SIS Block Copolymers for Hot Melt Pressure Sensitive Adhesives
Geert Vermunicht, Ph.D.
Consumer Market Development Leader
In this paper a brief introduction will be given on the anionic polymerization of Styrenic block copolymers. The benefits of a 2-phase structure will be explained for the formulation of hot melt pressure sensitive adhesives.
The SIS molecular parameters effect on tape performances will be demonstrated with adhesives test data and with dynamic mechanical analyses.
