Eastman AQ™ Polyesters

Eastman AQ™ polymers are low-color, thermally stable polyesters that disperse in water without added treatment. They can be applied as hot melt adhesives which can be dispersed in water or can be initially dispersed in water and applied as a re-dissolvable waterborne adhesive. They are compatible with some of the commonly used tackifiers and plasticizers used in adhesive compounding and are well-suited for applications where adhesive removal after application is required, such as re-pulping of paper and plastic and glass recycling. They can also be used to improve the feel and properties of personal care products such as creams, lotions and shampoos, hairsprays, and water-based makeup products.
