Franklin developed this vinyl acrylic copolymer for demanding environments, including inclement weather, that necessitate a durable label adhesive. It maintains a strong bond over a wide range of temperatures and extreme conditions – including extended submersion in the ocean. It has optimum balance of peel and shear for these applications and works on many surfaces, most notably, on corrugated box, stainless steel and most polymeric surfaces.
Although it performs well in tough environments, Covinax 383-19 is easy to use, the company says. It is coater-ready, resists cold flow and die cuts and converts well, giving dry edges to finished sheets and rolls.
