HDK LAUNCHES NEW NONWOVEN WEB ADHESIVE

Exclusively by HDK, nonwoven web adhesives are typically used in composites and act as the bonding layer. The nonwoven can either replace an existing scrim or simply add to the strength of the final product. Adhesive powders can be applied to either one or both sides of the nonwoven, depending on the final application.
