More opportunities for pressure sensitive adhesive labels and tapes

Synthomer has built a unique polymer portfolio focused on the technically demanding applications of PSAs. With the recent addition of the Axilat product range following the acquisition of Hexion’s MDP business in 2016, our range of pure acrylic dispersions now offers many more new opportunities for our customers in the adhesive industry. Our waterborne low VOC PSA´s feature excellent adhesion onto low energy surfaces and provide optimum water resistance. Very low water whitening properties can be achieved for clear-on-clear filmic labels used for e.g. beverage bottles. Furthermore, we offer products for protective foils without residual leave after removal and show no staining or ghosting, as well as PSA’s with high plasticizer tolerance for graphic PVC films.

Our high solids dispersions provide improved drying and film forming properties and contribute to lower transportation costs thereby reducing our customers’ carbon footprint. Synthomer is committed to proactively work on future performance requirements and to support environmental friendly measures.
