Hot Melt Glue

Hot melt glues are solid, polymer-based glues with formulas that contain no solvents or water, which allows them to rapidly reach peak bond strength. Hot melt glues offer an aggressive bond, clean machining and a reduced odor and char. They are thermoplastic, remaining their solid state at room temperature and liquefying upon heating, and provide ideal adhesion to substrates such as metals, plastics and paper. Hot melt glues are used in a wide variety of industries, including packaging, graphic arts, construction, electronics and automotive. As a distributor of hot melt glues for some of the largest global industrial glue manufacturers, LD Davis provides our customers with local hot melt warehousing, reduced freight costs, on-time delivery and immediate attention to their technical needs. We carry ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) hot melt glue, metallocene hot melt glue, fugitive hot melt glue and polyurethane reactive (PUR) hot melt glue and can create a custom formula for your specific needs. LD Davis hot melt glues are available in pellets, chubs and drums with a number of different packaging options.

“We have been purchasing glue from LD Davis for almost 20 years and have always been happy with their glue quality and technical assistance. We purchased a Kolbus DA260 case maker in October 2015. Once installed, our sales representative Kelly Benjamin came to our facility to trial their protein glue with us on the new equipment. The glue ran perfectly on the Kolbus machine. It was great having her there to answer any and all technical questions that we had throughout the trial process. The glue is still running great, and LD Davis’s policy of being present at every trial/test is very reassuring.”

“LD Davis Industries has been a valuable supplier of hot melt to our company for over 15 years. In our foam fabrication business, controlling overhead drives the bottom line. Many of our competitors have moved away from adhesive bonding to go to zero-cost heat bonding for some of our foam substrates. Our years of experience have shown that the hot melt supplied by LD Davis allows us the flexibility and versatility to provide durable, unique solutions to our customer’s needs. Tripp Davis and his team at LD Davis are well aware of the constant overhead and pricing pressures we face, and constantly work to find us the price-to-performance products that our ever-changing business require. Great product only gets you so far if you can’t get it. LD Davis’s ability to handle all aspects of the supply chain-manufacturing, warehousing, and just-in-time delivery gives our company a competitive advantage in our market that we need.”
