The Universal Selection Source: Adhesives Ingredients

Solvent Borne Adhesives Channel
Solvent based adhesives are a mixture of ingredients (typically polymers) dissolved in a solvent (heptane, toluene, n-butyl acetate, acetone, methyl ethyl ketone, naphtha, mineral spirits and methylene chloride). Main types: Solvent borne Pressure Sensitive Adhesives (based on styrenic block copolymers, natural rubber, styrene-butadiene rubber & acrylic polymers), Solvent borne Non-Pressure sensitive Adhesives (based on SBR or butyl rubber) and Solvent borne Contact Adhesives (based on polychloroprene rubber).

Select Defoamers/ Anti-Foaming Agents for Adhesives

By Edward M. Petrie

Defoamers/ Anti-foaming Agents are primarily used in formulating waterborne adhesives, but they are also used in solvent-borne and solvent-free systems. Selection of right defoaming agent mainly depends on the distinct adhesive formulation, processes employed in formulation or conversion. Know more about various factors, in detail, while selecting and using anti-foaming agents depending on your formulation. You can get a review of the problems caused by foam formation, the mechanism and factors that cause foaming, and the chemical agents that can be used to hinder or eliminate the formation of foam in adhesive systems.
