UFD coating and laminating technology on display.

At Filtration 2012 Booth 516 ITW Dynatec is providing the latest in hot melt adhesive equipment and technology for those requiring slot, bead or spray applications. On display is a coating and laminating technology known in the industry as UFD, or Uniform Fiber Deposition. This non-contact spray application for hot melt adhesives is ideal for laminating substrates together with little to no pressure drop. UFD applicators can achieve coat weights below 1 GSM with total control over fiber diameter and pattern density for even cross web distribution. The system produces very fine monofilament fibers similar to the way a spunbond material is made. Additional technologies for slot and bead applications are also on display.
