Dow Launches Solvent-Borne Adhesive

MIDLAND, MI | Dow Packaging and Specialty Plastics a business unit of DowDuPont Material Science, offers ADCOTE HP Solvent-Borne Adhesives, the latest addition to company’s existing line of ADCOTE Adhesives and Coatings. The new product is said to utilize the company’s adhesive experience to meet growing industry demand for enhanced sustainability, health, and food safety, durability, and flexible performance.

Reportedly providing enhanced production efficiency and regulatory compliance, the laminating adhesive also is said to improve cost-in-use and performance for various applications such as snack and ready-meals packaging, juice stand-up pouches, personal care packaging, sailcloth, and photovoltaic (PV) solar panels.

“Historically, converters have had to accept some tradeoffs when using solvent-borne adhesives, i.e., lower green bond, lower bond strength, lower temperature and product resistance,” says Kay Boakye-Yiadom, market manager for laminating adhesives, Dow Packaging and Specialty Plastics. “Now they can have it all. ADCOTE HP is a solvent-borne adhesive that provides health, food safety, and sustainability benefits without sacrificing performance.”

Sustainability benefits include a long pot life and product enables customers to run solvent-borne adhesives at 50% or more solids. They also are reported to achieve excellent green bond for foil and high slip films without decreasing bond performance over time.

Additionally, ADCOTE HP enhances temperature resistance, and passed both boil-in-bag and heat aging tests with no observed defects while maintaining bond performance following the tests, says company.
