Case Study

The Challenge

A prominent mattress manufacturer reached out to Maxilam for assistance in their mattress production. In doing so they wanted to transform the cost-efficiency of their foam and mattress operation along with desiring to improve their environmental footprint and reduce wastage.

Understanding the Issue

With their current situation the manufacturer was experiencing adhesion inconsistency, warranty recalls, and an extensive amount of rework needed as a consequence of poor adhesion across their foams. After the client’s substrates were analysed in depth, it was clear the foams contained a high silicone content and texture that resisted the adhesive and prevented it from properly penetrating the substrate. Significant resource and cost were required to repair and rectify the delamination and product recalls.

The Solution

After partnering with Maxilam, the manufacturer was able to transition to a high-performance APAO-based (Amorphous Polyolefin) hotmelt adhesive. The Sabre Melt 327K was specifically formulated with strong adhesion properties which provide unique substrate penetration on the difficult foams used. The adhesive was also optimized for faster production processes with easy melting and high yield to suit the manufacturers parameters.

The Results

Following the successful laboratory and line trials, the client was able to achieve a significant improvement of adhesion to the foam substrates by over 30%. This then eliminated the need for further production processes which incurred additional costs and reduced product recalls.
