BATES® HTR-4 is a water-based resin emulsion that dries to a semi-firm, heat-resistant coating that can be used to repel glue in hot gluing applications up to 350°F/176.7°C. It provides temporary, effective protection from unwanted build-up of highly active compounds such as adhesives, resins, and fiberglass.

Surface Preparation

  • Surfaces must be clean and free of contamination. BATES® HTR-4 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-4 from adhering to the surface.
  • Any glue equipment surface, or equipment exposed to glue drippings, can be protected by HTR-4.


  • High Frequency Gluers and Hot Presses
    • Apply HTR-4 using a cloth, brush, sponge or spray bottle. Spread HTR-4 to create a thin uniform film on the surface. Wipe or brush out any puddles.
    • HTR-4 can be applied to hot surfaces. Apply below 200°F/93.3°C for best film formation.
    • Allow HTR-4 to dry completely before operation begins; overnight is best.
    • HTR-4 can be used in hot gluing applications up to 350°F/176.7°C

Removal and Reapplication

  • Accumulated compounds can be easily scraped off equipment using a straight-edged scraping tool.
  • In high volume operations, HTR-4 should be reapplied once per day or at the end of each shift.
  • In low volume operations, HTR-4 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-4 to prevent evaporation and deterioration. Stirring may be necessary after long periods of storage.
  • Store HTR-4 in a climate controlled area to prevent freezing. It should be stored at temperatures between 50°F/10°C and 90°F/32.2°C. If HTR-4 freezes, store at room temperature until thawed and stir contents thoroughly before using. DO NOT heat the container of BATES.
