Techtextil/Texprocess 2015: Jowat
Innovative adhesives interiors
Jowat SE is attending this year’s trade shows under the headline “think differently“. With the new moisture-curing polyurethane hot melt adhesives from the product series Jowatherm-Reaktant PUR Tex introduced by Jowat SE, new standards are established, especially in the areas breathability and washing resistance.
Good adhesion on a variety of membranes and textiles and high compound strength round off the multiple advantages of these new PUR hot melts. The consistent introduction of innovative new raw materials led to adhesive formulations with characteristics unknown so far, and an extraordinary elasticity and soft handle of the laminated textiles. Highly challenging for the finishing process of membrane lamination are textiles that have already been impregnated with fluorocarbons for improved water repellence with difficult to bond surfaces. Utilizing the new, breathable adhesives from Jowat supports the optimization of the laminating processes, with reduced pressing times, higher reproducibility and improved handling flexibility of the base materials and laminates.
Apart from numerous other applications for adhesives in automotive interiors, Jowat SE is focusing on products for the lamination of automotive interior panelling.
The VACFLOW method, developed jointly by Jowat SE and solution partner companies, ensures that the manufacture of pilot production components is less time- and cost-intensive, processes are more reliable, waste in serial production is reduced and the finished component has a clearly lower weight. A complete range of reactive PUR / POR and PO hot melt adhesives from the product series Jowatherm-Reaktant and Jowat-Toptherm is ready to be used in the VACFLOW process.
