"We ensure we are providing the Perfect Adhesive solution by stringent Laboratory Performance Testing before committing to line implementation."

As we are always striving to deliver the perfect solutions to each application – there can be many unknowns in our client’s minds surrounding new product and its performance and consistency. Our technical team know there are many variable involved in providing the perfect adhesive solution for any specific applications. We test and check our recommendations in the controlled environment of the laboratory before implementing on our customers lines. By doing this we can assure the recommendation is 99% proven before implementing on the line. As a result our trial failure rate is close to unblemished, giving our consultants and client peace of mind and assurance there will be limited loss of production.

Testing Procedures

To provide a solution an initial line audit is conducted. At this point line speeds, compression times, coat weights, nozzle sizes, bead density, board porosity and other details are recorded by the application consultant. Samples of substrates and product are also taken for laboratory tests to be performed on. At this point laboratory task is raised for our technical team to recommend the correct adhesive for the application.

A critical part of this process is to ensure the adhesive if proven in production replication tests. This ensures the bond will stand up to the specific demands of the applications. This process is a double check to eliminate potential on site test failures, which are costly and time consuming to the client.  By testing for each application we can assure the product viscosity, set time, open time, tackiness and other details are suited.

Tests such as extreme temperature variations, humidity variations, shear point, lateral resistance and other applicable methods are conducted. All laboratory test results are available to the client for review upon request.
