Functional Polyolefins

Arkema's functional polyolefins

Lotader®

Lotader® terpolymers are reactive polyolefins and contain chemical functions such as maleic anhydride or epoxide (glycidyl methacrylate). They are widely used in extrusion coating and offer excellent adhesion on many supports, and are compatible with a large number of polymers and difficult substrates such as printed films. They are used in a large number of applications, such as coextrusion binders or tie layers in multilayer structures for the packaging industry, pipeline coatings, cables and hotmelt adhesives. Lotader® terpolymers are widely used as an impact modifier for the engineering of polymers such as polyamides and polyesters for the electronic and automotive sectors. With the scope to replace PVC, they can be used as coupling agents for HFFR compounds.

Applications

  • Bitumen Reactive Modification
  • Packaging
  • Impact Modifiers
  • Wire & Cables
  • Plastic Recycling
  • Pipeline Coating

Lotryl®

Lotryl® resins are suitable for many applications where an excellent thermal stability and good processability are required. Thanks to their outstanding adhesive properties and excellent compatibility with thermoplastics, Lotryl® copolymers are used as impact modifiers for engineering plastics (PET, PBT), base material for highly filled compounds (Wire & Cables, masterbatches), sealable layers and films in flexible packaging.

Applications

  • Films
  • Packaging
  • Hot melt adhesives
  • Wire & Cables
  • Bitumen modification
  • Foams and filled compounds
  • Modification of engineering plastics

Orevac®

Orevac® resins are polyolefins (PE, PP, or EVA) modified with maleic anhydride.

Due to their reactivity, they are used in multiple applications such as multilayer packaging, pipe coating, coupling agents, etc. Thanks to their adhesive power, Orevac® grafted polymers are used as tie layer in the production of multilayer barrier films. They can also be used as coupling agents in PP and HFFR compounds to improve mechanical properties of filled polyolefins compounds. Orevac® grafted polyolefins give excellent bonding strengh to EVOH barrier resins especially Evasin ethylene vinyl alcohol copolymers.
Arkema offers both ready to use Orevac® thermoplastic adhesives and concentrates for dilution by customers.

Applications

  • Flexible Packaging
  • Rigid Packaging
  • Bottles (Blow Molding)
  • Multilayer Tubes and Pipes
  • Pipe Coating
  • Compounds
  • Automotive
  • Cables
  • Thermoadhesives Films

Evatane®

Evatane® resins are ethylene copolymers with a high vinyl acetate content (18% to 42%). Evatane® is more elastomeric than polyethylene, compatible with a wide range of polymers, and easy to process. Evatane® copolymers are used in many applications for many markets such as hotmelt adhesive, ink, wire and cable, automotive, encapsulant film for solar panel, packaging and road bitumen modification.

Applications

  • Hot Melt Adhesives
  • Wire & Cables
  • Packaging
  • Conpounds
  • Foams
  • Inks
  • Bitumen
  • Solar Panels
