Dispersions & Resins

Adhesive raw materials for the shoe industry

We want our shoes to take us wherever we wish to go. Without falling apart in the process.

Footwear is as much an object of utility as it is an expression of the human self and aesthetic. But the defining characteristic of any shoe is its protective capability – and that includes the durability of the compound and its materials.

The adhesive components used in the production of footwear play an essential role in making sure that our shoes do not fall apart. Our water-based, highly customizable dispersions are the perfect bonding partner for most modern materials used by shoe manufacturers, be it for leather shafts, EVA / PVC soles, natural rubber or other material mixes. 

 

The ideal adhesive for shoes and footwear fulfills specific requirements:

  • Spotting tack
  • Green strength (> 1 N/mm)
  • End strength (> 5 N/mm)
  • Hydrolysis resistance
  • Resistance against elevated temperature and humidity
  • Color fastness
