Adhesives containing olefin polymers for safe and efficient functionality at low application temperatures

As well as being instrumental in the plastics industry, olefin polymers have quickly risen to prominence in the world of adhesives. Realizing their potential for cost-effective processability and high performance, Bostik R&D teams maximize the benefits available from this technology.

Polyolefin represents a major area of innovation at Bostik. Our R&D teams began engineering polyolefin formulations for adhesive applications in the early 2000s, and these technologies continue to benefit many industrial markets.

From web and film adhesives to sprayable hot melts, olefin polymers are present in many of our most advanced adhesive solutions.

While polyamide chemistries are often used in adhesive applications where resistance to extreme temperatures, solvents or other chemicals is essential, polyolefins offer a safer, lower maintenance and more economic solution for your production line.

Despite being well-suited to low risk manufacturing processes, Bostik polyolefin adhesives are notable for their ability to bond to difficult or even chemically inert substrates. Where meticulous pre-treatment is the norm with other solutions, our olefin polymer products make non-porous and olefinic material bonds simple and stress-free.
