Hotmelt Formulation help

Can you help with a Hotmelt formulation. I have been tasked with looking at options for manufacturing a product from a SIS/SBS high end waste stream that is currently going to landfill. It seems sad to to see such a valuable waste stream becoming pollution when it could be used for doing good. Through much investigation it looks like a perfect base for a UV Hotmelt or general purpose Hotmelt. The waste stream has the following composition. 50/50 SIS/SBS(34%/34%) Krayton coblock copolymers, 20% Polyoil, 5% Hexanediol diacrylate, 3% 1,6 Hexanediol dimethacrylate, 2.5% Benzil dimethyl Ketal , 1%Kerobit TBK and 0,005% uv Dye. I have started experimentation with rosin tackifiers but im at a loss where to go from there. Possible uses i believe could be in the PSA tape market. Formulation help and direction for possible product uses would be greatly appreciated. Kind Regards Helix Jones South Africa.
