Technology Marketing SummaryThe invention relates to the stabilization of latex polymer emulsions with soy proteins, and to adhesives formed from the protein-stabilized latex emulsions.DescriptionThis technology is a method of forming a latex emulsion from a mix of monomers, water, and soy protein.  The use of soy protein as the stabilizer improves the thermal stability, reduced moisture sensitivity, and allows for crosslinking.  The resulting emulsion has strong adhesion onto wood, plastics including low surface energy plastics, and metals.

Benefits• Good thermal stability
• Improved adhesion to wood
• Good adhesion to low surface energy plastics
• Improved water resistance
• Cross-linkable
Applications and Industries• Packaging adhesives
• Wood adhesives

PROTEIN STABILIZED LATEX POLYMER EMULSIONS, METHODS OF MAKING, AND ADHESIVES CONTAINING SUCH EMULSIONS
A method of forming a stable latex polymer emulsion is provided which includes mixing one or more monomers including polymerizable acid monomers, esters, and unsaturated monomers with water and a soy protein. The emulsion is then polymerized and may be formed into adhesive compositions having improved water resistance and mechanical strength.
