Conventional water-based adhesives are sensitive to low temperatures, especially when they fall below freezing point. The high water content makes the adhesives sensitive – because as soon as ice crystals form, the chemical formulation is attacked or even destroyed. After that, processing in the usual quality is no longer conceivable. This is why transport, storage and processing can be a real challenge during the cold season. SIMALFA® offers effective solutions to protect frost-sensitive products.
As an alternative to regular water-based adhesives, SIMALFA® offers frost-insensitive adhesive types for temperatures down to -15°C, an option for unheated plants, especially during the cold season.
