Ashland High Performance Emulsion at Labelexpo
DUBLIN, Ohio—A new acrylic adhesive from Ashland Performance Materials, a commercial unit of Ashland Inc. will be introduced at Labelexpo Sept. 14 -16 in Chicago. Aroset™ 1177 adhesive is a high-performance emulsion for the coating and laminating industries.
“This latest product provides high adhesion to low energy surfaces while maintaining very high cohesive strength,” said Richard Gaughan, marketing manager, adhesives. “It gives our customers and potential future customers a sustainable approach to pressure sensitive adhesive label applications that also delivers excellent resistance to environmental influences, which can cause other adhesives to fail.”
The newest acrylic has excellent cohesion along with resistance to high humidity and remains tacky at low temperatures. Research shows that as Aroset 1177 adhesive ages, its performance stays the same, and it continues to provide high-quality cohesion and tack. Ashland’s Aroset 1177 adhesive works well in a broad range of applications that include high performance labels, decals, industrial tapes and over-laminating films.
