Polymer for Hot Melt Adhesives

May 30, 2002
EASTMAN CHEMICAL CO.

This company introduces Eastman AQ 2350 polymer for use in formulating hot melt adhesives. An odorless sulfopolyester, AQ 2350 is readily dispersible in water but is nondispersible in ionic solutions such as body fluids. These, along with other unique characteristics, are provided without sacrificing adhesive application or performance profiles. Carrying both MITI and FDA indirect food-contact approvals, the product is targeted for use in formulating adhesives for nonwovens, paper converting and pressure sensitive applications. Circle No. 103
