BATES® HTR-1 provides temporary, effective protection from unwanted build-up of highly active compounds such as adhesives, resins, and fiberglass. It forms a thin protective coating that allows for easy scraping and removal in accumulation areas. BATES HTR-1 can be used to repel glue in hot gluing applications up to 300°F/148.9°C.

Surface Preparation

  • Surfaces must be clean and free of contamination. BATES® HTR-1 is not a glue remover and will only work when applied to clean equipment.
  • Before initial application, clean equipment to remove any oily residue that would prevent HTR-1 from adhering to the surface.
  • Any glue equipment surface, or equipment exposed to glue drippings, can be protected by HTR-1.


  • High Frequency Gluers and Hot Presses
    • Apply HTR-1 using a cloth, brush, sponge or spray bottle. Spread HTR-1 to create a thin uniform film on the surface. Wipe or brush out any puddles.
    • HTR-1 can be applied to hot surfaces. Apply HTR-1 below 200°F/93.3°C for best film formation.
    • Allow HTR-1 to dry completely before operation begins; overnight is best.
    • HTR-1 can be used in hot gluing applications up to 300°F/148.9°C. For applications above 300°F/148.9°C, use HTR-4.
  • Vacuum/Membrane Presses
    • Coat the tray with an even film of HTR-1 using a foam brush or roller. Wipe or brush out any puddles.
    • Allow HTR-1 to dry completely before operation begins; overnight is best.

Removal and Reapplication

  • Accumulated compounds can be easily scraped off equipment using a straight-edged scraping tool.
  • In high volume operations, HTR-1 should be reapplied once per day or at the end of each shift.
  • In low volume operations, HTR-1 should be reapplied once per week.
  • Cleaning solvents are not needed for the removal of accumulated glue if proper application and removal procedures are followed.

Cleanup & Storage

  • Application equipment can be cleaned using hot soapy water.
  • Securely cover container of HTR-1 to prevent evaporation and deterioration. Stirring may be necessary after long periods of storage.
  • Store HTR-1 in a climate controlled area to prevent freezing. It should be stored at temperatures between 50°F/10°C and 90°F/32°C. If HTR-1 freezes, store at room temperature until thawed and stir contents thoroughly before using. DO NOT heat the container of BATES.
