EVA, EMA and EBA polyolefins for standard Hot-Melt Adhesives
SK Evatane® EVA is the first choice for the most polyolefin-based HMA standard applications, ensuring internal strength, cohesion and toughness down to -20°C, adhesive properties up to 40-80°C, good thermal stability, clarity and compatibility with most tackifier resins. The wide range of vinyl acetate content and viscosities ensure a proper tuning of wetting, set speed and processability properties.
Lotryl® EMA and EBA are an effective alternative for very low temperature adhesion, superior thermal stability, higher adhesion on polyolefins (PP, PS) or wider compatibility with tackifier aliphatic, aromatic, aromatic modified aliphatic hydrocarbon resins and rosin esters. Polarity of Lotryl® imparts high performance on most of substrates, even coated, unlike metallocene ethylene octane copolymer (POE). These properties make Lotryl® a natural choice for deep freeze packaging, glue sticks, bookbinding, HMPSA for labelling.
Lotryl® T EBA are special grades produced by tubular technology. Their higher melting point speeds up the setting time and enables high R&B temperature of the HMA, at the same time maintaining the desired typical features of standard Lotryl®. They are especially designed for packaging and other applications where high MFI and high adhesion are requested.
EVA, EMA, EBA special offers, off-specs or slow movings from the major world producers are regularly available at Speedy Polymers with advantageous prices.
