Our Knowledge and Experience at work

Our New Full-Care™ Premium Hot Melt Adhesives are built on the years of experience in developing and bringing to market other nonwoven innovations, including specialty adhesives such as:

HydroLock™ Absorbent Hot Melt
Patented technology from H.B. Fuller, HydroLock Absorbent Hot Melt is a thermoplastic material
formulated to absorb water and other fluids, like a standard SAP (Super Absorbent Polymer).
Key Benefits

  • Targeted absorbency – Applied molten, HydroLock™ Absorbent Hot Melt stays where placed and acts on demand, giving control for maximized fluid management
  • No side leakage – Provides excellent protection when applied as strip-barrier around the core
  • Keeps the user drier – Moisture is quickly pulled away from the skin to the outer layers of the device
  • No mess – Eliminates the handling of dusty powdered SAP

Hydralert™ Wetness Indicating Hot Melt
H.B. Fullerʼs Hydralert™ Hot Melt gives you FAST and DISTINCT colour change performance at the time of wetness. This innovative new product has all the critical performance and cost management elements you demand in a wetness indicator application.
Key Benefits

  • High humidity resistance virtually eliminates premature colour change
  • Improved thermal stability with good machining as compared to competitive wetness indicators
  • Distinct colour happens immediately in response to wetness and is a definitive visual change that lasts

Full-Hook™ Adhesives
The Full-Hook™ family of adhesives is designed to deliver superior performance and value in hook and loop fastening systems. Full-Hook™ adhesives enable manufacturers to gain total control of tab assembly and reduce manufacturing costs.
Key Benefits

  • Product performance advantages include superior shear performance, with no need for ultra-sonic welding, result is a strong bond that is soft and flexible
  • Cost reductions can result from two alternative uses of the Full Hook™ technology:
    1. by eliminating the extra step of off-line converting or
    2. by reducing coat weights when using Full Hook™ adhesives in on-line processes

Our Focus is Clear. Perfecting Adhesives.

Economic Care

Positive impact on production efficiencies and adhesive mileage
All Full-Care™ hot melt adhesives are uniquely formulated to deliver the desired performance.
Excellent thermal stability is a minimum standard, and the performance of Full-Care™ hot melt adhesives goes much further than this.

Production efficiencies are positively impacted by the correct balance of adhesive properties to ensure clean running, with the goal of eliminating adhesive related downtime. Bond strength performance is optimised to facilitate the use of thinner, lower cost materials or to simply reduce the amount of adhesive applied.

We enlist our technical know-how and performance modelling techniques to develop the adhesive to meet your needs. Our customers can rest assured that Full-Care™ adhesive will enable the performance needed from the start; crucial for maintaining production output and efficiency.

Our in-house coating capabilities allow us to simulate many application processes such as slot, spiral or spray to produce a variety of constructions between nonwoven, polyethylene and elastic substrates. The performance of the adhesive in the various constructions is then subjected to the rigours of our unique performance testing, ensuring all new products have their performance fine-tuned before being presented to the customer.

Supply Care

Full portfolio of technologies including polyolefin for enhanced supply flexibility
Over the past few years, we have all experienced the pain caused by the global tightness in the supply of adhesive raw materials. Customer supply continuity is our top priority.

Our Full-Care™ hot melt adhesive formulations use polymers derived from both crude oil and natural gas. Our market leading range of Full-Care™ adhesives has been developed using all the alternate technology bases, including H.B. Fullerʼs market leading 3rd generation olefin technology, so providing enhanced supply flexibility for our customers.

Our long history in formulating with a broad technology base enables us to be proactive in times of supply challenges; quickly sourcing proven alternatives to provide our customers with a supply solution and avoid any downtime.
