Formulating Reactive Hot Melt Adhesives

This is a Past Course

Recorded on Nov 22, 2016

Formulate easily reactive hot melts to meet high performance applications requirements. Know about state-of-the-art processing techniques specific to reactive hot melts to achieve desired properties.

Edward will review the choice of ingredients & their impact on final performance / crosslinking speed and attention points (packaging, shelf & pot life...) specific to 1K reactive system vs. traditional hot melts.

Why should you view this course?

There is an increasing interest from the adhesive & sealant industry to develop reactive hot melts for high performance applications (transport, building & construction, packaging, electrical & electronics...). Understanding how to combine the advantages of hot melts (fast set, 1K) with the advantages of thermoset technology (creep, heat resistance) is the key! Join this course and:

  • Get a fresh eye on current & developing reactive hot melt technologies to formulate for high performance applications
  • Understand how to choose the right ingredients by knowing their impact on final performance, crosslinking speed/ crosslinking rate
  • Know about the key attention points specific to packaging & increasing shelf life & pot life for reactive hot melts compared to standard hot melts

Who should view this course?

Hot Melt Adhesives & Sealants formulators who wants to formulate for high performance markets include transportation, building and construction, packaging, and electrical and electronic.
