Water-based adhesives based on synthetic polymers

« Back to Glossary Index

Polyvinyl acetate (PVA) dispersions have beneficial handling and application properties for a wide range of applications on paper, both for paper-to-paper as well as for paper-to-plastic bonding.Dispersions based on acrylic resins (polymers) offer high initial bond strength. The softness of acrylic dispersions can be widely adapted, thereby creating both pressure sensitive as well as non-pressure sensitive adhesives.In addition to the dispersion form, acrylic polymers can also be produced as water-based solutions.
