Bayer Launches Raw Materials for High-Grade Adhesives

SpecialChem / Jul 24, 2002

The Rubber Business Group of Bayer Corp. in Akron, Ohio, has introduced Levamelt, a new product that is on its way to defining a new class of raw materials for high-grade adhesives. Levamelt is the name for a series of ethylene-vinyl acetate copolymers that can outperform alternatives in a range of applications, either as hot melt or solventborne adhesives. Levamelt is expected to become the material of choice and common 'bond' for use in such diverse applications as baby diapers, bookbinding, woodwork, running shoes, and protective films for automobile manufacturing and other valuable surfaces, e.g., liquid-crystal display (LCD) screens. According to Ron Norris, Bayer Rubber's director, Marketing, for NBR, EPR and CR, Levamelt paves the way for producing a variety of tailor-made films for applications in automobile assembly, woodworking and joinery, bookbinding and graphics industries, packaging, disposable products, flexible laminates, footwear, tapes and labels, and product assembly and sealants.
