Properties of six hot melt adhesives - five of which are based on ethylene-vinyl acetate copolyers and one of which is based on amorphous silica - are described. The author presents detailed information on experimental procedure and results. A quantitative mini-computer controlled thermomechanical method is offered for the quality control of hot melt adhesives. By phase analysis incoming materials can be identified and important quality parameters can be derived as the ratio of the plastic to elastic moduli in the working temperature range, the lowest and highest transition temperature, and adhesion to various substrates.
