Duluth, GA - Nordson Corporation’s SureFoam™ hot melt adhesive foaming system mixes hot melt adhesive material with inert gas to create a homogenous mixture. As the system dispenses material, gas expands to create a closed-cell foam, which can be applied in swirl or bead patterns using Nordson dispensing handguns. The system is ideal for a wide variety of woodworking applications, including cabinet assembly.

“The SureFoam system can help manufacturers dramatically reduce their overall adhesive consumption, while enhancing material properties and consistency and greater overall productivity,” said George Pais, senior product line manager, Nordson.

Hot melt materials are used to reinforce and stabilize cabinet assemblies such as drawer bottoms, cabinet backs and rail/style attachment. Foaming adhesives results in volumetric increases for better gap filling as well as increased penetration to improve bond strength.

The SureFoam system provides users with a number of advantages, including:

* Manual Density Control – Single adjustment density control allows for simple setup of the foam process and easy density reduction.
* Simple Interface – The system uses an input signal from the applicator to trigger the mixing process while the melter provides precise, controlled heating and functional interlock.
* User Friendly Design – Easy to maintain, the system includes minimal service items and few moving parts.
