The T782 series is an EVA adhesive solution specifically designed for high-speed edge-banding process and irregular boards applications. Featuring excellent adhesion strength and extraordinary sealing and appearance performance, the solution fills in the deficiencies of conventional products used at high-speed production lines.
The T782 series presents robust processability, outstanding water-proof performance, and competitive cost-in-use value.

The adhesive solution features higher green strength and cohesion, along with improved aesthetics on various boards.
