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
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
