Customers appreciate this special adhesive because it does not form char. When consumer products need to appear clean and sterile, darkly colored adhesive is not acceptable. Charring frequently results when conventional hot melt adhesives that require heating to 350ºF (176ºC) are used. Conventional 350º hot melt adhesives emit volatiles that contribute to odors that plant personnel have had to live with until products such as this adhesive were introduced. Adhesive customers appreciate the absence of odors associated with volatiles and charred adhesive.
