Tecbond 14 – The fast-setting packaging adhesive to save you time

Continuing with our monthly profiling of adhesives in our range, this month we’ll be looking at tecbond 14.

Tecbond 14 is a very fast-setting packaging adhesive designed for use on most paper and board substrates. It is ideal for carton closing and tray forming, and suitable for speciality packaging, point of sale, and wrap-around cartons.

The adhesive is formulated to maximise delivery rate and sets very fast when compressed. These two features mean packages can be secured in a fraction of the time when compared to taping or stapling. There’s also no need to hold the materials in place as the bond is almost instantaneous. The bonding power of the adhesive adds structural strength to the carton, so packaging material can be thinner without compromising rigidity. The low viscosity of tecbond 14 improves gun output, reduces stringing, and provides a close, strong bond on many types of board surfaces.

Tecbond 14 is one of our best-selling adhesives due to its ease of use, cost-effectiveness, and overall bond strength.

Lee Stegall, Power Adhesives sales manager for the United States, had the below to say on tecbond 14:

“Tecbond 14 has been our go-to performance packing grade for almost 20 years. It is versatile, with great adhesion, and runs through the applicators smoothly. Many of our customers really appreciate the ease of use of tecbond 14 due to the low viscosity and almost instant grab! It also boasts the claim of having over 40% of its content being sustainably sourced.”

Designed to work in tandem with our range of corded and cordless tec glue guns, tecbond 14 is available in 12mm and 15mm sticks, and 43mm slugs. The adhesive can be run continuously through the applicators without requiring nozzle changes or cleaning, making it a less expensive and more equipment-friendly alternative to water-based adhesives. As with many adhesives in the tecbond range, tecbond 14 has a near limitless shelf life if stored in a dry, cool environment, ensuring you always have adhesive when required.

If you’d like any additional information about tecbond 14 or would like to request a sample, do not hesitate to contact our sales team.
