Applications

The low viscosity, end excellent wetting behavior of Licocene PP 2502 granules makes it a perfect fit as a backbone polymer for hot melt adhesives. Unlike other polymers, Licocene PP 2502 granules shows superior adhesion properties combined with insignificant residual tack and improved 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 2502 granules guarantees high loadings and an outstanding dispersion of the additives being used. Processing aid for polyolefins.

PEOPLE
Safe use, transparency and information
• Negligible odor and reduced VOC during production and with the final product.
Addressing megatrends and social needs
• Less energy and hot melt consumption during production.
• No additional compounding step at adhesives manufacturers.
• Addressing the trend to smaller nozzles in the production and healthier mattresses.

PLANET
Raw materials and sustainable sourcing
• Up to 40% reduced hot melt consumption in customers´ production compared to market standard due to excellent performance and consistent quality.
Resource efficiency and environmental protection
• When using EVA based hot melts, the mattress core is composed of 3 different components.
• With Licocene, recycling is much more efficient, because mattress core consists of steel and PP only.

PERFORMANCE
Integrated sustainable business
• Tailor made hot melt solution based on customer needs.
• Improved quality combined with less emission allowing them to produce healthier and more sustainable mattresses.
Performance advantages
• No smell in production, nor with the final product.
• Significantly reduced coating weights and improved bonding strength.
• Improved heat resistance and cold temperature flexibility. No color.
