We are excited to announce the introduction of a new product line offered by L.D. Davis Industries called Planamelt.
For the past several months, L.D. Davis has been working with German-based glue company, Planatol Wetzel, to become the exclusive eastern U.S. distributor for their Planamelt product. Planamelt provides a long-lasting, high quality bond – even on the most challenging substrates. It can be used as spine glue and side glue for perfect-binding of catalogs, brochures, telephone directories, magazines etc. on common perfect-binding systems at high machine speed.
PUR or EVA? Planamelt combines PUR-like quality with the advantages of EVA glues in one system.
The benefit of Planamelt is it acts as a replacement for PUR without the equipment needed for PUR. Customers that are using an EVA hot melt right now will be able to use Planamelt as the next best option to PUR at a fraction of the cost. No equipment investment is needed to start using Planamelt.
