Hot Melt Spray Applications

Spray grade hot melt adhesives are perfect for temperature-sensitive materials, such as plastic foams and films. Spraying allows for a wider area of adhesion, for improved bond strength on weaker substrates when compared with bead dispensing. These systems are solvent-free and non-toxic, so there are none of the environmental problems often associated with spray guns. We proudly distribute the market leader Power Adhesives for these products!

Price Increase for Labels

Like death and taxes, label price increases are inevitable! We have proudly held our prices for the last 6 years, but unfortunately the time has come. All custom labels quotes will be updated upon order placement. Any change to “stock” labels will also be quoted and/or updated on our website. Please note that Priddy Sales is continually working to minimize these increases through efficiency and volume.

Below are some examples to further explain the necessary change:

  • Boise is converting one of their machines currently making pressure-sensitive liner paper over to make liner board products. They provide 30% of the liners used in North America so this change will have a significant impact on availability and cost.
  • Appvion Paper, which is a major supplier of face stock material, filed for bankruptcy protection on October 2nd.
  • A major supplier of a direct thermal top coating component was shuttered by the Chinese government for pollution issues and is estimated to be idle for 4 to 5 months. The plant produces about 35% of the component used by the world in DT face sheets.
  • Raw material increases from suppliers like Mactac, UPM Raflatac, Acucote, Spinnaker Coating, Stratatac, and Avery-Dennison.

Priddy Sales Company looks forward to helping you with your future labeling projects and will continue to provide you the best value for your money in supplies and service.
