Hot Melt Adhesives


Hot Melt Adhesives are thermoplastic materials that offer several benefits including superior adhesion properties to a variety of substrates. There are many applications which use hot melt adhesives including packaging, bookbinding, and nonwovens.

Hydrogenated hydrocarbon resins are the preferred resin choice for hot melt applications. Resinall produces a variety of these resins including fully and partially hydrogenated versions. These resins have very low color, low odor, and excellent thermal stability. They tackify a variety of elastomers including metallocene, ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA), styrenic block copolymers (SIS, SBS, and SEBS), and amorphous polyalpha olefins. This balance of properties makes these resins ideally suited for use in hot melt adhesives for packaging and non-woven assembly.
