Applications

The low viscosity, end excellent wetting behavior of Licocene PP 3602 granules makes it a perfect fit as a backbone polymer for hot melt adhesives. Unlike other polymers, Licocene PP 3602 granules shows superior adhesion properties combined with insignificant residual tack and maximum cohesion.

It is also a ready to use hot melt polymer for textile and non-woven applications where a soft hand is crucial. 

Used as a sole carrier for Masterbatches, Licocene PP 3602 granules guarantees high loadings and an outstanding dispersion of the pigments, additives or fillers being used.

Processing aid for polyolefins.
