Lohmann’s TwinMelt process promises sustainable bonding solutions without solvents

Lohmann has developed a new bonding process, TwinMelt, which combines different acrylic and synthetic rubber constituents to make a range of solvent-free bonding compounds.

Lohmann said: “By means of a smart process which even allows for a combination of different materials, features and properties, new carrier materials, solvent-free acrylic and rubber systems are used for individual customer requirements and toll coating in every industry; from automotive, graphics, home appliance & electronics to industrial and medical.”

Acrylic and rubber systems form the basis for TwinMelt technology and enable the generation of solvent-free compounds.

Acrylic systems are said to offer low VOC values, clarity and transparency, biocompatibility, suitability for direct and indirect contact with food and high chemical resistance. Synthetic rubber systems are said to offer exceptionally good adhesive properties (in terms of peel strength and tack), suitability for low-energy surfaces and biocompatibility.

Coatings are available for any carrier, including paper, textile and film.
