Wednesday, July 31, 2024
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM (EDT)

You will receive an email with a link to the GoToWebinar form once your registration is processed

Event Details

Overview:

This webinar will cover the fundamentals of emulsion polymerization along with a brief review the basics of polymer chemistry. The various emulsion polymerization techniques that are in use currently will be covered including recipes and polymerization steps. This webinar will focus on how to formulate a PSA for end use applications and prepare a coater ready emulsion formulation. Finally, the sustainability aspects of emulsion polymerization will be covered with advantages over other adhesive technologies. The goal of this webinar is to equip the formulator/process engineer to understand the details on emulsion polymerization to successfully formulate in the laboratory.

Objectives: 

  1. Understand the fundamentals of emulsion polymerization
  2. Learn the formulation steps to successfully formulate emulsion formula for PSA applications
  3. Understand the sustainability aspects of emulsion polymerization over other adhesive technologies

Agenda:

  1. Introduction to Emulsion Polymerization
