A comprehensive range of high-performance adhesives for filter media pleating and frame bonding from Jowat provides tailor-made products for almost any application in the manufacture of air filters. At this year’s Filtech, the international trade fair for the filtration technology industry, in Cologne/Germany from February 14-16, 2023, the company will be focusing on building filters and all related aspects.
Thermoplastic adhesives from Jowat SE, Detmold/Germany, for the pleating and frame assembly of particle filters are characterized by a wide range of adhesion and ensure bonding applications with sealing and forming properties with high process reliability. They facilitate high bond strengths with low application amounts as well as a long service life and superior quality of the filter elements. Jowatherm 262.25 is a tried-and-tested “all-rounder” for the manufacture of high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) and ultra-low penetration air (ULPA) filters. This ethyl vinyl acetate (EVA) hot melt adhesive supports high-speed manufacturing processes with processing temperatures starting from 125°C due to its short open time and a high green strength facilitating immediate handling.
Jowat also supplies modern polyurethane (PUR) hot melt adhesives for activated carbon binding and for the lamination of multilayer filter elements with minimal application amounts. Within that range, the company also supplies a monomer-reduced product with hazard-free labeling: Jowatherm Reaktant MR 614.50. The relatively low application temperature of the adhesive, between 100°C and 120°C, facilitates resource-efficient bonding processes.
The key benefit of this PUR hot melt adhesive is a very low monomer diisocyanate (MDI) content of less than 0.1% and therefore hazard-free labeling. In addition to increased occupational safety, this provides a further advantage starting from August 2023, at the latest. After that date, processors inside the EU will be required by law to complete a mandatory training before they are allowed to process products containing MDI. Products with hazard-free labeling are not subject to that requirement and can save resources.
