New polymers for hygiene and assembly hot melt adhesives
Vistamaxx 8380 and 8780 are designed for hygiene applications that require low odour, minimal colour adhesives.

IRVING, US: ExxonMobil Chemical Company has introduced new grades of low viscosity Vistamaxx performance polymers for hygiene and assembly hot melt adhesive applications. Vistamaxx 8380 and 8780 are designed for hygiene applications that require low odour, minimal colour adhesives. They enable thermally stable formulations with polymer loadings of 45-65 percent. Formulators have the flexibility to create hot melt adhesives that meet open and set time needs while also delivering higher mileage compared to adhesives based on SBC (styrene block copolymer) and metallocene polyethylene (MCNPE).

Vistamaxx 8380 is also well-suited for hot melt adhesives used in assembly applications, such as woodbanding, lamination and automotive. It allows thermally stable formulations with improved adhesion and heat resistance compared to APAO- and EVA-based formulations, while providing low odor and minimal color. Vistamaxx 8880 is well suited for packaging applications including case and carton sealing. It enables formulations with polymer loadings as high as 90 percent, about double that of formulations using ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) or MCN-PE.
