A-C® 573P

Technical DataSheet | Supplied by Honeywell

A-C® 573P by Honeywell is an ethylene maleic anhydride copolymer grade for use in pressure-sensitive hot melt and metallocene ethylene octene (MEO) copolymers adhesives. Acts as adhesion promoters even in cold temperature. It is compatible with ethylene vinyl acetate, exhibiting excellent thermal and color stability due to their low levels of ungrafted oligomeric maleic anhydride. A-C® 573P is recommended for hygiene, bookbinding, packaging, wood-working, constructions, tapes and labels. Functionalization of a non-polar polyethylene with 0.5% maleic anhydride provides the low molecular weight copolymer with non-polar and polar characteristics, producing adhesion and tack to traditional polar surfaces such as steel, aluminum or glass and also to difficult surfaces such as vinyl and polypropylene.
