A-C® 5180

Technical DataSheet | Supplied by Honeywell

A-C® 5180 by Honeywell is a soft, ethylene acrylic acid copolymer grade. It boosts adhesion to hot melt adhesives. It lowers application temperature, prevents oil migration and reduces processing time. A-C® 5120 contains acrylic acid content of 20%, exhibiting low melt viscosity and molecular weight. Imparts very low color, high polarity and melt clarity. Recommended for industries such as packaging, medical and graphic arts. Typical applications utilize the high carboxylic acid functionality to promote adhesion to difficult surfaces, compatibilize polymeric mixtures and dilute higher molecular weight compatible materials like ethylene-vinyl acetate and ethylene acrylic acid for improved wetting and increased adhesive and cohesive balance.
