Most people know solvents are bad, but they don’t always know why. Short term effects include dizziness, fatigue, and irritation of the eyes and respiratory system. Long term effects include damage to the heart, skin, blood vessels, liver, kidneys, bone marrow, and nervous system. Humans are exposed to solvents by inhaling fumes, absorbing mist, or touching a liquid that contains solvents.
HMT’s hot melt adhesives are solvent-free and provide a superior bond. Also, curing is 80% complete within seconds. That means bonded materials are ready for immediate fabrication which saves you time, labor, and square feet (no need to have a room for curing panels). HMT’s solvent-free adhesives have a long shelf life and contain no water.
