Adhesives for outdoor and sports clothing
Breathable sports and outdoor clothing consists of a two- or three-layer textile laminate whose layers are bonded together. Such textiles have to be reliably weatherproof and provide excellent thermal insulation. A membrane prevents water getting in, while allowing moisture to escape. For comfortable wear, the adhesive used for seams, etc., also has to have a soft textile feel. KLEIBERIT offers a wide variety of sophisticated adhesive systems and the matching expertise to realize the bonding in an efficient production process.
Typical uses are:
- softshell jackets
- fishing jackets
- rain jackets
- shoe uppers
PUR hotmelts have unparalleled bonding properties and can be adapted to specific production processes, making them a popular choice in industrial textile production. The textiles are usually laminated in a roll-to-roll process, with the hotmelt being applied with screen or engraving rollers.
Hotmelts that can be processed at low temperatures are in high demand in the textile industry: they can be used with temperature-sensitive materials and the production process is less energy-intensive. Low-emission adhesives are also gaining popularity. Our monomer-reduced PUR hotmelt KLEIBERIT 701.6.03 can be used without compromising on either the production process or the quality of the final product.
