Henkel's Urethane Hot Melt Adhesive

To reduce distortion of FRP panels exposed to direct sunlight, Henkel Corp. has introduced a new urethane hot melt adhesive formulated to withstand high temperatures in excess of 200F. PurmeltA(R)R-200F+ improves distortion resistance up to five times longer than traditional polyurethane adhesives, and allows manufacturers to use dark graphics and full-body paint on sidewall designs.

Suitable for roll coating processes, patent-pending Purmelt R-200F+ was developed to allow RV manufacturers to create aesthetically pleasing graphics and paint schemes without straining the fiberglass-reinforced plastic substrates on exposure to sunlight.
