VAE Dispersion for Difficult-To-Bond Surfaces
- 6 Downloads
Wacker has developed the dispersion Vinnapas EP 8010 specifically for bonding various surfaces in the paper and packaging industry. Based on vinyl acetate-ethylene (VAE) copolymers, it reliably and permanently bonds challenging paper and cardboard surfaces, such as coated or painted paper, and polymeric film. According to the manufacturers, apart from its excellent adhesive strength, the new product is characterised by outstanding heat resistance, a very high setting speed and ease of machine processing. Moreover, it is manufactured without the use of alkylphenol ethoxylates (APEO), and its VAE basis makes supplementary plasticizers unnecessary. This dispersion is therefore ideal for formulating high-performance adhesives for demanding paper and packaging applications in which difficult-to-bond substrates have to be permanently joined.
The new dispersion will be unveiled at the World Adhesive & Sealant Conference (WAC) 2012, which will take place from 18 to 21 September in Paris, France.
