BOSTIK: Elastic Attachment Adhesive
This company has launched a high-performance olefin elastic attachment adhesive. Brilliance™ is a polyolefin that reportedly can be used in high-stress hot-melt adhesive applications such as holding elastic strands in place in diapers and adult incontinence articles. In the past, adhesives based on polyolefin chemistry were reportedly limited to low-stress applications due to performance and processing drawbacks.
“Brilliance is a game-changing advance in elastic attachment adhesive technology that eliminates the former trade-offs between product performance and operational efficiencies that limited traditional olefin technology in the disposable hygiene industry,” said Jeffrey Merkt, senior vice president of Global Nonwovens.
