In designing the new facility, Bostik employed a cross-regional approach where manufacturing and engineering expertise from other HMPSA
sites was heavily used in the planning phases.
Bostik, a subsidiary of Arkema (Paris:AKE), announced on Wednesday the extension of its production capacities with a new hot melt pressure sensitive adhesives (HMPSA) plant in Monterrey, Mexico.
This new plant significantly increases HMPSA production capacity in Monterrey and will primarily serve the needs of customers in the disposable hygiene sector.
In addition, SG was applied over the HMPSA for 2 Alpha Scents trap treatments.
In Experiment 1, the Alpha Scents traps, whether covered with HMPSA or with SG, usually caught more R.
A cross-regional approach was adopted to design the plant with engineering and operations expertise from other Bostik HMPSA
production sites heavily utilized.
Eastman's technical study reports that depending on the specific performance demands of a given HMPSA
application, it is now possible to provide substantial substitution of isoprene monomers in an adhesives formulation using a blend of the KRATON Polymers SIBS (styrene-isoprene-butadiene-styrene) block copolymer and SBS (styrene-butadiene-styrene) block copolymer.
