Additives for hotmelt adhesives

Hotmelt adhesives are multicomponent systems. By skillful formulation of various raw materials and additives can be achieved specific properties, which meet individual application requirements. These additives can be, for example, tackifying resins (tackifiers), light stabilizers or stabilizers as well. 

Stabilizers for hotmelt adhesives

Antioxidants can suppress / slow the thermo-oxidative degradation of the polymers in hotmelt adhesives. This keeps look as well as chemical and receive physical properties.

  • Primary and secondary antioxidants for hotmelt adhesives

Light stabilizers and UV absorbers for hotmelt adhesives

Light stabilizing additives filter harmful UV light and act as free radical scavengers and increase the work life of your adhesives. 

Benefits and Features

  • Protection against damage such as discoloration
  • Filtering of harmful UV light
  • Neutralization of free radicals
  • Preservation of surface properties (tack)
  • Light stabilizers for hotmelt adhesives

Rosin resin ester for hotmelt adhesives

Resin esters are used as tackifiers.

Benefits and Features

  • Increased stickiness
  • Rosin resin ester for hotmelt adhesives
