FOLCO REACT: The Star of the Show

Our reactive hotmelt adhesive, FOLCO REACT, takes the spotlight as a versatile and robust solution. Formulated to withstand a wide range of stress factors, FOLCO REACT offers supreme moisture resistance and heat resistance. This characteristic is especially valuable in demanding environments like surgical settings, where textiles require frequent sterilization.

Unparalleled Comfort for Durable Fabrics

Customers expect their clothing for outdoor, professional or protective to be comfortable, breathable and water repellent as well. FOLCO REACT adhesives deliver all of that while remaining incredibly flexible for the entire lifetime of the product.
Follmann’s reactive adhesives deliver reliable bonding for medical textiles, including surgical drapes, gowns, and wound dressings, maintaining their integrity even after repeated sterilization processes.

Efficient and Easy Bonding with Pressure Sensitive Adhesives (PSA)

Follmann’s Pressure Sensitive Adhesives (PSA) offer an efficient and user-friendly solution for technical textiles. These adhesives provide strong adhesion properties, allowing for quick and secure attachment of textile materials without the need for additional curing or heating processes. With PSA, technical textile manufacturers can streamline their production processes, ensuring reliable bonding with ease.
