The range, which includes specifically Copolyesters and Copolyamides, will also meet help provide more sustainable materials in the manufacturing of filters, electronics, footwear.
Bio-based Specialty Hot Melt Adhesives, including Copolyesters and Copolyamides, are derived from renewable resources, such as oil producing plants.
The new Bio-based Specialty Hot Melt Adhesives are said to offer numerous benefits for industrial manufacturers. They exhibit bonding strength, heat resistance, and reliable adhesion properties, with various viscosities, making them suitable for a wide range of applications.
The offering is available as pellets, webs and firms and can adapt to existing and future equipment methods.
According to Bostik, they bring up to 90% and more, of bio-based content. The company is leveraging Arkema’s experience in bio-based materials and particularly a know-how in the chemistry of the castor plant, a non-edible plant, from which a range of long-chain biosourced polyamides are made.
Guillaume Desurmont, Bostik vice president, durable goods business unit, (pictured) said: “The biobased specialty hot melt are a powerful set of technical adhesives to support our customers innovation and differentiation. This portfolio offers a unique and wide range of opportunity when it comes to process efficiency and performances. By offering these alternatives, we aim to make a positive impact on the environment and create a more sustainable future for the industry."
