Low Melting Multi-Polymers
NYCOA’s portfolio of specialty random multi-polymers is engineered to offer low crystallinity and hence lower melting point versus standard nylon grades.
NYCOA’s low melting nylons grades are used in applications such as hot-melt adhesives and color concentrate carriers. The melting point for NYCOA’s low-melt point grades ranges from 100°C to 160°C and the melt viscosity can be tailored to meet customer performance specifications.
As thermoplastic adhesives, these NYCOA resins offer:
a low yellowing index
excellent dry cleaning resistance
strong chemical and heat resistance
excellent green strength
improved UV resistance.
When used as hot-melt adhesives, NYCOA’s low melting nylons are VOC-free, with 100% adhesive content, and can be processed as a single-component system.
They can be converted via a range of processes including melt print, extrusion (film, web, and filament), overmolding, solvent systems, and powder.
They are used in applications requiring a solution to complex bonding problem; such as automotive headliners, technical textiles, floor coverings, upholstery, and specialty apparel.
