TECHNIPOL® PA 162 is a thermoplastic adhesive co-polyamide based extruded into rod shape and used by automatic lasting machines in the footwear industry.
This polyamide rod cement has been specifically designed to be also used on the new toe lasting machines, equipped with tracers. Thanks to its quick setting time, its good flexibility, its excellent wettability and its high adhesion to leather and to both synthetic and regenerated materials, TECHNIPOL® PA 162 is the ideal adhesive for the shoe manufacturing. Due to the wide variety of materials used in the today’s footwear construction, it is recommended to run some preliminary trials in order to homologate the TECHNIPOL® PA 162.
Finally, TECHNIPOL® PA 162 contains more than 80% of raw materials coming from renewable resources (no food grade).
