ADMER™ Adhesive Resin Applications

ADMER™ is used as tie layer for dissimilar materials in a multi-layer barrier structure. Key applications include automotive fuel systems, multilayer barrier packaging for cosmetic, pharmaceutical, or food products, industrial metal coating, as well as oil and gas pipeline protection.

Automotive Fuel Systems

ADMER™ is used as a tie layer resin in integrated plastic fuel systems. Available in pellet form, this high-performance adhesive resin shows superior long-term adhesion, toughness, aging resistance and enables fuel system suppliers and OEMs to deliver fuel components with low permeation and superior durability.

  • Plastic Fuel Tanks
  • Fuel Lines
  • Fuel Filler Pipes
  • Fuel Connectors

ADMER™ binds the barrier materials in a multilayer construction with the toughness and adhesion required to deliver consistent permeation resistance, preventing evaporative emissions without weakening fuel system performance. 

Cosmetic Packaging

ADMER™ may be used as a tie layer in film, cup, tray, tube and bottle applications. Common personal care and consumer packages for skincare, body care, and toiletries include:

  • Body Lotion Containers
  • Make Up Bottles
  • Oval and Round Tubes

Pharmaceutical Packaging 

As a tie layer that bonds dissimilar materials in a multi-layer barrier structure, ADMER™ enables the development of new high-performance healthcare packaging, including:

  • Tubing
  • PTP packaging
  • Bottles

Food Packaging 

Low permeation barrier materials in packaging structures restrict the passage of oxygen, flavor and odor. ADMER™ Adhesive Resin enables packaging engineers to design customized multilayer structures in rigid or flexible format, for the packaging of:

  • Ketchup
  • Mayonnaise
  • BBQ sauce
  • Salad dressing
  • Pudding
  • Meat
  • Cheese
  • Pasta sauce
  • Soup
  • Applesauce
  • Beverages

ADMER™ Adhesive Resin exhibits durable adhesion during, and following secondary processing:

  • Thermoforming
  • Sterilization
  • Orientation

The co-extrusion coating of ADMER™ with other plastics onto paper or foil offers additional opportunities in the food packaging area. ADMER™ grades are certified and comply with FDA, EEC directives, and Japan Hygienic Olefin and Styrene Plastics Association (JOSPA) regulations. ADMER™ grades may be used in direct food contact.
