CO-POLYESTER (CoPES-Hotmelt adhesive)
A very good laundry resistance and an excellent adhesion to synthetic fibers are the outstanding properties of abifor® Co-Polyester. These properties together with melting ranges between 60-165°C make CoPES as a perfect hotmelt product for the garment industry. Especially for ladies wear and blouses where moderate bonding conditions and a good adhesion to the synthetic shell fabrics are required.
Contrasting to Co-Polyamides the resistance of Co-PES to solvents like in the dry cleaning process is lower or limited. But CoPES hotmelts are ideal adhesives if special bonding properties are required.
Co-PES Hotmelt powder
A main application of Co-Polyester powders in the textile industry are paste, powder point or double-dot coating and in technical fields scatter coating.
CoPA’s good adhesion and high thermal resistance are highly appreciated by laminations with foams, nonwovens or synthetic substrates.
CoPES webs are used in the textile industry for garments. The main application for CoPES webs in the construction industry are technical laminates with open-cell nets and foams. In the automotive industry laminates with open-cell nonwoven and decor material will be bonded with CoPES webs.
CoPES films are used in different industries for homogeneous bonding which requires an even adhesive surface.
