Hot-melt adhesives: How polymer selection impacts performance

This is a Past Webinar

Are you formulating hot-melt adhesives for general assembly? Do you struggle to select the right polymer to meet performance requirements?

Polymer selection is critical to hot-melt adhesive performance. The polymer controls the strength and flexibility of the adhesive as well as the heat resistance, shear, and impact resistance. It can also contribute to VOC emissions impacting indoor air quality.

Join the experts at Eastman to learn how Aerafin™ 35 amorphous polyolefin compares to other polymers typically used in hot-melt adhesive formulations.

See test results comparing thermal stability, color stability, sprayability, adhesion performance, open time, odor, VOC, FOG, and fogging. Model formulations for targeted applications and their improved performance will also be presented.

See how you can benefit from Aerafin™ 35’s excellent thermal stability, low odor, color stability in use, and minimal charring in hot-melt adhesives for mattress, filter, woodworking, automotive interior, and industrial glass applications.
