A customised solution for any challenge

When it comes to successfully producing and compounding hot-melt adhesives, there are several decisive factors: the targeted meltability of different formulation components, extremely short compounding times of just a few minutes, an extruded material of constant homogeneity, a low-shear and material-friendly compounding process, and effective cooling over a short distance.


The solution: our Planetary Roller Extruder

Hot-melt adhesives are thermoplastic adhesives that solidify at room temperature and which are based on various chemical raw materials. With reactive processes, the challenge lies in combining various substances with different chemical and physical properties (or thermal and mechanical stress limits) according to a specific formulation. The reliable compounding and reaction technology offered by the ENTEX Planetary Roller Extruder (PRE) is ideally suited for compounding various hot-melt adhesives. Thanks to the individually configurable modular construction of the extruder module, it is also possible to implement reactive compounding and homogenisation processes for adhesives.
