This course presents formulation strategies, based on application and performance requirements for a variety of hot melt adhesive markets by industry experts. Learn how plasticizers, tackifiers and waxes are used to enhance base polymers for optimized processing and properties and how to evaluate thermo-mechanical and mechanical behavior of hot melts and resulting bonded assemblies.
Ideal for…anyone involved with selecting, formulating and/or implementing hot melt adhesive technology for specific applications. Sales, product managers and marketing professionals would also benefit by increasing technical depth of additive options available for tailored solutions to product requirements.
Participants are invited to attend the ASC EXPO at no additional charge to network with the industry and learn about the latest innovations in the industry.
Preliminary Topics Include:
- Hot Melts Markets
- Polymer Types
