Hot-melt adhesives (HMA)

We offer a portfolio of performance products for your hot-melt adhesives (HMA). Escorez™ tackifying resins provide optimal hold and superior manufacturing flexibility versus waterborne or solvent-based adhesives. They are solvent-free, thermoplastic materials that are mixed and applied in the molten state at temperature varying from 120° to 180°C.

Vistamaxx performance polymers are widely used in adhesive solutions in the assembly, hygiene and packaging industries. They are highly compatible with Escorez tackifiers, and the products often are used together, to achieve benefits such as low odor and high performance.

Uses and benefits

ExxonMobil Chemical offers adhesive formulators products, supply reliability and expertise to help improve their packaging products, processes and cost efficiency.

Escorez™ tackifying resins

Escorez tackifiers serve a broad variety of hot-melt adhesive applications with features ranging from high clarity and compatibility to low odor and flexibility.

Escorene™ Ultra EVA

Escorene Ultra ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) copolymers resins are well-suited for case and carton sealing and closures, featuring compatibility with both hydrocarbon and natural tackifiers and most waxes.

Vistamaxx™ performance polymers

Low viscosity Vistamaxx polymers create new possibilities for high-performance, low odor and high mileage hot-melt adhesive formulations for cardboard packaging:

Up to 90 percent polymer loading possible
Significantly lower density and lighter weight formulations for increased mileage, compared to EVA and metallocene polyethylene-based alternatives
Looking for other base adhesive polymers for your packaging applications? Consider ExxonMobil™ Ethylene n-Butyl Acrylate (EnBA) copolymers and other Vistamaxx polymers.

Adhesives formulators can count on ExxonMobil Chemical for products, supply reliability and expertise to help improve their hygiene products, processes and cost efficiency.

Escorez tackifying resins

Adhesives formulated with Escorez tackifiers are compatible with a broad selection of polymers, including ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA), styrenic block copolymers (SIS, SBS, SEBS), metallocene polyolefins and polyalphaolefins. They help maintain the integrity and appearance of the nonwoven fabrics, plastic films and elastic substrates commonly used in the construction of disposable goods.

Vistamaxx performance polymers

Low viscosity Vistamaxx polymers create new possibilities for high-performance, low odor hot-melt adhesive formulations for hygiene construction and elastic attachment:

  • 45-65 percent polymer loading enables formulation flexibility to meet open and set time needs
  • Excellent adhesion to low surface energy substrates
