Description

    RELATED APPLICATION
  • This application claims priority under 35 U.S.C. §119(e) to U.S. provisional application Ser. No. 60/487,690 filed on Jul. 16, 2003, incorporated by reference herein.
  • FIELD OF THE INVENTION
  • The invention relates to an adhesive and to a composite article made by joining components with the adhesive. In one embodiment, a disposable article can be made by adhesively bonding layers including a film, a woven or non-woven fabric, tissue or sheet to a sheet-like material using a novel hot melt adhesive that can be variously applied or can be sprayed. Still further, the invention relates to the manufacture of a disposable composite article having a cover and an absorbent layer, held within the cover. The cover can be formed from a porous sheet adhered to a fluid impervious backing layer and can have further fabrics, sheets or films added. The absorbent layer can be made of a tissue, an absorbent, or combinations of an absorbent and outer cover layers. The adhesive of the invention is used to bind the components in a mechanically stable article or to join the outer cover to the absorbent. The sprayable hot melt adhesive composition typically contains a novel blend of thermoplastic copolymer and a compatible tackifying resin. Disposable articles such as an infant or adult diaper and feminine pads can be made with this adhesive material.

  • The adhesive compositions of the invention are useful for a variety of disposable construction applications. The adhesive is low in odor. Low odor compositions substantially improve the working environment of workers who maintain equipment used in spraying the adhesive onto the workpiece. Further, the disposable articles, when removed from their packaging also have little or no detectable odor which can be unacceptable to many end users. The adhesive of the invention is also light in color, resulting in a clear, substantially transparent glue line on the disposable materials. Typical disposables are made from white or transparent, woven or non-woven fabrics, polyethylene or polyester films and colored or charred adhesives are unacceptable in such construction applications. The adhesive of the invention is preferably not tacky, preferably pelletizable. Pelletizable adhesives are relatively easy to package and use at the disposable assembly location. The adhesive is thermally stable such that it can be placed into applications equipment and be maintained for a substantial period of time at hot melt temperature prior to application.
  • A substantial need exists in this art to obtain such a low odor, light color, non-tacky, non-pressure sensitive (pelletizable), thermally stable, hot melt adhesive. Lastly, the adhesive material of this invention is formulated to minimize cost, and maximize adhesive performance without any reduction in quality in the resulting disposable article.
  • BRIEF DISCUSSION OF THE INVENTION
  • We have found an improved hot melt non-pressure sensitive adhesive. The material can be used as a novel spray-on adhesive composition made from a high MI polymer and a high melt tackifier component that interacts to produce a composition that can form a low odor, light color, non-tacky, hot melt adhesive material that can be used in disposable article manufacture. The adhesive is thermally stable at hot melt application conditions, is low in cost, is easily applied and produces high quality disposable articles.
  • A first embodiment of the invention is a hot melt, preferably non-pressure sensitive, adhesive composition. A second embodiment of the invention is a disposable article using the hot melt adhesive in a construction application. A third embodiment of the invention is a method using the hot melt of the invention to assemble a disposable article.
  • The adhesive can comprise, in its entirety, one of a number of useful polymers, a blend of polymers, or alternatively the adhesive can comprise a hot melt adhesive comprising at least one polymer admixed with other thermoplastic diluents such as tackifying resins, etc. The polymer provides the properties such as cohesiveness and strength. The polymer is typically combined with a tackifier or other material to modify the adhesive properties for use in the intended application. The blend of materials is formulated to exhibit the same desired properties. In this material relatively high melt or high viscosity tackifier is combined with relatively low molecular weight (high MI) thermoplastic components to enhance the cohesive strength of the mixture while maintaining good processability.
  • In production of disposables, a hot melt adhesive (HMA) is typically extruded at elevated temperature onto the disposable. Layers of a fabric or film can be added and blended. Disposables with secure bonding that traps layers of fabric or tissue in the HMA can be made because the adhesive can be extruded directly on the work piece. In recent years, increasing attention has been directed to development of sprayable hot melt adhesives. The work piece or substrate-manufacturing regimen can use a spray-on adhesive to increase productivity. Such spray-on adhesives are delivered from a plurality of narrow orifices in the form of fibers, threads or filaments having a substantially circular cross-section with a diameter less than 0.05 inch, typically about 0.01 to 0.001 inch. Fine line or spiral spray patterns are used. The spray-on adhesive takes on the form of fibers that have substantial surface area in comparison to the mass of the fiber. Typically, after spraying, the adhesives reach ambient temperatures upon immediate contact with the work piece. Extruded hot melt adhesives retain a significant amount of heat after application. Ambient temperature is the temperature of the surrounding environment and temperature of the disposable. In these construction applications, the disposable and the temperature of the environment are typically not substantially different. Sprayed adhesives take the form of a solid matrix formed as a result of the combined application adhesive fibers creating an overlapping distribution of threads or fibers on the disposable. Spray adhesive technology is used to make disposable articles by combining, e.g. a film with a woven or non-woven fabric with the adhesive arid forming a bond between the substrates or layers by pressure. Such conventional spray-on adhesives form typically a laminated adhesive bonding with the film sheet and the fabric layers.
  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
  • Accordingly, a wide variety of thermoplastic polymers are suitable for use in the invention. Such thermoplastic polymers are preferably water insensitive. The term “polymer” is used herein to indicate a copolymer, terpolymer, or higher order polymer, a vinyl polymer, an ethylene-based polymer, a block polymer or other polymer with a molecular weight and melt characteristics that can provide useful adhesive properties. At least one other comonomer can be polymerized with ethylene to make the polymer. Polymers of ethylene are those polymers having at least one comonomer selected from the group consisting of vinyl esters of a saturated carboxylic acid wherein the acid moiety has up to 4 carbon atoms, unsaturated mono- or dicarboxylic acids of 3 to 5 carbon atoms, a salt of the unsaturated acid, esters of the unsaturated acid derived from an alcohol having 1 to 8 carbon atoms, octene, hexene, and mixtures thereof. Polymers of ethylene such as ethylene-vinyl-acetate (EVA), ethylene-methyl acrylate (EMA) and ethylene n-butyl acrylate (EnBa); ethylene carbon dioxide, and mixtures thereof can be used.
  • Suitable ethylene/unsaturated carboxylic acid, salt and ester polymers include ethylene/vinyl acetate (EVA) ethylene/acrylic acid (EEA) and its ionomers; ethylene/methacrylic acid and its ionomers; ethylene/methyl acrylate (EMA); ethylene/ethyl acrylate; ethylene/n-butyl acrylate (EnBA); as well as various derivatives thereof that incorporate two or more comonomers.
  • A thermoplastic hot melt adhesive composition comprising a thermoplastic ethylene based polymer containing at least one comonomer. Examples include ethylene acrylic materials, ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) materials and others. Such adhesives can be prepared in combination with an appropriate high petroleum based tackifying material having a defined thermal aspect. The thermoplastic, typically non-tacky adhesive composition comprises a thermoplastic polymer. The polymer has a melt index grater than about 1000 grams-10 min−1, often greater than 2000 grams-10 min−1. The polymer preferably has a comonomer content, e.g., a vinyl acetate content of between 18 wt % to 30 wt % vinyl acetate in the copolymer. The balance of the copolymer typically comprises the ethylene monomer. An example of useful material typically is centered on an ethylene vinyl acetate polymer containing about 20±5 wt % vinyl acetate copolymer or an ethylene vinyl acetate material comprising about 27±5 wt % vinyl acetate comonomer. Other comonomers in the ethylene polymers preferably comprise methacrylate, vinyl acetate, N-butyl acrylate, other similar unsaturated monomers and mixtures of monomers thereof can be used. The polymer material used in the invention can be derived from a single polymeric raw material or source material or can be a blend of two or more polymer materials or source materials obtained from raw material manufacturers. The weight ratio of a second polymeric material to the first polymeric material used in the preparation of the adhesives of the invention can range from about 0.01 to about 10 parts by weight of the second polymeric material per each part by weight of the first polymeric material. Such blends can comprise a blend of an EVA with an ethylene methacrylate copolymer or a blend of an ethylene methacrylate copolymer with an ethylene n-butylacrylate copolymer or any variation thereof.
  • The adhesive composition of the invention can comprises at least one homogeneous ethylene α-olefin polymer which contains ethylene and at least one C3 to C16 α-olefin. Such ethylene α-olefin polymers are selected based on homogeneity, density and molecular weight distribution (Mw/Mn). Useful ethylene α-olefin polymers are characterized as having a narrow molecular weight distribution, less than 4, preferably less than 3, more preferably from 1 to 3, even more preferably from 1.25 to 2.5. The polymers are typically homogenous and random copolymers. Any monomer is randomly distributed within a given molecule and substantially all of the polymer molecules have the same ethylene/comonomer content. The homogeneous ethylene/α-olefin polymer comprises ethylene and at least one α-olefin monomer selected from the group consisting of an α-olefin, non-conjugated diene, and a cycloalkene such as propylene, isobutylene, 1-butene, 1-hexene, 4-methyl-1-pentene, 1-heptene, and 1-octene, cyclopentene, cyclohexene and cyclooctene, 1,4-hexadiene; 1,5-heptadiene; 4-vinyl cyclohexene; 1-allyl-4-isopropylidene cyclohexane; 3-allyl cyclopentene; 4-allyl cyclohexene; and 1-isopropenyl-4-butenylcyclohexene; dicyclopentadiene; alkenyl, alkylidene, cycloalkenyl, and cycloalkylidene norbornenes, such as 5-methylene-2-norbornene; 5-methylene-6-methyl-2-norbornene; 5-methylene-6,6-dimethyl-2-norbornene; 5-propenyl-2-norbornene; 5-(3-cyclopentenyl)-2-norbornene; 5-ethylidene-2-norbornene; 5-cyclohexylidene-2-norbornene; piperylene.
  • The molecular weight of the useful olefin polymer will be selected on the basis of the desired performance attributes of the adhesive formulation and can have a number average molecular weight of at least 800 grams/mole, preferably at least 1,300 and no more than 100,000 grams/mole. Ultra low molecular weight homogeneous ethylene α-olefin polymer are considered to have a number average molecular weight of less than about 11,000 g/mole. For adhesive applications, the homogeneous ethylene/α-olefin polymer typically has a melt index greater than about 800 g/10 min., more typically greater than about 900 g/10 min., preferably greater than about 950 g/10 min. The melt index inversely relates to the molten viscosity. The density of the ethylene α-olefin polymer will be selected on the basis of the desired performance attributes of the adhesive formulation. Typically however, the homogeneous ethylene/α-olefin polymer will have a density of at least 0.850 g/cm3, preferably at least 0.860 to 0.900 g/cm3, and more preferably about 0.860 0.890 g/cm3.
  • The homogeneous ethylene α-olefin polymer will typically be present in the adhesive of the invention in an amount greater than about 40 wt-%, preferably greater than about 50 wt-%, and more preferably greater than about 60 wt-%. When employing two or more homogeneous ethylene α-olefin polymer, the first and second polymer will differ from each other with respect to the type of monomer or the molecular weight or melt index, or the density, or the molecular weight distribution. Accordingly, the first and second polymer may differ in number average molecular weight by at least 5000, preferably at least 10,000, and more preferably at least 20,000. In addition or in the alternative, the first and second polymers may differ in density by at least 0.005 g/cm3, preferably by at least 0.01 g/cm3.
  • The adhesive can use about 0.1 to 10 wt. % of a block polymer to increase cohesive strength in the adhesive and increase peal strength after application. Block polymers useful include ABA structures, AB structures, (A-B)n radial polymers, as well as branched and grafted materials. The B block is typically isoprene, butadiene, hydrogenated butadiene, hydrogenated isoprene, etc. Commercial embodiments include the Kraton® block polymer materials, (Shell Chemical Company, Houston, Tex.), Septon® (SEEPS) materials for Kuraray Co., Ltd., Europrene® block polymer materials, Sol T polymer materials (EniChem, Houston, Tex.), Vector® block polymer materials (Exxon/Dexco, Houston, Tex.). The A block (styrene or vinyl) content of the polymer ranges from 0.1 wt-% to about 50 wt-%. Typically, the aromatic A block concentration ranges from about 5 wt-% to about 45 wt-% based on the polymer. The styrene content can be less than about 25 wt-%, more preferably less than about 20 wt-% and most preferably from about 5 wt-% to about 15 wt-% styrene with respect to the total weight of the block copolymer for certain formulations. When employed with a ethylene/α-olefin polymer having a relatively high melt index, preferably the block copolymer comprises a hydrogenated block copolymer. For this embodiment the block copolymer contributes significantly to the cohesive strength of the adhesive composition. The molecular weight of a block copolymer relates to its solution viscosity at 25° C., for a given weight of polymer in (toluene) solvent. The amount of block copolymer employed for determining the solution viscosity depends on the molecular weight. For the higher molecular weight block copolymers, the solution viscosity is typically expressed as a function of a 10 wt-% or 15 wt-% block copolymer solution, whereas for more conventional and lower molecular weight block copolymers, a 25 wt-% block copolymer solution is employed. For 10 wt-% or 15 wt-%, the solution viscosity of the block copolymer for use in the invention ranges from about 100 cP to about 3·103 cP at about 25° C. For a 25 wt-% block copolymer solution, the solution viscosity may range from about 102 to about 105 cP, preferably from about 100 to about 8·104 cP, more preferably from about 200 to about 3·104 and most preferably from about 200 to about 2·105 cP. For low viscosity adhesive compositions, preferably the solution viscosity of the block copolymer employed is less than 10·103 cP, more preferably less than about 5·103, even more preferably less than about 2.5·103 cP and most preferably less than about 2·103 cP. The block polymer is substantially hydrogenated in which the midblock is typically ethylene/butylene, ethylene/propylene, or mixtures thereof. Preferred block copolymers comprise substantially saturated materials having styrene endblocks and ethylene/butylene or ethylene/propylene midblocks and having a di-block content of less than about 70%, a di-block content of preferably less than about 50% and more preferably less than about 30%. The block copolymers useful herein preferably have a melt index of greater than about 20 grams/10 minutes, more preferably greater than about 30 g/10 min, even more preferably greater than about 50 g/10 min. and most preferably greater than about 60 g/10 min. The styrene content is preferably from about 10% to about 40% by weight of the block copolymer, more preferably from about 10% to about 35% by weight and most preferably from about 10% to about 30% by weight of the block copolymer. Other preferred Styrene-ethylene/propylene-styrene (hereinafter SEEPS) block copolymers are available from Kuraray Company, Ltd in Tokyo, Japan under the tradename of Septon®. and may also be utilized providing the block copolymer meets the diblock requirement. These block copolymers are useful from about 5 wt-% to about 30 wt-% ofthe adhesive. Kraton® G-1650, a linear styrene-ethylene/butylene-styrene block copolymer having a diblock content of 0%, an M.sub.N of about 113,000 and a styrene content of about 28%; and Septon® 4033 supplied by Kuraray, Japan, a linear styrene-ethylene/propylene-styrene block copolymer having a diblock content of 0%, an Mn of about 108,000 and a styrene content of about 30% by weight of the copolymer. The midblocks are preferably ethylene/butylene, ethylene/propylene or isoprene and are more preferably ethylene/butylene or ethylene/propylene. The styrene content is preferably between about 10% and about 40% by weight of the block copolymer, more preferably from about 10% to about 35% by weight, even more preferably from about 10% to about 30% by weight and most preferably from about 10% to about 25% by weight. The melt index of these block copolymers is preferably greater than about 5 g/10 min. and more preferably greater than about 10 g/10 min. Useful examples include Kraton® 1652 available from Shell Chemical Co., a 100% linear SEBS block copolymer having about 29% styrene and a melt index of about 10 g/10 min. These block copolymers are useful from about 5 wt-% to about 50 wt-% of the adhesive, preferably from about 10 wt-% to about 50 wt-% of the adhesive and more preferably from about 10 wt-% to about 40 wt-% of the adhesive.
  • The composition of the present invention is preferably made by first preparing the thermoplastic component by melting and blending all the thermoplastic ingredients.

(about 160 to about 180° F.) or about 74 to 77° C. (about 165 to 170° F.). The polymer or polymer blend is often used in embodiments of the invention in an amount of about 42 to 70 wt % and in a typical diaper or feminine disposable, it is used often in amounts that range from about 45 to about 65 wt % of the adhesive material.

  • Detailed Discussion of the Invention
  • The articles of the invention at a minimum comprise a film layer or a permeable layer adhesively joined with a substrate. The permeable layer can comprise a cellulosic tissue, a woven or non-woven fabric or other thin, flexible, porous or wettable sheet-like material. The tissue layer is a well known, typically loosely formed cellulosic sheet of high porosity or permeability. The fabric layer consists of a fluid permeable flexible material that can be made of either hydrophilic or hydrophobic fiber components.
  • Woven and non-woven webs comprising the fabric can comprise natural or synthetic fibers or mixtures thereof. Woven and non-woven materials are well known and their construction methods have been practiced for many years. Woven fabrics are typically manufactured in weaving machines forming an interlocking mesh of fibers forming the layer. Non-woven fabrics can be made through a dry-laid or wet-laid method in carding processes, air laying processes or spun bond processes to produce a web that is mechanically, chemically or thermally formed. The fabric layers for use in the compounds and articles of this invention typically have a basis weight in the range of about 10 to 25, preferably 14 to 18 grams per square yard, a minimum dry tensile strength of at least 800 grams per cm2 in the machine direction, and at least 200 grams per cm in a cross machine direction. Synthetic materials commonly used in forming the fabric top sheets include rayon, polyester, polypropylene, polyethylene, nylon and others.
  • The substrate materials that can be used in the manufacture of the disposable articles of the invention, in combination with the tissue or woven or non-woven fabric, comprises any typical substrate used in the manufacture of disposable articles including films, sheets, elastics, absorbents, cellulosic fluffs or fill, other tissue, woven or non-woven fabrics, etc.
  • Absorbent layers can be adhered to other substrates using the adhesives of the invention. Such absorbent layers can comprise cellulosic pulp or fluff. Such fluff layers are often formed and wrapped in tissue to provide mechanical integrity to the fluff which has little inherent integrity. Fluff is typically manufactured through formation of cellulosic fibers. However, other materials can be utilized to form high absorbent fluff or pulp layers.
  • Elastic bands or elements can be used in the manufacture of the disposable articles of this invention.
  • The film or sheet-like layer used in the invention comprises a flexible sheet-like or film substrate. Such films are typically manufactured from thermoplastic resins and take the form of a thin layer having a thickness of about 0.5 to 2.0 mils. Such films comprise polyethylene, polypropylene, ethylene-propylene copolymers, ethylene acrylate copolymers, ethylene vinyl acetate copolymers, polyvinyl chloride polymers, polyvinylidene chloride polymers, polyester polymers and others. Such films can be perforate or imperforate. In addition to the above materials used in the composite articles of the invention, a variety of other materials can be used, including other wrapping materials, deodorants, perfumes, dyes, and decorative appliques, which provide further absorbency, instructional legends, and pleasing appearance or smells.
  • In somewhat greater detail, the adhesives of the invention can be used in the manufacture of disposable articles including disposable diapers, incontinent devices or diapers, feminine pads, and disposable bed pads by adhering a porous layer to a substrate. The assembly operations that deserve note include adhering a porous non-woven layer to a back sheet and adhering a tissue layer to an absorbent core.
  • In the manufacture of absorbents for disposables, it is common to wrap loosely assembled fluff or batts of absorbent material within a tissue overwrap. In such manufacture, the tissue surrounds the absorbent material in an overlapping fashion such that the spray-on adhesive can be applied to the overlap area, causing the adhesive to penetrate the overlap to contact the underlying fluff or batt. The spray-on adhesive in contact with the tissue and absorbent material forms a strong mechanical bond which maintains the tissue wrap and provides mechanical support and integrity to the underlying fluff or absorbent batt material. As a result of using the manufacturing techniques of the invention, the tissue-covered absorbent material obtains substantial mechanical integrity from the adhesive and tissue structure. During use, the tissue and adhesive maintains the fluff or batt in place and prevents movement of the absorbent material resulting in an inappropriate segregation of absorbent material in a small portion of the absorbent article. Such mechanical integrity insures that the absorbent material stays in place to provide absorbency and protection.
  • In the manufacture of composite articles, the fluid permeable fabric top sheet is adhered to a film back sheet. An absorbent layer can be introduced into the space between the fabric layer and the back sheet. Typically a fluid in contact with the fabric layer passes through the fabric layer and is absorbed and held within the absorbent layer. The absorbent core typically comprises a highly porous, highly absorbent loosely contacted fluff, wrapped or encased within a tissue cover. The absorbent fluff typically has little mechanical integrity. The tissue wrap or cover, once adhered to the fluff, provides the absorbent layer with substantial dimensional integrity preventing the absorbent material from migrating or collecting in an inappropriate portion of the diaper. The tissue wrap ensures that the absorbent material remains evenly distributed within the envelope created by the back sheet and the fabric layer. The manufactured diaper or the components of the diaper can have elastic bands or segments adhesively attached to provide security for the wearer. such elastic bands create a snug fit at the waist and the leg apertures of the disposable articles. The adhesive compositions of the invention can be used to form bonds between the surfaces of the film materials between apertured films and non-apertured films, between tissue and non-woven or woven fabric layers, between absorbent fluff and tissue overwraps, and between elastic bands or elements and any structural component of the disposable diaper.
  • In construction methods for the preparation of the disposable articles of the invention, the adhesives are typically applied from spray heads that deliver the adhesive at elevated temperatures (typically above about 25° F. and typically in the range of 275-400° F.). The spray heads have apertures that range from about 0.01 to about 0.04 inch. Under the operating conditions of typical adhesive spray machines, the diameter of the sprayed adhesive fiber can range from the size of the aperture to as little as about 0.001 inches depending on operating conditions. Depending on the end use and final bond strength desired, the adhesive can be used at application amounts that range from 0.5 milligrams per square inch to as much as 10 milligrams per square inch. preferably, because of the unique properties of the adhesives of this invention, the adhesives can be used at an application amount of from about 0.5 milligrams per square inch to 5 milligrams per square inch. Most preferably, in disposable diaper construction the adhesive of the invention is used at an application rate of about I to about 4 milligrams per square inch.
  • During the manufacture of disposable articles using the adhesives of the invention, two modes of application are preferred. One mode of operation involves spraying the adhesive upon a fabric, such as a tissue, a woven or non-woven web, or other material having permeability to the adhesive. Such sprayed-on adhesive can penetrate the permeable tissue, non-woven or woven fiber, to cause the sheet to be embedded in the adhesive and adhered to the substrate such as an absorbent layer, back layer, or film. Alternatively, the adhesives of the invention can be directly applied to back sheet or film and the tissue, woven or non-woven fabric, or other material can be applied to the adhesive on the film. The adhesive retains sufficient liquidity that it can penetrate pores or apertures in the fabric to form a mechanical bond. In the manufacture of tissue fluff absorbent cores, the fluff is typically wrapped by tissue. the tissue layer can be wrapped around the fluff and can overlap. Adhesive can then be sprayed on the overlapping portion of tissue outerwrap, can penetrate the wrappings and adhere the tissue to the fluff ensuring that the fluff obtains dimensional stability from adherence to the outer wrap.
  • In somewhat greater detail, the sprayable, hot melt adhesive compositions of the invention typically comprise an effective amount of a base and an effective amount of a tackifying agent to form an effective adhesive that has the unique property that after spraying and cooling retains sufficient liquidity to penetrate a porous layer.

  • The hot melt adhesives of the invention are made in common hot melt manufacturing equipment. In the manufacture of the hot melt adhesives of the invention, the EVA copolymers typically added to a melt comprising either the tackifier or the plasticizer material or mixtures thereof. Such additions facilitate the blending of the EVA copolymer into a smooth, uniform mixture. In such a manufacturing regimen, either the tackifier or the plasticizer or a portion thereof is added to the manufacturing equipment under inert atmosphere and is heated and agitated until melted. The EVA copolymer is then added to the melt at a rate such that the mixture forms a uniform smooth blend within a reasonable period. Antioxidant materials used in the manufacture of the adhesive can be added to the melt prior to, with, or after the addition of the block copolymer. Once a smooth blend of the copolymer in conjunction with an adhesive component is formed, the balance of the components of the hot melt adhesives can be added at a convenient rate. Once the uniform blend of all the adhesive ingredients is formed, the adhesive can be drawn off and packaged in a convenient form including in drums, blocks, pillows, pellets, granules, etc.
