POLYETHYLENE ADHESIVES

Polyethylene is a thermoplastic polymer consisting of long chains produced by combing the ingredient monomer ethylene (IUPAC name ethene), the name comes from the ingredient and not the actual chemical resulting. The ethylene actually converts to ethane as it takes its place in a polymer and straight sections of the polymer are the same structure as the simple chain hydrocarbons, e.g., propane, decane and other straight single-bonded carbon chains. As with any polymer, the structure of the resulting substance defies molecular description due to cross branching of the chains. The recommended scientific name polyethene is systematically derived from the scientific name of the monomer.[2][3] In certain circumstances it is useful to use a structure-based nomenclature; in such cases IUPAC recommends poly(methylene)[3] (poly(methanediyl) is a non-preferred alternative[4][5]). The difference in names between the two systems is due to the opening up of the monomer's double bond upon polymerization.

The name is abbreviated to PE in a manner similar to that by which other polymers like polypropylene and polystyrene are shortened to PP and PS respectively. In the United Kingdom the polymer is commonly called polythene, although this is not recognized scientifically. Read more about Polyethylene on WikiPedia...
 
Polyethylene is a thermoplastic, that is, it is one of a variety of substrates that have the property of becoming hard and rigid when cooled and are moldable when heated. Thermoplastics soften or fuse when heated and harden and become rigid again when cooled without undergoing any appreciable chemical change. Polyethylene comes in many different chemical and mechanical properties, including adhesion, and in varying thicknesses -- both of which affect its coefficient of expansion. Successful long term bonding of polyethylene to itself and to other substrates, requires careful preparation and matching of the adhesive being used with the differing COEs of the substrates involved. BONDiTTM products are among the few available that can be used to bond polyethylene to substrates with other COE's and survive harsh environments and long deployment without debonding.

A quick, clean and economical way to bond a wide variety of materials from wood, metal and glass to hard-to-bond plastics and vinyl. Offering polyamides, polyesters and EVA copolymers, they're fast, non-toxic and non-flammable. Our diverse line of Hot Melt Glue will meet your company and individual needs for adhesive applications.
