It may seem counter intuitive that moisture control in water-based adhesives requires perhaps more accuracy and precision than in solvent-based adhesives. However, water-based adhesives moisture plays a role not only in adhesive and final product quality, but in the production process, as well.

Improve Production Efficiency by Controlling Water-Based Adhesive Moisture

Manufacturers of water-based adhesives and of products utilizing water-based adhesive technology during production can eliminate time-consuming and costly inefficiencies during production by controlling moisture. Controlling water-based adhesives moisture will:

  • Increase Overall Manufacturing Productivity
  • Improve Adhesive and/or Final Product Quality
  • Minimize Waste and Scrap
  • Lower Energy Consumption
  • Reduce Environmental Hazards
  • Optimize Production Processes
  • Ultimately, Save Money

Control Water-Based Adhesive Moisture by Measuring It

If you can measure moisture at any point, or better yet, throughout the adhesive-manufacturing process, your production operators have the opportunity to control moisture. By measuring adhesive moisture continuously, your production operators have the opportunity to control final adhesive quality in addition to improving production efficiency as described above. However, of the technologies and devices available on the market today, which should you choose to measure water-based adhesive moisture?

Choose MoistTech’s IR-3000

For more than 40 years, MoistTech’s engineers and manufacturing specialists have worked to perfect its moisture-measurement technology.
