2.1 Types of Hot Melt Adhesives

EVAR for hot melt adhesive is the grown points, which used for hot melt adhesive film for solar. EVAR film was grown in a high speed in 2015, keep 35% CAGR, leads EVA and EVAR technology adhesives grown at 17.13% CAGR, and production volume were 326.1M tons.

Styrenic block copolymers (SBC) were grown and keep stabilization. The application of label PSA for paper package in a high development speed, HMPSA for personal care was grown stabilized. HMPSA for tapes was fall into slow
