The hot melt adhesives are solvent-free and thermoplastic compounds and are also called as hot glue. The name itself describes the use of the adhesives, Hot Melt adhesives (HMA) are heated in the temperature range of 120°C to 180°C to melt and used on the surface, which later harden on cooling to give a strong adhesion. The temperature range is depend upon the surface on which adhesives to be applied.
