There is much demand for fugitive glue in the direct mailing and marketing industries. This is due to the diverse uses of this pressure sensitive hot melt. As the term suggests, the application provides a temporary, yet secure hold for a wide variety of substrates. It is more commonly known as credit card glue, as this is one of its most popular uses.
Because of its texture and elasticity, you may hear it referred to as gummy, snot, or booger glue. Credit card glue is generally easy to use- forming a temporary bond while attached, and can be easily peeled off. It is also a low-tack adhesive which loses its stickiness once removed.
Catering to Your Direct Mailing Needs
Banks, printers and publishers usually require bonding solutions that will ensure the safety and temporary application of their products, from assembly to customer. Low-tack pressure-sensitive hot melt is the best option for forming temporary but sturdy bonds on a variety of substrates including plastic, paper, and other smooth or laminated, non-porous surfaces.
The durability of this application is quite commendable, as the glue will remain secure for years before being peeled off. Furthermore, there is no residue after removal, and both of the separated substrates remain intact.
Here are Some of the Main Uses in Direct Mailing
- Mailed credit cards
- Magazine sample inserts (e.g fragrance samples or coupons)
- Letter inserts
- Greeting Card Inserts
