Low pressure moulding materials
Our overmoulding services are based on Henkel Corporation’s brand of thermoplastic hot-melt adhesives called Technomelt (previously known as “Macromelt”), which offer superior overmoulding properties.
While there are many alternatives, we have chosen to work closely with the compounds from Henkel Corporation because this material consistently provides excellent results. The method also offers a cost-effective, reliable product and superior sealing — allowing our electronics experts to create high-quality, durable overmoulding projects which reduce negative impacts on the environment.
Based on natural fatty acids
Good adhesion to plastics like PA6.6, ABS and PVC
Wide service temperature range
Each grade of material is available in both amber and black

Bespoke colours are available
We’ll be there to offer our manufacturing guidance and expertise to support you across the entirety of the project.
Moisture and solvent-resistance requirements will be key factors in selecting a specific grade of material (the softer materials generally offer the best adhesive properties). It’s also important to be aware that most Technomelt moulding materials don’t have good resistance to solvents in combination with mechanical stress.
