Description

    CROSS REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATION
  • This application claims the benefit of U.S. Provisional Application No. 61/918,434, filed on Dec. 12, 2013, which is hereby incorporated by reference.
  • Disclosed is a general purpose hot melt adhesive material that can be applied to substrates such as cellulosic materials, film, fiber or nonwovens in the construction of articles. The adhesive composition is manufactured to obtain melt viscosity, cohesion and adhesion sufficient to assemble an article and obtain a mechanically stable product. The adhesive typically comprises a blend of polymer materials combined at proportions that obtain the desired and useful construction properties useful in the manufacture of articles. One embodiment is the hot melt adhesive. A second embodiment is an article manufactured using the construction properties and aspects of the hot melt adhesive.
  • Common hot melt adhesives are made by combining polymer and additive in a substantially uniform thermoplastic blend. Improved materials are needed for use in improved application equipment and in current and updated article constructions. A substantial need exists in providing new formulation combinations of materials and blending techniques that obtain improved adhesives.
  • The adhesive composition comprises a first amorphous α-olefin copolymer and a second polymer. The amorphous polymer comprises an amorphous or random polymer comprising butane and one or more an alpha olefin monomer such as ethylene, propene, pentene, octene etc. The second polymer comprises an amorphous material that can act as a diluents, viscosity modifier, extender or plasticizer.
  • As used herein “homopolymer” means a polymer resulting from the polymerization of a single monomer, i.e., a polymer consisting essentially of a single type of repeating unit.
  • As used herein, the term “copolymer(s)” refers to polymer(s) formed by the polymerization of at least two different monomers. For example, the term “copolymer” includes the copolymerization reaction product of a monomer such as propene or butane, preferably 1-butene and an α-olefin, such as for example, ethylene, 1-hexene or 1-octene.
  • As used herein, the term “propene copolymer” or “propylene copolymer” means a copolymer of greater than 40 or 50 wt. % or more propene and at least one monomer selected from the group including ethylene and a C4 to C20 α-olefin.
  • As used herein, the term “butane copolymer” means a polymer or n-butene (1-butene) or 2-butene and at least one monomer selected from the group C2-3 and C5-20 alpha olefins. Butene copolymers typically comprise a minimum amount at least about 40 or about 50 wt. % or more of a butane monomer such as 1-butene.
  • The term “amorphous” means the substantial absence of crystallinity, (i.e.) less than 5% and less than 1%. The term “heterophase” polymer means a polymer having an amorphous character and at least some substantial crystalline content (at least 5 wt. %, 10 wt. %, 20 wt. %, 40 wt. % or 50 wt. % crystalline content) that can provide cohesive strength in the cooled adhesive mass. The crystalline content can be in the form of stereoregular blocks or sequences.
  • The term “sequence or block” means a polymer portion of repeating monomer that is similar in composition, crystallinity or other aspect.
  • As used herein, the term “open time” means the amount of time elapsed between application of a molten hot melt adhesive composition to a first substrate, and the time when useful tackiness or wetting out of the adhesive on a substrate effectively ceases due to solidification of the adhesive composition. Open time is also referred to as “working time.”
  • As used herein, the term “substrate” means any item having at least a partially or fully solidified fiber, film or planar surface with which contact with a hot melt adhesive composition is intended. In some cases the same area, circle, bead, line filament or dot of hot melt adhesive composition is contacted with two or more substrates for the purpose of creating an adhesive bond there between. In some such cases the substrates are part of the same item: for example, folded film or folded non-woven, two sides of a cardboard sheet folded over, wherein the two sides are adhesively bonded together. In other such cases the substrates are part of different items: for example, a plastic film that is adhesively bonded to a second film, a non-woven or cardboard sheet. The substrates can be impermeable, permeable, porous or nonporous.
  • As used herein, the term “substantially” means generally the same or uniform but allowing for or having minor fluctuations from a defined property, definition, etc. For example, small measurable or immeasurable fluctuations in a measured property described herein, such as viscosity, melting point, etc. may result from human error or methodology precision. Other fluctuations are caused by inherent variations in the manufacturing process, thermal history of a formulation, and the like. The adhesive compositions of the nonetheless, would be said to be substantially having the property as reported.
  • As used herein, the term “major proportion” means that a material or monomer is used at greater than 50 wt. %. As used herein, the term “primary component” means that a material or monomer is the more common substance or has the higher concentration in the mixture or polymer compared to others but may not be as much as 50 wt. %.
  • The transitional phrase “consisting essentially of” limits the scope of a claim to the specified materials but includes those that do not materially affect the basic and novel characteristics of the claimed materials. These characteristics include open time, cohesive strength (tensile strength), peel strength and viscosity. Meaningful amounts of a third polymer or amounts of a tackifier materially affect the basic and novel characteristics of the claimed materials.
  • The adhesive material comprises a first polymer comprising a polyolefin copolymer comprising a substantially amorphous or randomly polymerized polymer material comprising 1-butene and a second amorphous polymer comprising a compatible amorphous liquid butane polymer such as a polyisobutylene polymer or similar material. The polyisobutylene polymer comprising a substantial proportion (greater than 50 mole % and often greater than 90 mole %) of an isobutylene monomer.
  • The first amorphous polymer comprises typically butane (e.g.) 1-butene and can be a copolymer or terpolymer that can contain ethylene, propene or a second C4-40 olefin polymer. These substantially amorphous low crystallinity polymers have less than 10% and preferably less than 5% crystalline character.
  • The amorphous polymer is a butane-based copolymer (the minimum amount is at least about 30 or 40 of 40 or 60 wt. % of 1-butene), which may also be referred to as a random butane-α-olefin copolymer. The butane copolymer includes one or more units, i.e., monomer units, derived from propene, one or more comonomer units derived from ethylene or α-olefins including from 4 to about 30 carbon atoms.
  • The first copolymer comprises about 30 mole %-about 75 mole %, preferably about 40 mole % to about 70 mole %, about 50 mole %-about 65 mole %, of units derived from butane. In addition to butene-derived units, the present copolymer contains from about 70 mole %-about 30 mole % to about 60 mole %-about 40 mole %, of units derived from preferably ethylene, propene or at least one C5 to 10 alpha-olefin monomer.
  • In one or more embodiments, the α-olefin comonomer units can also be derived from other monomers such as ethylene, 1-butene, 1-hexane, 4-methyl-1-pentene and/or 1-octene.
  • Exemplary alpha-olefins are selected from the group consisting of ethylene, butane-1, pentene-1,2-methylpentene-1,3methylbutene-1, hexane-1,3-methylhexene-1,4-methylpentene-1,3,3-dimethylbutene-1, heptene-1, hexene-1, methylhexene-1, dimethylpentene-1, trimethylbutene-1, ethylpentene-1, octene-1, methylpentene-1, dimethylhexene-1, trimethylpentene-1, ethylhexehe-1, methylethylpentene-1, diethylbutene-1, proplypentane-1, decene-1, methylnonene-1, nonene-1, dimethyloctene-1, trimethylheptene-1, ethyloctene-1, methylethylbutene-1, diethylhexene-1, dodecene-1, and hexadodecene-1.
  • In one of more embodiments, amorphous copolymer comprises about 30 mole %-about 73 mole %, preferably about 50 mole % to about 00 mole % or units derived from butane and from about 70 mole %-about 30 mole % to about 60 mole %-about 40 mole %, about 50 mole %-about 65 mole %, or units derived from at least one alpha-olefin monomer selected from ethylene, propene, 1-hexene or 1-octene. Small amounts of α-olefin monomer(s) can be used in the range of about 0.1 to 20 mole %. The amorphous polymer has a weight average molecular weight (Mw) of about 1,000 to about 25,000 or less, preferably about 2,000 to 20,000.
  • In one or more embodiments, first copolymer comprises about 30 mole %-about 70 mole %, preferably about 40 mole % to about 60 mole % of units derived from butane and from about 70 mole %-about 30 mole % to about 60 mole %-about 40 mole %, of units derived from propene, while small amount of α-olefin monomer(s) can be used in the range of about 0.1 to 20 mole %.
  • The amorphous polymer has a weight average molecular weight (Mw) of about 1,000 to about 50,000 or less, preferably about 5,000 to 45,000.
  • The amorphous copolymer has a viscosity of less than 10,000 mPa·s (1 centipoise [cps]=1 mPa·s), for example about 2000 to 8000 mPa·s, when measured by ASTM C3236 at 190° C. Melt Viscosity was determined according to ASTM D-3236, which is also referred to herein as “viscosity” and/or “Brookfield viscosity”.
  • Some examples of amorphous polyolefin include the Rextac polymers made by Huntsman including Rextac E-62, E-65. See, for example Sustic, U.S. Pat. No. 5,723,546 for a description of the polymers and which is expressly incorporated herein. Other useful amorphous polymers are sold as Vestoplast® and Eastoflex® materials.
  • The adhesive material comprises a second polymer that is compatible with the 1-butene component in the first copolymer. Such compatibility arises from a liquid amorphous material comprising at least one butene monomer (1-butene, cis and trans-2-butene, and isobutylene) isomer. Unlike conventional plasticizing oils such as white oils having a conventional hydrocarbon character, useful materials are sufficiently compatible and as a result improve add-on processability characteristics, reduce viscosity, maintain adhesive bond while improving cohesive properties. The term “compatible or compatibility” of a blend of polymers, as the term is used in this disclosure, means that (1) the materials blend into a uniform hot melt and (2) the cohesive strength of a mixture (70/30 to 50/50) by weight of the amorphous 1-butene polymer and the second amorphous polymer is maintained for construction purposes. Preferred materials comprise a compatible extender, diluents, and viscosity modifier such as a polyisobutylene polymer. The polymer can comprise major proportion of isobutylene units or can be represented as:

  • [—C(CH3)2—CH2—]n;
  • wherein n=15 to 75. Preferred materials such as a Polyisobutylene are viscous liquids with molecular weight of about 200-20,000 m, about 200-5,000 or about 500-3,000. The preferred liquid materials have a Saybolt Universal seconds (SUS) viscosity at 100° C. of about 100 to 20,000. The characteristic features of polyisobutylene are low gas permeability and high resistance to the action of acids, alkalis, and solutions of salts, as well as high dielectric indexes. They degrade gradually under the action of sunlight and ultraviolet rays (the addition of carbon black slows this process). In industry, polyisobutylene is produced by ionic (AlCl3 catalyzed) polymerization of the monomer at temperatures from −80° to −100° C.; they are processed using the ordinary equipment of the rubber industry. Polyisobutylene combines easily with natural or synthetic rubbers, polyethylene, polyvinyl chloride, and phenol-formaldehyde resins.
  • In some embodiments, the plasticizers include polypropylene, polybutene, hydrogenated polyisoprene, hydrogenated polybutadiene, polypiperylene, copolymers of piperylene and isoprene, and the like, having average molecular weights between about 350 and about 10,000. In other embodiments, the plasticizers include glyceryl esters of the usual fatty acids.
  • As noted above, embodiments or preferred compositions are made substantially free of an effective amount of a conventional tackifier material that can add any aspect of open time, substrate wetting or tack to the adhesive material.

Further tackifier can impart undesirable odor in disposable articles and can also act as carries of low molecular weight plasticizers (like process oils that are used in SBC based adhesives) that can weaken the polyethylene back sheet materials used in baby diapers. Back sheet integrity is becoming more important due to the downsizing of the polyethylene film thickness used in these articles. By the term “conventional tackifier resins”, those resins commonly available in the adhesive art and industry that are used in typical hot melt adhesives. Examples of conventional tackifing resins included in this range include an aliphatic hydrocarbon resins, aromatic modified aliphatic hydrocarbon resins, hydrogenated poly-cyclopentadiene resins, poly-cyclopentadiene resins, gum rosins, gun rosin esters, wood rosins, wood rosin esters, tall oil rosines, tall oil rosin esters, poly-terpene, aromatic modified poly-terpene, terpene-phenolic, aromatic modified hydrogenated poly-cyclopentadiene resins, hydrogenated aliphatic resins, hydrogenated aliphatic aromatic resins, hydrogenated terpene and modified terpene and hydrogenated rosin esters. Often in conventional formulations such resins are used in amounts that range from about 5 to about 65 wt. % often about 20 to 30 wt. %.

  • The hold melt adhesive compositions have melt rheology and thermal stability suitable for use with conventional hot melt adhesive application equipment. The blended components of the hot melt adhesive compositions have low melt viscosity at the application temperature, thereby facilitating flow of the compositions through a costing apparatus, e.g., coating die or nozzle, without resorting to the inclusion of solvents or extender oil into the composition. Melt viscosities of the hot melt adhesive compositions are between 1500 cP and 3500 cP or about 2000 cP to 3000 cP in mille Pascal-seconds or centipoise (cP0 using a Brookfield thermosel RVT viscometer using rotor number 27 at 176.66° C. (50 rpm, 350° F.). The hot melt adhesive compositions have a softening point (ASTM D 3461-97 Standard Test Method for Mettler Softening Point Methods) of about 80° C. to 140° C., in some embodiments about 115° C. to 130° C. Typical but non-limiting industrial applications or the hot melt adhesive compositions include sanitary disposable consumer articles, made of non-woven materials, films, micro-porous films etc. for example, diapers, feminine care pads, napkins, hospital surgical drapes and pads etc. that benefit from both the low temperature flexibility, heat resistance and the efficiency of end use in automated means of applying the hot melt adhesive compositions to various substrates.

The substrates that are adhesively bonded in such articles are formed from materials such as cardboard, paper, thermoplastics such as polyesters such as polyethylene terephthalate, polyamides such as nylons, or polypropylene, thermoset polymers, and combinations, blends, or layered composites thereof and include, in some embodiments, coatings of wax, acrylate polymers, or other materials; colorants, preservatives, stabilizers, processing lubricants, and the like as well as combinations of any of these materials. The substrates include solid, nonporous items and sheets as well as porous items and sheets, such as nonwoven fabrics, paper, cotton batting, stretchable and breathable polypropylene and polyethylene and copolymers and the like.
  • Another aspect are methods of manufacture employing the hot melt adhesive compositions. The method involves application of the molten compositions to a substrate, followed by contact of the adhesive composition with a second substrate within 0.1 second to 5 seconds after application of the adhesive composition to the first substrate, wherein the contacting results in an adhesive bond between the substrates.
  • Yet another aspect is an article of manufacture including the hot melt adhesive compositions, wherein the article includes at least two substrates adhesively bonded by an amount of a hot melt adhesive composition. Typical articles of manufacture include sanitary disposable consumer articles, for examples, diapers, feminine care pads, napkins, and the like articles such as those formed from a combination of low energy and higher energy materials, for example a pulp or cardboard having a polyethylene wrap and/or a polypropylene label, or a non-woven having a protective plastic top. In general, articles that are advantageously bonded using the hot melt adhesive compositions benefit from both the low temperature flexibility, heat resistance and the efficiency of end use in automated means of applying the adhesive compositions to substrates.
  • Hot melt adhesive compositions were formulated by melt blending as described below, wherein specific components and amounts of the components are shown below. In the articles manufactured using the adhesives, the articles can be manufactured by forming an adhesive bond between a polymer film and a fiber or fiber mass. The article can also comprise an adhesive bond formed between a polymer film and a nonwoven fabric. Additionally the article can be manufactured by forming an adhesive bond between a multi layer structure comprising the exterior layer of a polymer film and interior components comprising a fiber map or a nonwoven fabric.

The absorbent layer or structure formed within the absorbent article typically comprises a fiber mass pad or cellulosic or wood pulp for the purpose of substantially absorbing liquid or fluid materials released into the absorbent article. The fiber or fluff can comprise a cellulosic fiber, a synthetic fiber or mixtures thereof such as blends of wood fiber, cellulosic fiber, polyethylene fiber, polypropene fiber or other fiber materials often including a super absorbent material. Super or highly absorbent materials are used to increase the absorptive capacity of the absorbent article. Such materials are organic materials including modified natural gums and resins but often include synthetic polymer materials such as hydrogels. Carboxy-methyl Cellulose, alkaline metal salts of acrylic polymers, polyacrylamides, polyvinyl alcohol, polyethylene anhydrive polymers and copolymers, polyvinyl ether polymers and copolymers, hydroxyalkyl cellulose polymers and copolymers, polyvinyl sulfonic acid polymers and copolymers, polyacrylic polymers, polyvinyl-pyrrolidone polymers and copolymers can be used in the absorbent function.
  • Nonwoven fabric layers used in such disposal articles typically are generally planar structures comprising a bonded assembly or natural or synthetic fiber.
  • Such nonwoven materials are often made using a variety of techniques, including spun bonding, melt bonding, etc. Such nonwoven materials are often manufactured by randomly placing fibers or rovings in a substantially random pattern and are then thermally bonded using inherent bonding characteristics of the fibers or by bonding the fibers using resin materials applied to the fibers. Various polymers can be used to make nonwoven materials including poly olefin, polyesters, ethylene vinyl acetate polymers, ethylene acrylic acid polymers and others.
  • The exterior of the article often comprises a polymer film that is liquid impervious. In certain aspects exterior polymer films can be further modified using additional exterior layers to obtain a more cloth like or nonwoven character to the exterior polymer film. The exterior film typically comprises a single layer of a polymer film but can be a multi-layer film structure. Typical polymer sheet materials comprise high tensile strength polymers including polyesters, poly olefins or other thermoplastic sheet materials that can be formed into film layers. The polyolefin or polyester polymer materials are often formed into sheets and are treated to improve strength, flexibility and puncture resistance. Techniques including biaxial orientation, heat treatment or surface treatment can improve the film characteristics of the polymer films. Such polymer films often have a thickness that ranges from about ten to about one hundred microns.
  • One embodiment of an absorbent article that we have mentioned comprises the impervious and breathable polymer film and fabric, an absorbent layer pad or mat and a nonwoven interior layer. This three component structure is assembled using the adhesive that is applied using manufacturing techniques that adheres the nonwoven interior layer to the polymer film which holding the absorbent layer there between.
  • The adhesive compositions can be applied under melt conditions to a substrate as a hot melt adhesive or may be coated, applied or sprayed onto the polymer film nonwoven or absorbent pad.

  • All tests show adhesion and good bonding. The data from runs 2, 3, 4, 45, 9, 12, 15, 16, 17, 19 and 20 show values that all exceeded requirements for a successful construction manufacture.
  • These data indicate that the materials will provide excellent construction bonding in disposable absorbent articles. Note viscosity relates to the resistance to flow of the material under certain conditions. This distinctive property determines the flowability, degree of wetting, and penetration of the substrate by the molten polymer. It provides an indication of its processability and utility as a hot melt adhesive material.
  • Melt viscosity is generally directly related to a polymer molecular weight and is reported in millipascal-second (mP·s) or centipoises (cP) using a Brookfield DV-II+Pro (Rotation 10 rpm—Spindle # SC4-27) at the stated temperature.
  • Mettler softening point in degrees Centigrade or degrees Fahrenheit is typically measured using ASTM D3104. The amorphous nature of the poly olefin materials results in a melting point, which is not sharp or definite. Rather as the temperature increases, amorphous polymers gradually change from a solid to a soft and then to a liquid material. No clearly defined glass transition or melting temperature is often noted. This temperature testament that generally measure the precise temperature at which a disc of polymer sample, heated at as rate of 2° C. per minute of 10° F. per minute becomes soft enough to allow the test object, a steel ball (grams) drops through the sample. The softening point of a polymer reports in degrees Centigrade or degrees Fahrenheit is important because it typically indicates the polymer's heat resistance useful application temperatures and solidification points.
  • Peel test values were obtained by forming a laminate from a SMS non-woven (11.6 g-m−2) micro-porous polyethylene film (0.5 mil/0.127 micron) using lamination conditions as shown in Table 4. The laminate is cut into 1 inch/25.4 mm wide strips in the cross machine direction. Peel force was measured by separating the laminate at room temperature using a TMas pull tester at a rate of 20 in-sec−1/50.8 cm-sec−1 with the peek force averaged over a 15 period.
