CLARIANT: Hot-Melt Materials
This company has reportedly created a toolbox for formulators to design hot melts with superior performance for any need, using sustainable processing. The products feature the company’s Licocene® metallocene-based systems and formulating guidelines. The Licocene products reportedly offer low molecular weight yet high mechanical strength. For hot-melt adhesives, they can provide a balance between adhesion and cohesion. The optimized Licocene viscosity profile reportedly achieves desired properties even at low processing temperatures. Excellent thermal stability means less charring and no gelling, and enables higher productivity due to reduced cleaning downtime and increased mileage due to its low density.
