More mileage for your Hot Melt Adhesives

The family of AFFINITY™ GA Polyolefin Elastomers (POEs) provide performance well beyond the norm for everyone along the value chain.

AFFINITY™ GA POEs include a range of polymers that offer performance, processing, and end-user advantages over incumbent technologies such as EVA (ethylene-vinyl acetate) formulations.

AFFINITY™ GA polymers reliably stick boxes and other substrates together over a broad range of temperatures, with added benefits such as reduced odors and gelling, less machine wear and tear, and better color in use.

AFFINITY™ GA POEs offers a variety of adhesive needs

Scientists in labs

What do AFFINITY™ GA POEs help processors and formulators achieve?

AFFINITY™ GA POEs are characterized by novel chemistry that combines high flow, low crystallinity, and low molecular weight. The one-of-a-kind balance of AFFINITY™ GA POEs allows processors and formulators to achieve:

  • Hot melt adhesives (HMAs) formulations that stick better
  • Blends that are more flexible and durable
  • Longer pot life for less downtime

How does AFFINITY™ GA help manufactures?

Manufacturers require easy-to-process and cost-effective components. AFFINITY™ GA polyolefin elastomers can help address both needs. They enable hot melt adhesives (HMAs) that offer:

  • High-performance adhesion across a wide temperature range
  • Outstanding processability
  • Low taste and odor transmission
  • Colorless formulations
  • Less plugging and clogging for reduced downtime

AFFINITY™ GA Polyolefin Elastomers

Brand owners appreciate the ease in use, aesthetics, and economies offered by AFFINITY™ GA polyolefin elastomers:

  • Exceptional sealability, with high hot tack and low heat seal temperature
  • High green strength (tack) and rapid set during compression cycle enabling high line speeds and reduced waste
  • Stable viscosity - excellent control of viscosity resulting in control of bead size and placement
  • Less plugging and clogging for reduced maintenance and downtime
  • Excellent optics
  • Greater sealing mileage per pound
  • Reduced adhesive usage

Keeping consumers top of mind

When it comes to products and their packaging, consumers demand high performance in the form of dependable and consistent seals. Adhesion that stays firm where it must, while allowing easy opening of packaging.

Advantages for many applications

Not a packager? Not to worry. AFFINITY™ GA polymers offer advantages for other hot melt applications, including many of the same efficiencies enjoyed by the packaging value chain. Discover their uses in:

AFFINITY™ GA polyolefin elastomers can add hot melt adhesive sealing strength and dependability to a variety of rigid and flexible primary packaging, secondary packaging such as shipping boxes, and tapes and labels, too.

Choices make a difference

The polymer of a hot-melt adhesive formulation determines the choice of the other raw materials. There are currently four AFFINITY™ GA polymer grades available to better help in matching adhesive requirements to a specific formulation.


Designed for low application temperature hot melt adhesives of 248°F (120°C) or below.


Designed for low application temperature hot melt adhesives of 275°F ─ 302°F (135°C ─ 150°C).


Designed for all standard HMA application temperatures (approximately 347°F [175˚C]).


Enabling excellent bonding on hard-to-bond substrates.

Make your best choice

AFFINITY™ GA POEs are versatile polymers designed to help your applications flow faster, flex longer and stick better. Combining high flow with low crystallinity, these raw materials allow you to reach higher levels of performance, processing ease, and value in polymer modification/compounding and hot melt adhesive applications.
