Formulate highly flexible and durable SMP-based Adhesives & Sealants thanks to Dynasylan
Dynasylan® 1189 is an accompanied adhesion promoter for moisture curable SMP-based adhesives and sealants. When exposed to moisture and incorporated into the final siloxane network, Dynasylan® 1189 exhibits specifically high flexibilities. Further important side effects of formulating Dynasylan® 1189 are better chemical and moisture resistance of the finished products.
Replace DIBP by Non-Phthalate alternatives in Waterborne Adhesives for Consumer products
Regulations and consumer preference are influencing the demand for safe alternatives to phthalate plasticizers to be used in Consumer products, especially since DIBP became listed as a substance of very high concern (SVHC).
Master your processes with full control on curing kinetics
In demanding applications such as Transportation, Electronics, Electrical insulation or General Industry, the success of structural adhesives does not rely only on end-product performance. It is crucial that processing conditions (as well as EHS considerations) meet customer, market or applications requirements.
Benefit from 300
C resistant epoxy resin
In demanding applications such as Transportation, Electronics, Electrical insulation or General Industry it is crucial that the end-use product resists to high and very high temperatures, first to ensure a trust relationship experience with customers and second for developers to formulate adhesives with properties that will remain unchanged overtime.
Increase the Performance of your adhesive at frozen temperatures with SBC multiarm polymer
Frozen food labeling and packaging is a real challenge when formulating with high Tg polymers like SIS. Indeed, adhesives have a brittle consistence, losing most of their properties under the Tg of polymers and tackifiers used in their formulation. That's why, to perform at frozen temperatures, it is very important to select the right polymer and tackifier in the adhesives' formulation.
Superior UV light resistance and reduced viscosity with SEBS copolymers: the right choice for HMPSA applications
Dynasol has developed its own hydrogenation technology for SEBS copolymers production. This novel technology allows adhesive formulators to achieve polymer saturation levels superior to 99%, this means polymer stability to UV and ozone light attack and superior than other technologies in the market. Superior UV light resistance & improved adhesive cohesion
Formulate green adhesives & sealants with broad adhesion performance in difficult conditions thanks to Dynasylan
Thanks to Dynasylan
1146, formulators can develop Adhesives & Sealants with outstanding adhesion performance and an important water-repellent effect. It also allows formulating environmentally friendly and safe Adhesives or Sealants.It is particularly suitable for Construction, Parquet applications and Transportation.
Get rid of hydrocarbon resins while getting better color stability and ageing
TS 95 naturally-based tackifier is the perfect solution for HMPSA formulators. Below graphs demonstrate of Dercolyte
TS 95 highly valuable attributes: color stability and good ageing and adhesive/cohesive performances.
Develop best in-class PSAs & get improved productivity thanks to SBC multiarm polymer
Develop best in-class PSAs & get improved productivity thanks to SBC multiarm polymer. In order to offer additional alternatives adhesives formulators to reach a wider range of adhesive / viscosity properties balance, Dynasol has recently developed a novel structure with a multiarm architecture.
Solve Your Adhesive Formulation Issues thanks to High Performance SBS: Full Substitution of SIS and C5-based PSA
Formulators have now the possibility to use solutions based on the comprehensive range of SBS / SBS multiarm polymers. It covers from partial to full substitution of SIS with no major change on formulation.
Formulate HIGH SOLIDS SPRAYABLE ADHESIVES with SBC for strong adhesion and reduced health concerns during processing
The Dynasol technical team strongly versed in the SBC field has successfully developed sprayable adhesive formulations with high solids content while obtaining a low viscosity, a quite uncommon duality in today's standard.
Get rid of SIS-based PSA formulation limitations - the next level in productivity and application speed enhancement!
Dynasol has recently optimized its SBS (Solprene ® 4302) and S-SBR (Solprene® 1217) portfolio to provide a sustainable solution, allowing a decrease in viscosity by partially substituting the SIS content ratio with no additional composition change.
Increased productivity thanks to higher thermal stability
Dynasol has developed the last SSBR generation, Solprene® 1217. Because of its multiple advantages, hot-melt formulators can now overcome soft points of other conventional polymers on the market place.
Extend the adhesive/cohesive balance window with Liquid Dercolyte® LTG (dual plasticiser & tackifier) for higher formulation flexibility
DRT, key player in the terpene resin field, has conceived Dercolyte® LTG. Mainly dedicated to be used as plasticizer or tackifier, this new resin, under a liquid form, not only open wide the possibilities of cohesive/adhesive strength fine-tuning, but can also ensure higher level of peel and shear altogether compared to conventional hydrocarbon liquid resins.
Solprene® 4302: labeled for productivity
Labeling is a high throughput application where any increase in application speed may represent a gain in productivity, and so in profitability. Dynasol latest development leads to this improvement, making the tack properties allowed by Solprene® 4302, faster than conventional commercial polymer reference.
Renewable Polyurethane Adhesives and Sealants
Thanks to a breakthrough technology, soybean oil-based polyols, Dow Polyurethane developed innovative renewable PU prepolymers grades to specifically address this challenge. Bio-based prepolymers can be designed with a variety of specifications to achieve the desired level of performance.
Improve productivity and reduce operative costs of your packaging adhesive formulation thanks to SBC technology
Dynasol Solprene® 4301 is preferred to formulate HMA because it allows to improve cohesive strength. Fomulated with Solprene® 4318, adhesive viscosity can be reduced. As a result, the temperature required for the application is lower, improving adhesive set time, and the productivity.
Get Improved Road Maintenance Devices Adhesion
Solprene® 4301 provides the most reliable permanent installation of road devices. Indeed, one of the most important features of SBC adhesives and sealants is their versatility.
Controlled Reactivity Polyurethane Prepolymers: speed-up the production of your adhesives in moisture curing applications
Dow technology (Controlled Reactivity Prepolymers) enables faster green strength build and lower volatile organic compounds, while providing a more robust cure profile across varying temperature and relative humidity conditions., providing competitve advantage to polyurethane adhesives formulators.
