The Universal Selection Source: Adhesives Ingredients

Waterborne adhesives Channel
Waterborne adhesives (or water-based adhesives) are adhesives that are compounded with water as a diluent rather than a volatile organic solvent and could be considered as low VOC adhesives. The main polymers used to formulate water-based adhesives are styrene-butadiene, acrylic, polyvinyl acetate (PVAC) and vinyl acetate-ethylene (VAE).They have applications in all of the leading adhesive end-use markets for example Carpet backing, construction, packaging, and also in PSA labels and decals.
