It has a good early viscous force and stable viscous force. Because the product itself is a solid, which is easy to pack, transport, store, and its production technology is simple, along with high value-added, high bonding strength, quick speed, no solvent, no pollution, non-toxic tasteless properties, these advantages in environmental protection make it more and more popular and welcomed by people. Nowadays, hot melt adhesive has been widely used in the label industry, on the contrary, it also promoted the development of the label adhesive industry.
