A strong bond for wood

Our AERAFINTM amorphous polyolefins are designed to improve polyurethane-based hot melts for wood working.  They significantly improve green strength and are compatible with polyols, with minimal impact on softening point and viscosity.

There are two branches to the AERAFINTM family. Firstly, APO in HMPUR adhesives improve the green strength of PUR and offer tunable open and set times by using different dosages. They also adhere better to PVC, making them suitable for even broader applications, and can help lower costs by delivering green strength and set times at lower dosages.

Secondly, our APO-based adhesives strike a good balance between open and set times, have excellent thermal stability, good water resistance and low odour. They are easy to apply and adhere well to LSE substrates, even in low temperatures.

Tacolyn™ 5003 Resin DispersionTackifier DispersionTacolyn™ 5003 resin dispersion is an aqueous, 45% solids, solvent-free, anionic hydrocarbon resin dispersion. It is recommended as a single tackifier for anionic polychloroprene latex polymers used in contact adhesive applications. When used as a modifier for contact adhesives, Tacolyn™ 5003 imparts outstanding high temperature performance, excellent contactability and good moisture resistance without the use of a second reinforcing tackifier.
