Hot Melt Adhesive by Bostik – Kizen industrial glue

Hot melt and hot melt pressure sensitive adhesive for packaging, sealing and labeling

KIZEN hot melt adhesives for packaging, case & box folding, carton sealing, tray forming, consumer goods and bag manufacturing. The new generation hot melt glue from Bostik breaks the face-to-face existing so far between EVA adhesive and metallocenes, placing itself in an intermediate price range, but which in the long term and with convincing studies, represents the greatest savings in materials and machine downtime due to applicator carbonisation. Hotmelt industrial food grade adhesive is ideal for food and beverage industries.

Bostik is a leading global adhesive (glue) specialist in construction, consumer and industrial markets. For more than a century, it has been developing innovative sealing and bonding solutions that are smarter and more adaptive to the forces that shape daily lives. From cradle to grave, from home to office, Bostik’s smart industrial food grade adhesives can be found everywhere.

  • What are hot melt adhesives?

    Hot melt adhesive (HMA) also know as hot glues can bond similar and dissimilar material. Hot melt adhesives are generally 100% solids formulations based on thermoplastic polymers. They are solid at room temperature and are activated upon heating.


    • Hot Melt Adhesive : Pellet form
    • Hot Melt Pressure Sensitive Adhesive: Freepack
  • How do hot melt adhesives work?

    Hot melt adhesives can bond similar and dissimilar materials. They are applied to an initial material when in a liquid or molten state. After a short open time, the second material is brought into contact. At this point, the adhesives cool down and set quickly, bonding the two together.

  • What to consider when applying hot melt adhesives?

    The following factors impact adhesive performance and should be considered when applying:

    • Temperature: The temperature must be hot enough so that the adhesive viscosity is low enough to adequately wet out the substrates and the materials can be assembled before cooling.
    • Add-on Level: The add-on level refers to the amount of adhesive used on a given application. This affects the adhesive wet-out to the secondary substrate by modifying the rate of cooling.
    • Open Time: The open time affects the adhesive temperature and wet-out.
    • Compression: Compression is the amount of pressure applied to laminate the substrates and primarily affects the bond to the secondary substrate.
    • Substrates: Substrate texture and chemistry affect adhesive bonding. Highly textured substrates allow for more mechanical adhesion. Highly surface energy substrates promote wet-out.
  • What are some benefits to using hot melt adhesives?

    From automotive and packaging to product assembly and pressure sensitive tapes and labels, hot melt adhesives have a range of applications. In addition to their versatility, hot melt adhesives offer the following benefits:

    • Long shelf life
    • Elimination of the curing step
    • No loss of thickness when solidifying
    • Little to no VOCs
