The global market for amorphous polyalphaolefins reached $345.0 million in 2018 and should reach $506.5 million by 2024, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.9% for the period of 2018-2024. APAO is an amorphous copolymer that is produced through the copolymerization of alpha olefin in the presence of a special catalyst such as a Zeigler-Natta catalyst. The term “APAO” includes polymers such as amorphous hexene (APH), copolymer amorphous ethylene (APE), homopolymer amorphous propylene (APP), amorphous butene (APB) and terpolymer ethylene.
APAO is a by-product of isotactic polypropylene (iPP). Currently, the production of APAO is possible with polymerization of propylene and ethylene, along with the invention of Ziegler-Natta (Z-N) catalyst has provided satisfactory results, as these are utilized in the polymerization process. AmAOs (enzyme 4-amorphen-11-ol synthase) are synthesized by a specially designed catalyst system based on a Z-N supported catalyst and an alkyl aluminum cocatalyst. Unlike other polymers, APAO does not have a well-defined and sharp melting point. Instead, as its temperature rises, it becomes softer, changing from a solid to a high viscosity fluid over a wide temperature range.
APAO-based adhesives have gained prominence in various manufacturing industries, including building and construction, packaging, personal hygiene, bookbinding, automotive and woodworking. APAO has significant properties such as quick setting time and resistance to moisture, and it can be used in various environmental conditions. As a result, it is ideal as a base polymer in hot-melt adhesives, paper laminating, elastomer extenders in sealants and pressure-sensitive adhesives. The advantages of APAO includes low odor, heat stability, cohesion and excellent binding with substrates. APAO can be applied by using different methods such as spraying, extrusion, rolls coating, slot coating and pumping. Further, APAO-based hot-melt adhesive is widely used in the production of automotive parts due to its capability to form the ideal bonds needed for the contraction and expansion of vehicle parts.
Amorphous polyalphaolefin is increasingly being adopted for various purposes to serve a wide range of industries such as automotive, furniture, packaging, nonwoven hygiene, electronics and footwear. It features a useful blend of the chemical and physical properties required to form a versatile material that can be used in various adhesives including hot-melt adhesives (HMAs). It is prepared through direct reactor synthesis and is used in HMAs in large amounts. The benefits of APAO include resistance to moisture, chemicals and UV; corrosion inhibition; and ample availability of feedstock. In addition, it has excellent thermal stability, significant adhesion and hot tack properties. APAO’s ability to bond with various substrates as well as its cohesion and gas barrier behavior are also a few of its significant properties. In addition, APAO has significant adhesion ability for various substrates such as polyethylene, polypropylene, polyurethane foam, paper, fiber and nonwovens. However, poor adhesion to low surface energy and smooth surface substrates and limited strength are some of the limitations of APAO.
The rise in the pandemic—coronavirus—has currently halted the progress and impacting the economies across the world. With the measures taken by the various governments across the world to Lockdown their respective countries, especially the effected cities to contain the spread of the virus. It is estimated that the governments are taking necessary precautions to contain the economic slowdown. So, the report does not consider the impact, as it was not yet controlled and can be defined.
