Henkel launched several products in UV-curing hotmelts and PUR-based adhesives at the recent Ligna trade fair. Fast cure and high strength are two of the features that distinguish the new Technomelt CHS 396 UV, which has been formulated for UV edge sealing. It fills gaps and seals off coarser edge structures, instantly forming a homogeneous, machine-grindable and smooth surface. This allows the use of very thin high-gloss finish foils during subsequent panel wrapping or permits the edges to be directly finished with lacquers. In contrast, the new Technomelt CHS 392 UV has been designed for finishing modern flooring systems and pairs high cure speed with a strength that meets the demanding requirements of abrasion class AC5. “Fusion Coating” is the name of a process at Henkel for coating a variety of melamine faced panels and this technology was also presented.
