PAM FASTENING TECHNOLOGY: Hot-Melt Adhesive (6-24-09)

June 24, 2009

PAM Fastening Technology recently introduced a new hot-melt adhesive that creates a non-toxic bond between carpet tack or metal clips and finished concrete, fiber cement backer board, or wood before stretching carpet over a floor.

The Series UX 8012 Hot Melt Adhesive from PAM Fastening complements the company’s Model HB 220 Hot Melt Glue Gun that accommodates the temperature required to apply the adhesive.

Benefits of using the adhesive for the carpet installer include the strength of the bond and its five-minute set up time.

According to PAM Fastening, this results in greater productivity for the carpet installer since the installer doesn’t have to return the next day or wait hours for the adhesive to fully dry before stretching the carpet. Performance, the company said, is similar to a more costly pressure sensitive hot-melt adhesive.
