A new emulsion acrylic adhesive designed for pressure sensitive applications that require good adhesion to low energy surfaces (LSE) and water resistance is now available from the North American Dispersions Business of Momentive Specialty Chemicals.
Synthebond 7201 LSE utilizes proprietary emulsion technology to create a new polymer with superb low energy substrate wetting, excellent blush resistance and optical clarity, together with a strong balance of peel and shear properties, the company says. In addition, Synthebond 7201 LSE is alkylphenol ethoxylate-free.
Synthebond 7201 LSE’s formula creates strong adhesion to low energy surfaces without the use of tackifiers. The exclusion of tackifiers allows the adhesive to maintain its optical clarity and color stability, while also enabling its water resistance and high adhesion after prolonged exposure to water or high humidity. The adhesive can be easily customized and formulated to meet a variety of converting needs.
