Resins perform a variety of functions in hot melt adhesive formulations: they increase adhesion, decrease melt viscosity, influence crystallization rate, which in turn affects open and set time, and they influence mechanical properties. Arakawa resins can be easily handled in such technology thanks to its rheological properties.
Main applications include:
- Converting/Packaging, Flexible Packaging, Bookbinding and Graphic Art
- Nonwoven Fabrics
- Woodworking and Joinery
