Customized solutions for Adhesive and Sealant applications

Evonik´s Adhesive Resins Product Line is offering a broad range of products and solutions for the adhesives & sealants industry. They provide the DYNACOLL® Series, polyester-polyols, copolyesters and polyacrylates for reactive and thermoplastic hot melts. With DYNACOLL® Terra, the company has recently expanded its DYNACOLL® product range to include polyester made from renewable raw materials. Evonik has introduced six development products with a broad spectrum of properties. The individual products contain between >30 and 100 percent monomers derived from renewable resources. These polyesters can be variously combined in adhesive formulations. Good adhesion properties have already been achieved on a variety of substrates, particularly wood and plastics. By developing DYNACOLL® Terra product range, Evonik has underscored responsibility and contributes to the trend in the chemicals industry to a greener future.

Furthermore, Evonik’s product portfolio at China Adhesives contains liquid polybutadienes markted under the brand POLYVEST®, VESTOPLAST®, amorphous poly-alpha-olefines, VESTOWAX® synthetic waxes produced by the Fischer-Tropsch process and DEGALAN®, methacrylat binders for heat sealing applications. The Adhesive Resins Product Line will present its new market approach at the China Adhesives. Based on the claim “Designed Polymers for Adhesives & Sealants” Evonik will introduce its “flying the flag”-campaign for the first time in Asia.

High Performance Silanes in Various Applications – Dynasylan® Silanes

MS- and SPUR-systems as well as other hybrid polymer based products are getting more and more popular in China. Evonik’s Dynasylan® product is a high performance additive supporting those systems, e.g. as endcapper. In addition Dynasylan acts as an adhesion promoter, crosslinker and water scavenger, some Dynasylan® products can achieve an excellent performance complying with MS-polymer and SPUR-systems. It offers unique property improvements, such as less water uptake and higher elongation. It also can provide adhesion to difficult substrates.

Excellent Ingredients for Adhesive– AEROSIL® Fumed Silica and SIPERNAT® Precipitated Silica

AEROSIL® fumed silica and SIPERNAT® precipitated silica are used as an active reinforcing filler to improve the mechanical properties of adhesives & sealants, with the key functions of rheology control, thixotropy, reinforcement, flow improvement and stabilization. Evonik’s silica products have been widely used in traditional industries and industrial adhesive products for many years. By developing innovative products to the market, we are now providing tailor-made solutions to broader application areas, including adhesives and sealants for solar cells, photovoltaics and wind turbines.
