There are many more LEAD CHEMICALS smart adhesives to discover, from sound-damping innovations to superior creep test performers.
There are normal headliners and sun proof headliners. The substrates for these applications can be non-woven, sheet metal, wool, foam, electric cord, and ABS.
Our Eco friendly hot melt adhesives satisfy the demands of bonding, lamination and fixation.
Oil Filter Adhesive
Oil filter applications include auto engine oil filter, scooter engine oil filter, and auto ignition system filter.
Besides the pleating glue and frame assembly glue, cap sealing and filter paper positioning are also the important applications of oil filters. Eco-friendly hot melt adhesives are most suitable grades for these due to good oil resistance and heat resistance.
Air Filter Adhesive
We tailor suitable hot melt adhesives for filters on the basis of production speeds, pleat numbers, and filtration media, which could be glass fiber, PET, PTFE, PP, paper, etc… We make sure the distance between each pleat is fixed, satisfy the demands of heat resistance & cold resistance, and offer good bonding strength, low shrinkage rate, which will not allow product deformation.
Hot melt adhesives assist filter shaping, and can be applied on filter pleating, filter, assembly, cap fixing and bonding, hollow fiber stuffing, bonding two sides of filtration media, bag stitched, and sealing of stitched holes.
The major applications of automotive lamps are assemblies of head lamp, tail lamp and fog lamp. We offer Polyolefin based, Rubber based and PUR based hot melt adhesives respectively for different operation demands.

Smart adhesives for long-lasting and legible tire label adhesion
We supply customers throughout the entire tire label supply chain - be they in the production, conversion, printing or application of labels. We’re committed to supplying the adhesives our customers need for tire labels that are clear and legible with a sleek finish, and that can bear the brunt of extreme storage and transportation conditions.
Having specialized in smart and durable adhesive technologies more than ten years, our knowledgeable research and development teams are equipped to provide tire labels with the strong, smart adhesions and chemical properties our customers demand.
Tire labels: adhesive applications
The adhesive products we engineer to be compatible with vehicle tire labels are formulated to provide exceptional grab and a tenacious bond. Not only that, but their polyvalent properties provide exceptional long term adhesion and gap-fill over all kinds of irregular surfaces and face materials.
We are constantly adapting our chemical engineering processes to optimize the productivity of our end users. That is why our tire label adhesives consistently provide excellent die-cutting capabilities, even at a high coating weight.
Our adhesive solutions ensure that the most important information on tire labels is flawlessly clear – from load indexes, to temperature grades and tire traction specifications.
Repeated mechanical and load stresses, extended inventory duration, and extreme temperatures are no match for our tough label adhesives. Our tire-specific products are also fabricated with coarse, oily surfaces in mind, so by choosing an our product, you can rest assured the sprues on new tires won’t hinder our adhesive’s ability to stick labels down.
