ADMER™ Adhesive Resin is a modified polyolefin with functional groups, designed to bond to a variety of polyolefins, ionomers, polyamides, ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH), polyesters (PET), polycarbonates, polystyrenes and metals such as steel and aluminum. Essentially, ADMER™ functions as a tie-layer resin to bond dissimilar resins together in increasingly popular multilayer barrier packaging structures. In unique multi-layer barrier structures the tie layer resin combines properties of different materials, such as gas barrier resins and moisture barrier resins. The use of this adhesive resin in packaging structures restricts the passage of oxygen, flavor and odor permeation.
Available in pellet form, this adhesive resin can be used in a wide variety of coextrusion processes for bottles, tubes, sheets and films. It is currently used in used in automotive applications as well as, chemical/industrial, healthcare and food packaging.
