As part of Wisdom Adhesives’ overall strategic plan to continue on its path as the leading customer focused adhesive supplier in the industry, Wisdom Adhesives announces the introduction of a new & improved ClearBond™ Hot Melt adhesive technology for the Packaging Industry. Key features of the product line are listed below:

  • Economical – from an extended mileage, performance and density standpoint. Compares favorably vs. competitive EVA and other olefin based adhesive products. Up to 35% savings!
  • ClearBond adhesives offer excellent adhesion properties.
  • ClearBond adhesives offer excellent thermal & pot-stability – best in adhesive industry.
  • Clear / White in color.
  • ClearBond adhesives offer increased mileage due to lower density and higher performance – often resulting in a minimum of a 35% reduction to the overall cost vs. standard competitive products.
  • Eliminate downtime and maintenance costs.
  • Eliminate gels and charring.
  • Low to no odor.
  • Extended runability – excellent pot stability.
  • New technology is easy to run and easy to use. Just another reason to convert to Wisdom Adhesives.

Note: The above results are based on actual field information. Results may vary depending on type of finished product being made and process conditions. Cost comparison may vary depending on actual pricing.

THERMAL STABILITY

Improved Mileage: ClearBond Technology can be expected to save 25-50% advantage in mileage based on superior aggressive adhesion technology (lowering bead size) and lower density not factored above in savings example (0.93 vs. 0.97); both resulting in the use of less adhesive usage vs. EVA based technology.

Better Thermal Pot Stability: Better pot stability will result in longer pot-life for less waste, wider service temperature range, reduced downtime and maintenance costs and adherence to a wider range of surfaces.  No downtime!
