Martin Weller, H.B. Fuller scientist for automotive.

Dr. Martin Weller

Martin Weller is a research scientist in H.B. Fuller’s Automotive business. Martin is an expert in reactive and non-reactive hot melt adhesives with over 18 years developing and overseeing the development of new products and technologies. He holds a Ph.D. in organic chemistry from the University of Karlsruhe in Germany.

Increasing standards for interior trim part durability create the need for Reactive Hot Melt (RHM) adhesives with high heat and hydrolysis resistance as well as enhanced plasticizer resistance. PVC and TPO foil-backed foams with PVC foam, while commonly used, remain challenging substrates due to their shape memory and plasticizer content. Quality laminations require adhesives that meet these new requirements. New RHM technology and products enable manufacturers to meet this challenge while maintaining or improving safety and productivity.
