Nitrogen for Hot Melt applications

When processing Hotmelts, nitrogen can be used to make a foam from the liquid polymer adhesive. However, it is usually used to prevent the glue from hardening / charring. This negative reaction also occurs when the product comes into contact with oxygen. This process can be counteracted by providing storage tanks with a layer of nitrogen and/or using nitrogen as a propellant during the processing of the adhesive.

Nitrogen for Hot Melt process

Avilo has been supplying systems to both large and small processors/users of hotmelts for more than 10 years. In contract of a manufacturer of hot melt systems we’ve even developed a compact generator that produces exactly the right amount and purity of nitrogen to be used at the point of use at the application head. Of course we offer a suitable generator for all types of hot melt systems.
