Here at Power adhesives, we research and manufacture many different grades of hot melt.
Every month, we will be profiling an adhesive from our range and talking about its uses, properties, and benefits.
This month we’ll be looking at tecbond 213.
Tecbond 213 is an economical, general-purpose adhesive, mainly used in the construction, manufacturing and woodworking industries, but also widely used in the packaging industry. According to our customers, tecbond 213 is the most cost-effective brown general purpose hot melt available on the market today.
This adhesive can effectively bond cardboard, untreated wood, plastics, and ceramics.
Thomas Hardt, Power Adhesives’ Customs and Exports Sales Manager, describes tecbond 213 as being at “the top end of the ‘low-cost glues’, touching the bottom edge of the ‘high performance’ products”. The adhesives’ multi-purpose capabilities and bond strength enable users to reduce their consumption, meaning tecbond 213’s cost-per-bond vastly outmatches its competitors.
Primarily used as a construction adhesive due to its high tack, the adhesive will stick almost instantly when compressed. This means there’s no clamping, or holding materials in place while they bond. It also boasts a longer open time, which means substrates can be adjusted for a short amount of time after compression before a strong bond is formed. This is ideal for when you need to manoeuvre the materials after initial compression, such as gripper rods for carpets.
Available in 12mm, 15mm and 43mm sticks and slugs, the adhesive works in tandem with our range of tec bead application glue guns. We have a range of corded and cordless versions available, from our compact and lightweight 300 and 800 series guns, through to our high-output corded 3000, 6000, and 7000 series guns. Our hot melt adhesives and glue guns are optimised to work together, achieving the best possible result with the least amount of effort and wastage.
Power Adhesives is dedicated to improving the performance and application of hot melt adhesive systems for users around the world.
