Technomelt AS 8998 Hot Melt Adhesive
A new and efficient masking technique for conformal coating processes, Technomelt AS 8998 is a silicone free, halogen free, hot melt adhesive. This innovative material can be applied precisely using automated dispensing systems reducing process time and labor costs. It offers an ultra-fast processing and solidification time and it is compatible with Henkel conformal coatings. Application temperature is 150 to 180°C. AS 8998 Hot Melt is recommended for masking off areas that need protection before application of conformal coatings.
Technomelt AS 8998 Hot Melt Adhesive has a softening point of 100°C, Shore 10A hardness, and 733% elongation at break. When bonding to a substrate with high thermal conductivity, the use of a specific temperature is required for good wetting. The hot melt is formulated to have excellent slump resistance up to 100°C. No outgassing during the coating process and is easily peeled leaving no residues. It is a new alternative to manual taping. The benefits of AS 8998 includes no curing required, odorless, automation capability and is easy to remove.
It is strongly recommended to read and understand the Technomelt AS 8998 MSDS before handling. When using Technomelt AS 8998 do not use heat. All substrates should be clean, dry, free of dust, oil, grease and other contaminates. This will cause the quality of the material to degrade and in extreme cases it will cause carbonization. Carbonized and set non thermoplastic material needs to be removed mechanically. Removal can be completed with a solvent-free cleaning system. Store material in a cool dry place in its tightly sealed container. Prevent from freezing. For more information about the product, ask an expert from Krayden.
Technomelt AS 8998 Hot Melt Adhesive is an innovative product that is formulated with excellent slump resistance and is compatible with most conformal coating materials in the industry. It is a simple solution replacing tape, jig, liquid and UV masks. More information can be found on the Technomelt AS 8998 Hot Melt Adhesive Technical Data Sheet.
