Our solutions for hot melt adhesives -
improving the bond
between us and nature
Solve your own and the world’s bonding challenges with our high-performing polymers and waxes
Thanks to their excellent performance, eco-profiles and recyclability, hot melt adhesives experience exceptional growth and have taken center stage in many bonding applications.
Our Licocene® metallocene polyolefins put a new spotlight on what can be done with these superior polymer adhesives. With their unmatched versatility and disruptive abilities, our precision-tailored polyethylene and polypropylene offerings will change the way you look at the performance, production benefits and sustainability of hot melt solutions.
Creating a new bond between planet and performance in adhesive manufacturing
The cutting-edge metallocene technology behind our Licocene® range allows us to custom-design our polyolefins with pinpoint accuracy and precisely fit them to the performance needs of our customers’ adhesive production. Our polymers and waxes combine low molecular weight with high mechanical strength, provide just the right balance of adhesion and cohesion, protect your productivity with high heat resistance — and have consumer friendly odor and VOC profiles.
Where conscious consumers are concerned, our products also help to create new bonds by offering 100% renewable-based options that push the sustainability of our 100% polymer-based solutions to new limits. Significantly reducing the carbon footprint of adhesives, they aid our customers in fixing their own and the world’s challenges with the enhanced benefits of renewable-based hot melts.
