Benefits of TECHNOMELT™
Henkel’s TECHNOMELT™ materials are commonly used in a tremendous range of applications — everything from circuit board protection, sensitive electronic components, food packaging and labels, optical cables, high speed electronics, wearable electronics and strain relief on all kinds of connectors and cables.
Across the board, TECHNOMELT™ materials offer a number of benefits over other hot melt adhesive and traditional potting materials:
Superior adhesion — While some TECHNOMELT™ materials adhere more strongly to certain materials than others, they all offer excellent adhesion to a variety of materials, including engineered plastics, cables, and metals
Less weight and smaller footprint — TECHNOMELT™ materials are specially engineered to offer exceptional adhesion and sealing without adding unnecessary bulk or weight
Zero waste — The low pressure injection molding process used with TECHNOMELT™ materials eliminates production waste
No curing — After molding, TECHNOMELT™ materials do not require any curing time, helping to shorten your lead times
Robert McKeown does more than just supply raw TECHNOMELT™ material pellets — we offer contract manufacturing, as well. Using state-of-the-art equipment from LPMS USA, one of few companies that manufacture TECHNOMELT™-compatible low pressure molding systems, we can provide your delicate electronics with the protection they need quickly, efficiently, and effectively.
