Detailed description

1623 is a thermoplastic hot melt developed for edge-banding of more difficult edging materials such as thick solid wood, high pressure laminate & impregnated papers. This is achieved by good flow properties combined with fast melt down, low fume & odour and excellent thermal stability. In addition good heat resistance is demonstrated in the finished product with the majority of edging types, and 1623 can be run on most commercial edge-banders both continuously & intermittently.
