specify the features of your product including the surface of adhesive material, production line (with or without heat, automatic or manual), the factors affecting products when storing, transporting, and using.
Below are the detailed instructions to help customers choose a suitable glue for their application.
1. TYPES OF ADHESIVE
Each kind of glue will work under a specific technical condition. One type of adhesive will give different reactions to different types of substrates, so it provides a wide range of applications for the printing industry. Depending on the characteristics of the material surface, we can choose the suitable glue.
There are many kinds of adhesive suitable for your applications such as hot melt adhesive, water-based adhesive, solvent-based adhesive.
2. WHAT EFFECTS DO THE ENVIRONMENT HAVE ON THE QUALITY STABILITY OF A GLUE?
If the product is stored in the freezer, how can a glue retain its adhesion for a long time in such harsh conditions?
If the weather is hot or humid, whether the adhesive is affected or not?
For any product, the bonding strength of the adhesive may be weakened by changing conditions such as:
- Level of light exposure
Therefore, it is necessary to research and analyze the factors affecting your product such as the production environment, conditions of use, storage conditions before proceeding to select and test the glue on the line.
3. APPROPRIATE AMOUNT OF GLUE WHEN USING
The amount of glue is sometimes important for some applications. High-adhesion glue is not always effective.
Using too much adhesive will sometimes affect the final use of the product. For example, for labeling glue, when the end-user separates the label, it is inconvenient because of the adhesive residue or the label remains.
Here are some applications that need a small amount of glue:
- Personal technology equipment labeling
- Household labeling
- Grocery products labeling
- Food packaging labeling
- Stamps against counterfeiting labeling
For each application or specific request from customers, VALONA always constantly research and develop to improve the quality and create a variety of product lines to give consumers more choices. This not only provides optimal efficiency but also ensures economic efficiency.
