The global market of amorphous polyalphaolefin (APAO) is expected to grow modestly and exceed REDACTED through 2023, growing at a CAGR of REDACTED during the forecast period of 2018 to 2023. APAO is anamorphous copolymer that is produced by the process of copolymerization of alphaolefin in thepresence of a special catalyst such as a Zeigler-Natta catalyst. APAO includes polymers such as amorphous hexene (APH), copolymer amorphous ethylene (APE), homopolymer amorphous propylene (APP), amorphous butene (APB), and terpolymer ethylene. 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, resistance to moisture and can be used in various environmental conditions. As a result, it makes it ideal to be used as base polymers in hot-melt adhesives, paper laminating, elastomer extenders in sealants, and pressure sensitive adhesives. 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 hotmelt adhesive is widely used in the production of automotive parts due to its capability of forming ideal
bonds, which are needed for the contraction and expansion of the vehicle parts.
Amorphous polyalphaolefin is increasingly being adopted for varied purposes to serve a wide range of industries such as automotive, furniture, packaging, nonwoven hygiene, electronics, and footwear. It comprises a useful blend of chemical and physical properties required to form a versatile material 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. The ability to bond with various substrates, cohesion and gas barrier behavior are also a few significant properties of APAO. In addition, it 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.
APAO is gaining popularity across the globe due to its wide range of applications, low cost adhesive technology, and significant thermal stability. It plays a key role as an adhesive agent for various applications in hygiene, including feminine hygiene, baby diapers, adult incontinence, gowns and drapes, mattress protector pads, dental bibs, meat pads, and pet training pads. Its automotive applications are increasingly gaining momentum due to significant growth of the automotive market. Its unique features such as inherent moisture resistance, good UV stability, significant thermal stability, and ability to function even in high temperature makes it a ubiquitous material. Additionally, it has considerable demand from furniture industry due to its low cost, high initial tack, significant cohesion, flexibility, high productivity, and significant strength. It is widely used in foam lamination, panel lamination, mattress ticking, foam bonding, edge lamination, drawer liners, and other furniture applications.
Moreover, corrosion inhibition and moisture resistance are some other properties, which makes APAO a significant material for varied purposes. It enables to protect core of the cables, sustain wide range of temperature and has significant applications in varied domains. It has an anticorrosive property that tends to protect metal from corrosion. Several characteristic properties of APAO such as chemical inertness and anti-UV properties protect the products or components from reacting with the UV-rays. Therefore, these properties make APAO a very useful material for HMAs.
