Eastoflex™ amorphous polyolefins can also be used in a variety of applications from hot-melt adhesives, paper laminating, sealants and pressure-sensitive adhesives. They can also be used as waterproofing compounds for wire and cable-flooding, in road-marking compounds, and as asphalt modifiers for modified bitumen roofing membranes. Eastoflex™ APOs are popular for use in these and many other applications:

  • Roofing: Our Eastoflex™ APO materials provide many performance benefits for industrial and residential roofing products. Eastoflex™ APOs used in applications such as modified bitumen roofing, adhesives, and asphalt modifiers, make sure the roof you build stands up to the environment it’s made for.

  • Flooring and Carpet Construction: Eastoflex™ APOs can be used in adhesives, sealants and backing construction for both residential and commercial flooring and carpet products.

  • Adhesives and Sealants: High water resistance, low color, ease of processing, chemical inertness, creep and sag resistance, and good adhesion to many of the common substrates encountered in hot-melt sealant applications, make Eastoflex™ APOs preferable for use in applications like window sealants.

  • Wire and Cable: Eastoflex™ APOs can be used as in flooding compounds for wires and cables to prevent the intrusion of water into the cable.
