Cattie Adhesives – Hot Melt System Cleaner

What is Hot Melt System Cleaner?

Hot Melt System Cleaner, also called “Hot Melt Purge” is an Organic, Non-Toxic, hot melt application equipment cleaning product that attacks the charred contaminants and hot melt in your tank, hoses and guns. It thoroughly cleans your hot melt equipment of char and gel, dissolves the charred adhesive, prevents clogged nozzles, and slows equipment failure.

Our Hot Melt Purge is organic, solvent-free and an excellent choice for cleaning your hot melt equipment. Regular cleaning of your hot melt equipment with our Hot Melt System Purge will add years to the life of your hot melt equipment, hoses, modules and heads.

Our Hot Melt Purge is a high strength, industrial grade cleaner that outperforms competitive products in purging or cleaning of hot melt tanks, hoses and guns. It removes degrading adhesive, gels and even char buildup from the sides of tanks and hoses.

Hot Melt Purge is a great option for simple equipment cleanup/maintenance –  Or when you are switching from one hot melt adhesive to another type.

Our Hot Melt System Purge can be used to clean:

  • EVA Hot Meltfiber_drum 55gal_steel_drum 5gal_pail Hot-Melt-Adhesive-mini chips
  • Polyolefin Hot Melt
  • Metallocene Hot Melt
  • APAO Hot Melt
  • Acrylic Hot Melt
  • Rubber-based PS Hot Melt
  • Polyamide Hot Melt
  • PUR Hot Melt

 

 


Cattie Adhesives recommends that all hot melt systems be cleaned and purged every 3 – 6 months,  Or whenever switching from one type of hot melt to another.

Our Hot Melt System Purge will:

  • Increase Machine Life – Regular cleaning extends the life of equipment by reducing slow pump stroke, nozzle clogs and premature hose failures.
  • Minimize Down Time – Helps avoid contamination that results in plugged nozzles and charring pots.
  • Maximize Efficiency – Over time normal wear and tear creates reduced efficiencies such as restricted hot melt flow and inaccurate bead placement.
  • Save Time – Preventative maintenance with a Hot Melt System Cleaner takes less time and money than emergency troubleshooting and repairs.
  • Produce Long-Term Savings – Reduces maintenance and unscheduled production shutdowns.

Newer hot melt technologies like low temperature EVA’s and Metallocene are formulated to run cleaner than previous hot melt formulations; this can lead us to think hot melt tank cleaning is no longer necessary. This is not true, as most hot melt tank and hose char is caused by foreign materials introduced to the hot melt tank or simply dust, dirt and products in the plant environment.

Routine hot melt system cleaning/maintenance is required in order to keep hot melt equipment running at peak performance, and productivity as high as possible. Most production downtime can be avoided with hot melt system cleaning and preventative maintenance.
