It’s becoming an increasingly important trend; using hotmelt-adhesive to make paper, textile and plastics self adhesive. We produce transfer tapes, heat-reactive tapes, double sided tapes (with or without differential coating and foam tapes up to a breadth of 1600 mm using this technique.
Some of the great advantages of using hotmelt coating instead of normal laminating:
- More engergy efficientand therefore better for the enviroment
- The ability to use it on harsh materials
- Very consistent quality of the laminate
- Savings on adhesives
- Shorter production time
Oil and gas industry
Slittech develops flexible hosing solutions for the oil and gas industry. Corrosion on traditional steel pipes can create a negative impact on the enviroment. Slittech and our partners have come up with a unique and low-cost concept based on existing flexible composite pipes. This solution won’t suffer from corrosion. This keeps costs down for maintenance and spares the environment from leaking pipes.
The hotmelt coating from Slittech processes up to a breadth of 1000 mm and is continuously variable. In short: one small piece of specialty results in optimum quality and a competitive price.
