  • Publication number: 20140329074
    Abstract: The invention relates to hot-melt adhesive compositions having at least one thermoplastic poly-a-olefin that is solid at 25° C. and that contains silane groups, at least one soft resin having a melting point or softening point between ?10 and 40° C., and at least one silane that is liquid at 25° C. The hot-melt adhesive compositions are characterized by an improved open time and reduced viscosity compared to the prior art that cannot be achieved by means of other low-molecular-weight components that are normally added to reduce the viscosity, because the components escape from the adhesive formulation over time. The hot-melt adhesives according to the invention are suitable in particular as laminating adhesives and have a desirable low viscosity during the application, while good cross-linking density can be achieved by the addition of silane that is liquid at room temperature.
