Innovation opening up access to new applications and industry
Technology advancements across several self-adhesive sectors are driving demand
for pressure sensitive solutions suitable for challenging paper and film label
applications and industrial aftermarket screen protection. To help customers
address this trend, Dow is presenting at LabelExpo:
The latest additions to the Dow
ROBOND™ acrylic pressure-sensitive adhesives portfolio suitable for
challenging labelling applications such as beverage, personal care or pharma:
ROBOND™ PS-7860 high solids acrylic adhesive polymer and ROBOND™ PS-7890
ready-to-coat adhesive for gravure coating of multipurpose paper labels, as
well as ROBOND™ PS-7735 wide temperature range label adhesive , the latter
being introduced globally at LabelExpo 2017. These solutions offer: excellent
adhesion on a broad variety of substrates; superior water whitening resistance;
high transparency, suitable for a "no label" look; and improved
processing technology and application speed.
Silicone pressure sensitive
adhesives, such as Dow Corning® 7657 Adhesive, Dow
Corning® 7667 Adhesive, Dow Corning® 7645 Adhesive, and
Dow Corning® 7647 Adhesive, for superior optical clear adhesion
properties for touch screens and other electronic devices.
Innovation driven by cost control
Label stock producers and converters operate in an increasingly competitive
market, facing material and processing cost pressure; a mature market in which
value added products bring a competitive edge. Addressing this trend, Dow is
showcasing at LabelExpo:
High performance release coatings solutions, such as Syl-Off® SL 181
Coating and Syl-Off® SL 585 Coating, using flat release profile
technologies to address the growing demand for ever increasing label dispensing
Syl-Off® Advantage Series cross-linkers, such as Syl-Off® SL
11 and Syl-Off® SL 12, offering manufacturers an opportunity to reduce
platinum dependency, bringing cost benefits without impacting performance.
The Syl-Off® range of platinum catalyzed emulsion systems, such as
Syl-Off® EM 7975 Catalyst Emulsion and Syl-Off® EM 7990 Emulsion
Coating, enabling coating of thinner and less refined papers.
Innovation for enhanced sustainability
Converters and manufacturers worldwide are looking for ways to reduce material
waste to improve the footprint of the end products.
Dow solutions for enhanced sustainability on display at LabelExpo include
advanced solventless technologies, such as the Dow Corning® 2013
Adhesive for specialty pressure sensitive applications.
Dow Corning® 2013 Adhesive is a solvent-free silicone pressure
sensitive adhesive that, when used with Syl-Off® 4000 catalyst, offers
the ability to prepare pressure sensitive constructions at low curing
Dow experts are on hand at the show to discuss how Dow’s full-service
portfolio for the pressure sensitive industry fulfills the present and future
needs of customers and key global and regional industry players.
