New rules for the use of MDI-containing adhesives per 24-8-2023
As we act as responsible distributor, Coraltek obtained certification for using MDI-containing adhesives (like PUR hotmelts). This to be able to run trials but also to understand what our customers
have to do. More info on: https://www.feica.eu/PUinfo
Coraltek offering stock in Germany
We started working with Sintrex, our partner for warehousing, transport and custom clearance services. Our products in stock and available to our customers from the Dutch/German boarder.
Coralbond PU 420
We are proudly presenting our own range of PU adhesives
In cooperation with a texile laminator, Coraltek developed its own PU moist-curing sprayable adhesive for lamination of foam, film, non-woven and textile. The adhesive properties:
- Very fine spray
- UV stable
- Very high washability
- Excellent bond to difficult substrates (PVC, mesh, etc.)

Coraltek consulting the lamination project in Sapphire Finishing Mills Ltd
Creating value together. Creating high performance textiles
Over the last months, we developed and manufactured laminated fabrics for demanding “high end” markets. Products that meet the highest standards:
- High breathability
- Excellent waterproofness
- Excellent water repellency
- Soft hand feeling
- Light weight
A great cooperation between Sapphire Finishing Mills and Coraltek
Lamination project supported by Coraltek
Coraltek consulted a textile lamination project for a large workwear producer, that invested in a complete production plant. The goal was to add wind- and waterproof garments
to their productline. We worked in close cooperation with the client, the machine manufacturer, the adhesive producer and the breathable membrane supplier. In this partnership, we guided the manufacturing, trained the staff and developed
a vast product portfolio. Interested in consultancy for a turn key project like this? Just
contact us for more information
Applying the adhesive:
- dot pattern
- applied on the membrane
- total tension control
Winding the laminate:
A batcher is prepared on an A-frame, then the freshly produced laminates has to “cure” and goes for a third layer.
Testing of the laminate:
The produced laminated undergoes a number of tests, before and after intense washing:
- Peel strength
- Hydrostatic waterhead
- Water repellency
- Flex testing
- etc., etc.
Schmits Chemical Solutions and Coraltek, developed a special hotmelt roller cleaner.
We offer a strong cleaner, that removes cured hotmelt parts from (engraved) rollers, even when they are carbonized and burned-in. The formulation works in conjunction
with higher temperatures and is based on “mild chemistry”. It does not contain hazardous components, neither is it listed on Restricted Substance List (MRSL), the SVHC candidate list
of REACH and the MRSL of ZDHC
Coraltek becomes Coraltek B.V.
Thanks to you, our business is growing and so we need to change the legal status of our company into a “B.V.” which is a “private limited company”. Everything remains the same except some account details. You can find them under Contact us
Heavy duty flooring
Special lamination of heavy duty flooring using Coralbond PU
For our customer, we laminated steel plate to heavy duty multiplex using Coralbond PU and added a UV indicator to visualize the adhesive during the process. The opened fresh laminate shows a perfect transfer of the adhesive. The end-product withstands outdoors usage (all weather), heavy impact (mechanical & chemical) and carries heavy weight (mechanical stability).
Coraltek introduces Coralbond ASL antislip hotmelt
Coraltek proudly introduces Coralbond ASL, a hotmelt based antislip coating for industrial and home applications. Features:
- Immediately tack-free after application
- Rubbery but not sticky
- Odour free
producing parquet flooring
Coraltek and its partner developed a new PUR hotmelt adhesive for producing laminated parquet flooring.
– Low temperature application (130-140ºC)
– Very high initial bond
– Very fast building of strength
– Very clean application
Glueing the multiplex
Delamination after 45 min
Clear glue lines
Clean nozzle application
coraltek supporting ppe lamination
Coraltek supports a renowned lamination company in the Indian Subcontinent with the right adhesives manufacturing PPE suits and gowns for medical care. These laminates are made of PP spunbond non-woven and PP barrier films. To reduce environmental impact, these suits and gowns can be used multiple times in a safe and sustainable way.
New project with Maan Engineering for flat lamination
For a very demanding requirement, where the customer uses materials with tension, Coraltek is supporting the project with a new reactive hotmelt development that provides very high initial bonding power.
MLE (micro emission) PUR hotmelt
Neoflex developed a range of very low emission reactive PU hotmelts. These adhesives come without the cancer warning sign because the MDI content is below 0,1%.
Performance is given and now also safety at your work spot
Bio-based flame retardant
Schmits Chemical Solutions developed a bio-based (ASTM D6866 50-85%) flame retardant agent. Producers of advanced textiles very often are asked for biodegradability
and bio-based finishes / treatments on their textiles. We offer you a suitable product
