APAO Hot Melt Adhesive & Liquid Glue

When you do business with Pak-Tec, our experienced and knowledgeable team of specialists will provide the complete support you need. We have a long-standing commitment to responding to our customers’ needs, providing personalized service, and exceeding your expectations. 


Pak-Tec has partnered up with a global leader in hot melt glue systems and adhesive manufacturing to develop a premier line of melt on demand adhesive specifically tailored to the packaging industry.  Our focus is on maximizing adhesion, eliminating char, and providing our customers with the highest performing, most cost efficient melt on demand adhesive in the marketplace.

  • Reduced Consumption:  Deep fiber penetration and superior bonding characteristics allow you to apply less adhesive to achieve the same bond strength
  • Added Adhesion: Outstanding initial tack and fast set time ensure your cartons, cases, and trays won’t pop open
  • Improved Machining: Eliminates stringing (webbing) and improves control for precise placement and application patterns
  • Diminished Maintenance: Unmatched stability eliminates adhesive from charring and clogging equipment
  • Increased Value: Low specific gravity of adhesive translates to more volume per pound and higher-mileage.
  • Expanded Temperature Range:  Excellent service temperature range (-40 to 165F) for resistance to extreme temperatures. Ideal for bonding for freezer applications.

EVA – EVA (Ethylene – Vinyl Acetate) is a very economical option for hot melt adhesives and is a universal solution across packaging and product assembly applications.  This has a wide range of open time, viscosity, and applications temperature allowing this to be very versatile and is often ideal for the packaging industry.

METALLOCENE – Metallocene based hot melt adhesive is a relatively new innovation that started appearing in the marketplace in the late 1990’s. This new technology offers increased mileage, eliminates charring, and reduces stinging. The improved thermal stability greatly extends pot life. Additionally, the odor-free, nearly clear adhesive provides for a better end-product and work environment.

PUR – Polyurethane (PUR) reactive hot melt adhesive which bonds physically and chemically a wide range of substrates, porous and non-porous.  PUR hot melt can be formulated to accommodate open times from 5 seconds to 20 minutes.  Once cured, the bond is extremely durable with excellent resistance to heat, moisture, and aging. With wonderful adhesion to wood, metal and plastic substrates, PUR hot melt is ideal for many product-assembly applications including book-binding, construction materials, and edge-banding.

APAO – Amorphous Poly Alpha Olafins (APAO) adhesive is known for its soft, tacky, and flexible properties.  The low viscosity allows this adhesive to easily be sprayed, extruded, or roll coated.  Perfect for applications requiring long open times and heat resistance, APAO is an ideal adhesive for applications involving plastic substrates, general product assembly, or wire and cable.

PRESSURE-SENSITIVE – Pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) is a rubber-based adhesive which creates a bond through the initially applied pressure and compression.

FUGITIVE – Often referred to as “Credit Card glue” or “Booger Glue” due to its popularity in direct mailing applications, Fugitive glue is a removable, non-permanent type of pressure-sensitive adhesive.  The low-tack characteristics allow two substrates to be adhered with a temporary bond which is designed to release minimal residue.  In addition to direct mailing, this is often used for unique packaging applications.

LIQUID – Water based adhesive creates a very strong and fast setting bond across many substrates, porous and non-porous.  Liquid glue can easily be applied with a variety of application methods including brush, roller, extrusion, or spray. This adhesive is seen in packaging, product assembly and paper concerting.
