Product Details Supplier Info More products

Techsil and Power Adhesives have launched Tecbond 263, a high-performance polypropylene-based hot-melt adhesive that bonds polypropylene quickly and efficiently. The product is expected to appeal the automotive industry in particular.

Polypropylene is a high-tonnage polymer that is commonly used in many industrial sectors, such as textiles, automotive, packaging and consumer goods. Its chemical inertness has reduced its use in some industrial applications because it is difficult to bond to itself and other substrates such as aluminium and steel.

Tecbond 263 has been developed to meet the changing demands for increased productivity in areas such as automotive seating and moulded parts and other industries looking to replace ABS for the more cost-effective polypropylene parts.

Key information

  • Tecbond 263 is available in 12mm and 15mm sticks and 43mm slugs.
  • Pre-treatment of the surfaces is not required.
  • Tecbond 263 is applied hot from a standard 195°C gun.
  • The hot-melt adhesive has a medium to long open time.
  • Once the heat has dissipated, the surfaces will be bonded and high tear, peel and lap shear values are achievable.
