Overview

Polyalphaolefin (APAO)

Amorphous polyalphaolefins are co- and terpolymers that are polymerized from ethylene, propylene and 1-butene. In combination with synthetic resins, this particular polyolefin provides excellent adhesion. In addition, the combination with waxes reduces the melt viscosity and increases the vapor-blocking effect. This variability is particularly important in the context that nowadays, adhesives have to be able to do more than permanently bond two components to each other.

Industries

The polyalphaolefins sold by TER Chemicals are used for thermoplastic hot melt adhesives in diapers, in the wood and furniture industry, as well as in the paper and packaging industry. Other applications include asphalt, pavement markings, colored casting materials, drainage channels, and bitumen sealing sheets
