EASTMAN CHEMICAL CO.: Hot-Melt Adhesives Polymer
This company now offers Aerafin™, a polymer created for use in hygiene construction hot-melt adhesives. It reportedly enables a broad processing window for hot-melt formulations, including the ability to spray at temperatures as low at 130°C and offers compatibility with a range of hydrocarbon tackifiers.
“The launch of Aerafin comes as a result of a dedicated innovation effort,” said JP Kuijpers, adhesives business director. “Our formulator customers and product brand owners expressed the desire for improved performance of the olefin polymers in hot-melt adhesives, and our technology team delivered. Aerafin demonstrates the excellent peel strength brand owners need and can have lower tackifier loading requirements, enabling formulation flexibility.”
