Hot Melts Optimization for Quality at Lower Costs

  1. 1. Hot Melts Optimization for Quality at Lower CostsA 90 min online short course by Edward Petrie To register, please visit: melts often compete with other hot melts and adhesives technologies on the basis of cost – arenewed daily challenge with steady raw material price increase!Lower the cost of your hot melts while maintaining performance with a structured review of thecurrent viable strategies (tested & approved by your peers)Cost optimization will cover both formulation development (base polymers, tackifiers, plasticizers... )and processing techniques.Why you should attend: 1. Feed your cost optimization program with valid-only solutions & avoid loss in melt properties, wetting, adhesion, shear, peel, tack, durability... 2. Clarify how latest developments in base polymers and additives can be used to reduce the adhesive costs 3. Learn what other companies have done; what worked, what didn’t, and why – this is exclusive content that you wont find in books or on the internetWho is it for?Experienced adhesive formulators looking for solutions to develop more cost-effective Hot MeltsOutlineThis course will look at all aspects of hot melt adhesive formulation as it relates to cost. Theobjective is to promote practices that control the consistency and performance properties of theadhesive but yet provide reduced costs. 1. Introduction (State of the Economy / State of the Industry) At the end 2. Basic Requirements of the training 3. Components in Hot Melt Adhesive s there will be a 4. Formulation Development Q&A Session where you 5. Processing, Converting, End-Use of HMAs 6. Review of Recent Development Activities can pose questions to Edward Petrie. A transcript of all the questions & answers will be made available after the event. 1To register, please visit: mpaign=eTC991LKslides hare

Broad enough to cover the industry, yet enough detail to be a good primer/refresher. Nicejob on content"Marcus R. , from LRB E COMÉRCIO DE PRODUTOS QUÍMICOS LTDA:"Very Good! It covered some formulation ideas I had but I wasn´t sure about the viability. "Madelyn B. , from Sasol:"Information was relevant. Introduction regarding mark et trends was useful. I now have a betterunderstanding of some concepts and their relevance." 2To register, please visit: mpaign=eTC991LKslides hare
