Flatbed lamination with thermoplastic adhesives is a specific lamination process that involves using adhesives that soften and become tacky when exposed to heat. Flatbed lamination machines are widely used to produce various parts dedicated for such markets as automotive, public transportation including aviation, textile, shoe, industrial, sound and thermal insulations, production of lightweight complexes and many others.
Thermoplastic adhesives have the property of becoming soft and sticky when heated, making them suitable for this application. Examples of thermoplastic adhesives include modified polymers, such as Copolyamide, Copolyester, Polyolefin, Polyurethane, EVA, TPU etc
Such adhesives are available in many forms, as granulates, powders, nets, films and WEBs.
The heat from the laminator activates the adhesive, causing it to soften and bond with the other material. Pressure is also applied to ensure a secure bond. After lamination, the laminated material is allowed to cool. The adhesive cools and solidifies, creating a strong bond. In some cases, curing may be required to achieve the desired level of adhesion strength.
