- Removable gummy glue is tack free, solvent free
- 30 second open time allows for fast production
- Stable release properties sticks and peels easily without surface damage or residue
- Ideal for use on coated surfaces like paper, plastic and glossy laminates
3M™ Hot Melt Adhesive 3798 LM is a low melt adhesive that sticks quickly and removes easily, making it ideal for attaching business cards, coupons, inserts, credit cards, and samples common in brochures and mailing applications. Adhesive is tack free, solvent free and removes easily.
Ideal for attaching removable credit cards or samples to mailers
For use with 3M™ Hot Melt Applicator TC
Designed for Use on Heat Sensitive Substrates
3M™ Hot Melt Adhesive 3798 LM is specifically designed with 100% solid thermoplastic resins. This low melt application releases at 120°F/49°C, a temperature low enough to bond to paper and most plastics as well as a wide variety of other substrates, including most coated surfaces. This adhesive cools, hardens, and bonds within seconds and reaches strength without clamping, allowing for quick and repeated application where needed while saving time and energy by eliminating undue processes. Adhesive 3798 LM is the ONLY removable low temperature hot melt available for temporary attachment of credit cards, coupons, inserts and samples. 5/8" X 2" (15.9mm x 5.1cm)

With a 30 second open time there's ample opportunity for positioning and fit adjustment to support high volume productivity for packing and mailing applications. Designed specifically for optimum release, this "gummy glue" won't leave behind unwanted residue or residual tack from bonded objects. 3M™ Hot Melt Adhesive 3798 LM is designed for application using 3M™ Hot Melt Applicator TC
Understanding Hot Melt Adhesives
Hot melt adhesives
(PDF, 1.68 Mb), also known as glue sticks, are liquefied thermoplastic adhesives available in both low and high-temperature versions. Low temperature hot melt adhesives are applied at 250°F/121°C temperatures, which makes them ideal for bonding electronics, plastics, cloth and other heat sensitive materials. High temperature hot melt adhesives are applied at 380°F/193°C and produce a stronger bond than the low temperature hot melts.
Melted adhesive is extruded through a nozzle using a 3M Hot Melt Applicator by either pneumatic pressure, a mechanical trigger mechanism, or with pressure applied directly on the stick. Different nozzles can be used to apply thin, wide strips or narrow, thicker beads. Hot melt adhesive generally sets quickly, ranging from a few seconds to a few minutes, depending on the adhesive formulation.
