Using fewer resources to achieve the same output equals more efficiency. That’s what TECHNOMELT ADVANCE is designed to do, elevating your productivity and possibilities.
The various layers within a sanitary napkin’s construction require maintaining position and no bunching within the layers. Henkel’s TECHNOMELT® sanitary napkin construction adhesives are applied in a very efficient and sustainable way. Our menstrual hygiene materials provide a good adhesion ratio and reduce production flaws caused by material movement. Our adhesives are designed for top and backsheet construction, top and bottom tissue, acquisition distribution layer, and Air Laid/SAP paper.
Henkel developed adhesives specifically for positioning that keep sanitary pads where they are supposed to stay. Our TECHNOMELT® adhesives are used on sanitary napkin wings (side flaps) and the backsheet. These advanced sanitary napkin materials for positioning are specially designed for feminine care products to support both comfort and security to the consumer. TECHNOMELT® products provide high tack and good breathability to assure a secure fit for wing application and release paper application.
Critical to construction of the sanitary napkins is a stable and absorptive core. This keeps the integrity of the product and allows it to stay securely in place. Henkel’s TECHNOMELT® core adhesives are used to stabilize the napkin core. They provide excellent wet-strength, improved fluid handling and guaranteed discretion. Our sanitary napkin materials assure good wear for an active lifestyle for core efficiency and integrity.
Maximizing slot coating equipment uptime requires process optimization to avoid poor coverage, bleed-through, nozzle damage, and nozzle build-up. These issues are often related to incorrect process settings, poor equipment maintenance, substrate changes, or a combination of these elements.
Routine maintenance and proper safety measures help to avoid preventable injuries. This list of safety best practices. helps protect hot melt equipment operators against injury and reduce unexpected delays during production assemblies.
Having a system in place to prevent overfilling or underfilling hot melt tanks will keep the temperature of the tank consistent as well as prevent char from forming. Following these best practices helps prevent issues with hot melt tank refilling.
Fast-curing of melt adhesives are sensitive to heat, contaminants, and oxidation, which can cause char. This can lead to clogged hoses, filters, and nozzles, making it important to prevent char from forming as it can be difficult to remove.
When the hot melt adhesive is warmed too long, it can cause degradation. By implementing a tank setback mode, char, and discoloration can be avoided, reducing wait times due to reheating or cooling the hot melt adhesive.
