White goods are household appliances such as washing machines, tumble dryers, dishwashers, refrigerators, etc., that are in daily use and expected to have a very long service life. Washing machines and dishwashers, for instance, have to endure stresses such as vibrations, heat and moisture. The adhesives used in such products play a key role in achieving a long life cycle.
Our adhesives are mainly used on the fronts and surfaces of household appliances. In table top bonding, a coated chipboard is glued to a robust and impact-resistant ABS frame, and the edge joints are sealed with a tough elastic PUR hotmelt. This provides a stable bond that can withstand all kinds of loads and stresses during use.
White goods are manufactured in highly automated production lines. Our KLEIBERIT 706.0 is suitable for use with robots and ideal for mechanical table-top bonding of white goods. The reactive PUR hotmelt reacts with the moisture on the glued materials and that of the air. As the adhesive cools down and turns solid, both physical curing and chemical cross-linking take place, positively influencing the properties of the bond.
- No blistering
No blisters will occur when using KLEIBERIT 706.0. A bead diameter of around 3 mm prevents blistering and ensures uniform curing.
KLEIBERIT 706.0 ensures excellent bonding between the ABS frame and the chipboard.
- Initial strength
KLEIBERIT 706.0 has a very high initial strength. The glued table tops can move on to the next processing stage after just a few minutes.
When properly processed, the elastic adhesive joint will last over the entire life cycle of the table top.
- Good processing with adhesive robots
