STARTEX Resin is based on polyvinyl acetate or ethylene vinyl acetate and other specialty polymers and plasticizers. Resin adhesives have long played a “silent” but indispensable role in manufacturing. While adhesives are generally the smallest part of any application, they are without a doubt one of the most important.

STARMELT Hot Melt Adhesive
Hot melt adhesives are also known as hot glue and are a form of thermoplastic adhesives. They usually consist of one base material with various additives and are formulated to have a glass transition temperature and are available in clear, translucent, colorless, straw-colored, tan or amber. Pigmented versions are also available. The melt viscosity and the crystallization rate can be tailored for a specific application.
STARCOAT Coatings are high quality, water based textile coating compounds which enhance the physical properties of fabric. They are designed to be used as a back coating to fabrics, rendering them more functional. Typically, STARCOAT is used on nylon fabrics in various weights (200 – 1,000 Denier) for luggage, backpacks and duffle bags. These coatings primarily prevent the yarns from unravelling, add weight to the fabric, increase tensile and tear strength as well as hydrostatic pressure resistance.
