This company’s automotive group has introduced TECHNOMELT XPO 1050, a polyolefin-based hot melt that can reportedly bond a variety of interior-related substrates without the need for pretreatment of the plastic surface. Used in the development of a number of interiors applications, including door panels, rear package trays, pillar trims and instrument panels, the hot melt is applied through a roll coating process, requiring less adhesive than typical sprayable adhesives while eliminating as much as 25% overspray waste.

“TECHNOMELT XPO 1050 can reduce vehicle mass by 0.8 to 2.2 kg per vehicle,” said Mark Neuenschwander, Market Segment manager. “In addition to weight savings, the technology provides cost savings advantages by eliminating the need for heat ovens and tunnels and pretreatment flame equipment or additional surface primers.”
