Henkel highlights adhesives for apparel
Adhesives offer a number of advantages over traditional underwear construction techniques such as sewing, Henkel said. These include high production efficiency, compatibility with a number of base materials, and flexible design.
The adhesive range also includes products for the sports and outdoors sectors. The company said that its hot melt adhesives glue well to PTFE films, building a strong waterproof barrier without affecting the breathability of technical outdoor clothes made from PTFE-coated fabrics.
