Water-Based Resin (white glues) Adhesives

Considered the workhorse of the adhesive industry, waterborne glue (homopolymers, copolymers, latex, acrylic and PVOH) are economical and versatile. These glues can be formulated to adhere to a multitude of surfaces such as clay coated, SBS and UV coated papers, films and foils. They can be fast setting and provide very strong bonds. Typical applications include folding carton industry, product assembly, packaging, wood working, tube winding, edge protector, credit card and mailers.

Application Temperatures: Room temperature
Viscosities (@75°F): 80cps – 6000cps
Set speeds: Fast-Slow
Open time: Short-Long
Form: Liquid
Packaging: Totes, drums, pails

Cohesive (Rubber Latex) Adhesives

Bond tech is quickly becoming an industry leader in the cohesive industry. Substrates coated with cohesive will only bond to other substrates coated with the same adhesive. Mating of the two surfaces occurs only after the coated adhesive has dried.

Typical applications include self-sealing envelopes, wrappers, protective packaging, bandages, money wraps, films, foils, papers and general product assembly.

Application Temperatures: Room temperature
Viscosities (@75°F): 80cps – 6000cps
Set speeds: NA
Open time: NA
Form: Liquid
Packaging: Totes, drums, pails

Water-based Vegetable (Dextrin) Adhesives

Natural polymers (starches) are used to make some of the oldest types of adhesives in existence today. They are water soluble and include dextrins and pastes. These glues are a lower cost alternative to resins. Common applications include product assembly (laminating).

Application Temperatures: Room temperature
Viscosities (@75°F): 900cps – 6000cps
Set speeds: Slow
Open time: Med-Long
Form: Liquid
Packaging: Totes, drums, pails

Water-based Protein Adhesives

Protein colloid adhesives (animal glues) have been around for over 4000 years. They are often used in bookbinding, rigid set-up paper boxes and packaging.

Application Temperatures: 150°F
Viscosities (@350°F): 1000cps – 9000cps
Set speeds: Medium
Open time: Med-Long
Form: Liquid, solid
Packaging: 50LB/22.7KG Boxes, drums, pails
