How is PA Hot Melt Adhesive Web Applied?
Preparation: Ensure that the fabric pieces you want to bond together are clean and free from any dust, dirt, or contaminants. This will help achieve a strong bond.
Cutting the Adhesive Web: The PA Hot Melt Adhesive Web
usually comes in rolls or sheets. You'll need to cut it into the desired shape and size to match the fabric pieces you're bonding.
Positioning: Place the adhesive web pieces between the layers of fabric where you want the bond to be formed. Make sure the adhesive is positioned evenly to cover the area you intend to bond.
Heat Application: Heat is required to activate the adhesive. This is typically done using a heat press machine. A heat press is a specialized device that applies heat and pressure evenly to the fabric and adhesive layers. The heat causes the adhesive to melt and flow, creating a strong bond as it cools and solidifies.
Pressing: Once the adhesive web is in place, the fabric stack is put into the heat press machine. The machine's heated plates will press down on the fabric and adhesive, applying even heat and pressure. The heat causes the adhesive to melt and penetrate the fabric fibers, creating a bond.
Cooling and Setting: After a specific amount of time (usually determined by the adhesive manufacturer's recommendations), the heat press is released, and the fabric is allowed to cool down. As the adhesive cools and solidifies, it forms a strong bond between the layers of fabric.
Quality Check: After the bonding process is complete and the fabric has cooled, it's a good idea to perform a quality check to ensure that the bond is secure and the fabric layers are properly adhered.
