Hotmelt For Nonwovens.

Elf Atochem now offers a variety of hotmelts for the garment and automotive industries. "Platamid" copolyaimde hotmelts are used for fusible interlinings in the garment industry to help preserve the original shape and appearance of garments after repeated laundering and drycleaning. "Platherm" copolyester hotmelts are used with nonwoyen interlinings for ladies' garments and blouses. 'Plathen" polyethylene and "Platabond" ethylene vinyl acetate copolymers are used in the textile sector for the manufacture of small items such as caps and

waistbands, as well as linings in the leather and footwear divisions. These hotmelts can also be used for technical laminations in the automotive industry for rear shelves, door trims and linings, as well as roof linings.
