Hot-melt adhesives (HMA) for assembly
Imagine the possibilities of a versatile, high-performance adhesive solution for assembly applications. Vistamaxx™ performance polymers use ExxonMobil’s proprietary metallocene technology to develop a new generation of high-performance HMA formulations.
Adhesives that use Vistamaxx combine it with a mix of ingredients including tackifying resins (such as Escorez™ tackifiers), wax and antioxidant. Since Vistamaxx can account for 70-90% of the mixture, it offers many competitive benefits, including high mileage and low odor.
Excellent thermal stability under typical adhesive application conditions
Enables high softening point HMA having excellent adhesion
Outstanding range of formulation viscosity available
High mileage and low odor
Provided by high polymer loading
Excellent compatibility with polypropylene and polyethylene, plus good compatibility with tackifying resins
Versatile solution for low-energy substrates
Tunable elasticity and elongation
Low viscosity, high performance
Formulating hot melt adhesives with low-viscosity grades of Vistamaxx polymers (8380, 8880) enables significant performance benefits compared to ethylene-vinyl (EVA)- and amorphous polyalphaolefin (APAO)-based formulations.
The Vistamaxx formulations demonstrate tunable open time for a wide range of assembly applications
The Vistamaxx formulations demonstrate excellent adhesion to low-energy substrates
Vistamaxx performance polymers can cover a broad range of viscosities without sacrificing performance or formulation simplicity
