Robust Full-Care™ solutions offering the functional benefit of helping to lower in-use cost.

Full-Care™ Product Range

Construction
The range of Full-Care™ hot melt adhesives for construction applications are formulated to deliver consistent performance, both on the machine and on the final product.

  • High performance range of adhesives formulated using the full portfolio of technologies for enhanced supply flexibility
  • Performance focused on delivering
    - Strong adhesive performance to ensure core integrity
    - High bonding strengths
    - Excellent wet peel
    - Light colour
    - Virtually no odour
  • Low strike through or non-blocking performance on the line, after packing and during transportation and storage
  • Versatile application performance achieved across all spray application methods

Core
As the market-leader in adhesives for thinner cores, we have used our experience and technical know-how to develop Full-Care™ hot melt adhesives that provide enhanced core integrity for thinner diapers.

  • Delayed crystallisation technology provides high core integrity
    - Significantly improved wet strength in comparison to conventional construction adhesives
  • Versatile Application
    - Direct sprayed or transfer sprayed
  • Lower cost in use
    - Diapers will be thinner with improved integrity and can offer cost savings

Positioning
Continuous innovation in the end-use product ranging from ultra-thin and modified shapes to biodegradable materials require high performance adhesive technology to deliver the desired functionality to the consumer. The Full-Care™ range of hot melt adhesives for positioning delivers versatile high performance enabling the continuous development of the end-use product.

  • High peel positioning performance for all back sheets and application methods
    - Performance maintained on both PE and NW back sheets whether applied by transfer slot or direct spray.
  • High tack allows for coatweight reduction
  • Excellent staining resistance performance on breathable PE
  • Low in-use cost impact can be achieved through:
    - coat-weight reduction
    - production flexibility
    - application and substrate type

Elastic
The range of Full-Care™ hot melt adhesives for elastic attachment are designed to meet the challenges of this demanding application, providing consistent performance during manufacturing and bond security in use.

  • Versatile application performance achieved across all common elastic attachment methods
    - Random spray, spiral spray, direct strand coating
  • Strong adhesive performance to ensure elastic bonding
    - High bond strength achieved at low coat weights
    - High cohesive strength
    - Light colour, low odour
    - Excellent creep results with various elastic materials such as Fullflex, Spandex, Lycra
  • Proven performance on curved elastic applications

Our Knowledge and Experience at work

Our New Full-Care™ Premium Hot Melt Adhesives are built on the years of experience in developing and bringing to market other nonwoven innovations, including specialty adhesives such as:

HydroLock™ Absorbent Hot Melt
Patented technology from H.B. Fuller, HydroLock Absorbent Hot Melt is a thermoplastic material
formulated to absorb water and other fluids, like a standard SAP (Super Absorbent Polymer).
Key Benefits

  • Targeted absorbency – Applied molten, HydroLock™ Absorbent Hot Melt stays where placed and acts on demand, giving control for maximized fluid management
  • No side leakage – Provides excellent protection when applied as strip-barrier around the core
  • Keeps the user drier – Moisture is quickly pulled away from the skin to the outer layers of the device
  • No mess – Eliminates the handling of dusty powdered SAP

Hydralert™ Wetness Indicating Hot Melt
H.B. Fullerʼs Hydralert™ Hot Melt gives you FAST and DISTINCT colour change performance at the time of wetness. This innovative new product has all the critical performance and cost management elements you demand in a wetness indicator application.
Key Benefits

  • High humidity resistance virtually eliminates premature colour change
  • Improved thermal stability with good machining as compared to competitive wetness indicators
  • Distinct colour happens immediately in response to wetness and is a definitive visual change that lasts

Full-Hook™ Adhesives
The Full-Hook™ family of adhesives is designed to deliver superior performance and value in hook and loop fastening systems. Full-Hook™ adhesives enable manufacturers to gain total control of tab assembly and reduce manufacturing costs.
Key Benefits

  • Product performance advantages include superior shear performance, with no need for ultra-sonic welding, result is a strong bond that is soft and flexible
  • Cost reductions can result from two alternative uses of the Full Hook™ technology:
    1. by eliminating the extra step of off-line converting or
    2. by reducing coat weights when using Full Hook™ adhesives in on-line processes

Our Focus is Clear. Perfecting Adhesives.
