Personal hygiene and medical care are markets that require particular attention, as they are intrinsically linked to people's health and well-being, so all products and raw materials developed for this area must comply with specific quality, safety and comfort parameters.
This segment requires a high level of responsibility and care, so we have dedicated our experience and expertise to producing the best adhesives for applications in this sector, with a view to ensuring their integrated and efficient operation.
At Colquímica Adhesives, we have a portfolio of Hot Melt adhesives, which have been test-proven for over forty years and developed with the goal of creating the best solutions for this sector. Our adhesives developed for the hygiene industry are sold under the brands Kmelt Perfectcare and Kmelt Spraycare, and are intended for the manufacture of disposable hygiene and medical products.

For the manufacture of disposable products, we offer adhesive for assembly, core, elastic, positioning and special applications. As for the medical field, we develop products for hospital supplies and adhesive wound dressings.
The main characteristics of the adhesives developed for this industry include good cohesive strength, adhesion, light colour and very faint odour.
