Method and aqueous adhesive composition for the production of panels made from vegetable matter
Graux and Mentink of Roquette Freres, France, developed an adhesive including vegetable starch the amylose content of which is between 30 and 60%. This adhesive is used forming lignocelluloses panel by hot pressing. The emissions of formaldehyde vapor are minimized as low as possible during processing and later use. .
Propylene-based polymer, propylene-based polymer composition, pellet and pressure-sensitive adhesive
Akai et al of Mitsui Chemicals, Inc., Japan, developed propylene-based materials for pressure-sensitive adhesives to various adherends, which show a desired initial adhesion and will not contaminate the adherends and which have excellent pellet handling properties. The propylene-based polymer (A) includes 65 to 80 mol % of a structural unit derived from propylene, 5 to 10 mol % of a structural unit derived from ethylene and 15 to 25 mol % of a structural unit derived from a C4-20 .alpha.-olefin (wherein these percentages are calculated based on 100 mol % of the total of the structural unit derived from propylene, the structural unit derived from ethylene and the structural unit derived from a C4-20 .alpha.-olefin) and has a heat of crystal fusion of 5 to 45 (J/g) as measured by DSC.

Adhesive resin composition and laminate
Ikeda of Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, Japan, developed a packaging adhesive consisting of 10-99.5 wt% (A), 0.5-30 wt% unsaturated-carboxylic-acid-modified polypropylene and 0-89.5 wt% another olefin resin. A consists of 10-60 wt% propylene homopolymer and 40-90 wt% propylene/ethylene copolymer.. (RDC 8/29/2012)
Polymeric compositions with adhesive properties
Wautier and Gauthy of Solvay, Belgium, developed an adhesive consisting of (1) at least one fluoropolymer (A) grafted by at least one compound (a), wherein the compound (a) contains at least one functional group (f1) capable of conferring adhesion properties on the fluoropolymer; (2) at least one olefin polymer (B) grafted by at least one compound (b), wherein the compound (b) contains at least one functional group (f2) capable of conferring adhesion properties on the olefin polymer and of reacting with the functional group (f1) contained in the compound (a); and (3) at least one polymer (C) chosen from polyesters and polyamides.

Adhesive fillets and method and apparatus for making same
Mead and Potter of Northrop Grumman Systems Corporation, formed shaped adhesive fillets by stacking multiple layers of adhesive sheets, consolidating the stacked layers, cutting strips from the consolidated layers and forming the strips into adhesive fillets having the desired cross sectional shapes. The fillets may be formed by feeding the strips through an apparatus comprising opposing rollers and a catcher, which facilitates release of the adhesive fillets from the rollers. The formed adhesive fillets are useful for applications such as stiffened panels for aircraft. (RDC 7/9/2012)
Polyolefin adhesive compositions and articles made therefrom
Abhari et al of ExxonMobil, Texas, developed a hot melt adhesive for bonding paper cardboard packaging consisting of 1) a functionalized component, 2) tackifier, and 3) an olefin polymer comprising one or more C3 to C40 olefins, optionally one or more diolefins, and less than 5 mole % of ethylene having a Dot T-Peel of 1 Newton or more, a branching index (g') of 0.95 or less measured at the Mz of the polymer; and an Mw of 100,000 or less; where the functional component is selected from the group consisting of functionalized polymers, functionalized oligomers and beta nucleating agents; and where the Gardner color of the adhesive does not change by more than 7 Gardner units when the adhesive has been heat aged at 180.degree. C. for 48 hours as compared to the Gardner color of the unaged composition. (RDC 6/27/2012)
