The change from EVA based to mPO (Mettalocene) based adhesives is an important development,with our Technomelt Supra products delivering lower adhesive usage and lower maintenance costs. For more information please see our mPO page.
Previously degraded and charred adhesive will be generally dislodged, as well as various other impurities such as paper fibres, dust etc, which adhere to the tank walls and inside the hoses. We at Interlock Adhesives will be able to assist you in order to ensure a smooth change over to Technomelt Supra.
It is very important to clean your machine, inside the tank, manifold and hoses as the EVA and mPO have different chemical make ups and don’t mix. We have a range of appropriate cleaners which will aid you in the process, please contact us for further information. We have produced the following procedure for to guide you through the changeover. This is a general guide and machines may differ. This is your responsibility but please contact us with any questions and we will be happy to help.
We recommend that you clean your system 2-3 months after the change over to remove any dislodged char etc. We would be happy to advise you on your specific requirements and to guide you through the change over, please contact us.
