Event Details

This a Free to Attend webinar for everyone.

This webinar will present the newly developed polymer, AerafinTM 230 by Synthomer and focus on its properties and value in use in multiple end use applications.  In this webinar we will share how this polymer will enable the formulators to design high performing hot melt adhesives for demanding applications, such as above the belt applications in the automotive interior market or woodworking.  This polymer will allow the formulators in developing adhesives with high adhesion to a variety of substrates along with high heat resistance.  The performance will be demonstrated using key test methods such as peel strength at elevated temperatures, dead load test or SAFT along with comparative data between AerafinTM 230 vs competitive polyolefins,  This should help the audience answer the question whether this new polymer can bridge the performance gap between a non-reactive and a reactive system.

Learning Objective:

  • Properties of Synthomer’s innovative polymer AerafinTM 230 for hot melt formulations and its key value propositions
  • Comparisons of performance of model formulations using AerafinTM 230 vs commercial HMAs considered as best in class in the market for automotive interior and above the belt applications
  • Key Trends in the automotive industry that will require moving away from reactive systems and how new Synthomer polymer can help formulators reach their goals
  • Potential for using the new polymer in woodworking applications


  1. Adhesives in the automotive interior application and key trends
  2. Features/Outcome/Benefits for Customer of AerafinTM 230
  3. Key Value Propositions of AerafinTM 230
  4. Demonstration of AerafinTM 230 performance in a model HMA formulation vs commercial HMAs
  5. Summary 

Who Should Attend:

This free to attend webinar is most applicable to everyone in working in or closely related to the Transportation sector.  Technology managers, chemists, scientists and professionals in roles such as R&D, manufacturing, process/engineering, and technical service & applications will learn about this new technology and greatly benefit from it.
