White goods, or major home appliances, are complex assemblies designed and manufactured to meet demanding expectations of customers around the globe. Refrigerators, washing machines, dryers, air conditioners and dishwashers all must perform continuously at high levels for years – usually exposed to demanding conditions such as heat, cold, humidity, pressure, vibration and chemical exposure. Each large appliance has dozens of smaller subassemblies with specific functions including electronic panels, motors, seals, panels and housings, and more. Our KRYLEX® line of home appliance adhesives provide excellent adhesion to most substrates and withstand most of the strenuous conditions and forces that each of these subassemblies is exposed to. We currently provide home appliance adhesives for the following applications:
