Hot Melt Adhesives

Hot melt is defined as any polymer based glue that is applied in a molten state. HMA is composed of a polymer and additives, including a tackifying resin to create bond properties. Examples of use of these adhesives range from book-binding, packaging, tapes and labels to HVAC duct-work, auto interior trim, and furniture assembly.

Polymer production

The production of polymers is a complex process. Gentle handling of the melt in the production process is essential to the high quality of the end product. The optimum combination of gear pumps, filter systems, pelletizing systems and dryers is key.


Concentrated and precisely dosed, masterbatches contribute to the coloring and functionality of the finished polymer products. With integrated processes and systems for conveying, tempering, filtering, pelletizing or grinding and drying, MAAG Group machines achieve uncompromising results – for spherical pellets, cylindrical pellets, micropellets, or powder.


Spherical pellets, cylindrical pellets, micropellets or powder – these are the production output at the end of polymer processing. No matter whether high filler content, low melt stability, sticky material, or high MFI content – with the right pelletizing system, top results are achieved from every product.


The recycling of plastics varies widely: Recyclable waste can be processed in the MAAG Group’s pelletizing plants. High-performance filtration systems play a decisive role in this. Direct recycling to create the final product, with no intermediate pelletizing stage, is also possible. If powder is the end product, there are also suitable pulverizers in the portfolio.


What produces top extrusion results in terms of processing quality and appearance? Gear pumps that precisely convey the product flow and efficiently apply the die pressure to relieve the pressure build-up on the extruder and gently convey the processed product. And filters that reliably remove dirt from the molten plastic.


Powder of the highest quality, with good flowability and the required particle distribution at high bulk density – these are the requirements placed on the powder in rotomolding. The MAAG Group’s pulverizers, as laboratory machines or production plants, supply powder material with outstanding product surface quality for rotomolding.


All types of pumps are used in the polymer, chemical, petrochemical, pharmaceutical and food industries. The pumped media have different requirements in terms of viscosity, pressure, temperature or corrosiveness. With a sophisticated modular system, the MAAG Group can manufacture pumps that are ideally suited to a specific production process.


Micropellets are becoming increasingly important in the pharmaceutical industry. Micropellets are not powder, and not pellets, but particles of uniform size and shape to which active substances can be bound. The MAAG Group’s micropelletizer technology enables optimum direct and downstream processing.
