Recently, generalizing the solution of the adhesiveless random rough contact proposed by Xu, Jackson, and Marghitu (XJM model), the first author has obtained a model for adhesive contact near full contact, under the Johnson, Kendall, and Roberts (JKR) assumptions, which leads to quite strong effect of the fractal dimension. We extend here the results with closed-form equations, including both loading and unloading which were not previously discussed, showing that the conclusions are confirmed. A large effect of hysteresis is found, as was expected. The solution is therefore competitive with Persson's JKR solution, at least in the range of nearly full contact, with an enormous advantage in terms of simplicity. Two examples of real surfaces are discussed.
