XlynX Materials launches BondLynx©, a class of adhesives named “molecular-glues”. The adhesive permanently adheres to difficult-to-bond polymers such as polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) to themselves, and other materials, through exceptionally strong chemical bonds.

Conventional adhesives typically take advantage of mechanical forces to hold materials together. BondLynx© employs bis-diazirine chemistry to create covalent chemical bonds between polymer chains, permanently crosslinking them together through strong carbon-carbon bonds.
