Innovation at the Techtextil in Frankfurt
At Techtextil, Schaetti AG is to unveil Schaetti SLX 1390, a thermally curable one-component adhesive system boasting high adhesive strength and heat resistance thanks to its quick curing. The adhesive powder, developed in collaboration with a Swiss research institute, is ideal for bonding sensitive substrates such as leather, textiles and foams as it can be processed at low temperatures.
Individual solutions for a variety of applications
The Swiss company Schaetti AG develops polymers, and processes these into tailor-made thermoplastic synthetic powders. Based on many years of research and development in our production facilities and laboratories, we offer a very wide range of polymers and polymer modifications for an array of application.
Apparel: bonding in place of sewing
Thermoplastic hot-melt adhesive powders are an ideal substitute for needle and thread in the apparel industry. Our products are suited for the protective adhesion of interlinings, seam and zip seals, and hem adhesion in ladies’ and men’s outerwear. They allow various fabrics and material compounds to be bonded in a wide range of temperatures with no adverse effect and to be glued together safely and cleanly.
Shoes: adhesives for a strong grip
Schaetti Fix 2047 is the solution for superior adhesion in the manufacture of shoes. Thermoplastic powder is utilized primarily for durable adhesion of toe-puffs, shoe lining materials and soles. The required characteristics of Schaetti Fixproducts are optimized and distinguished by high durability. They are solvent-free, are low in emissions, environmentally-friendly and conform to OekoTex standards.
Automotive construction: technical adhesives
Schaetti Fix SF 386is ideal for bonding textiles and fabrics onto plastics, metals and other materials for interior trim. The product distinguishes itself through its high resistance to humidity, water and dry cleaning. The thermoplastic adhesive is solvent-free, low in emissions, environmentally-friendly and conforms to OekoTex standards.
Buildings and Landscaping: longer lasting
Schaetti Fix polyolefin-based products lend themselves especially to waterproofing and sound insulation, both internally and externally. Scope of application of thermoplastic polymers and non-woven fabrics: Breathable roofing underlay for waterproofing roofs having high temperature stability.
Furniture and carpets: adhesives for high wear resistance
The use of polyester in interior design has clear benefits: gluing is quicker, is kinder on the material, increases rigidity and also provides for an aesthetically significantly more pleasing finish. Schaetti Fix 3230is a low melting polyester having excellent powers of adhesion for vinyl or urethane foam-based textiles. Our modified HDPE are beneficially used for trade fair carpets, where high-wear resistance is paramount.
