Waterborne adhesives are usually fairly complex formulations of components that perform specialty functions. As you know very few waterborne polymers are used as adhesives without the addition of some modifying substance such as plasticizer, defoamer, or rheology modifiers. The selection of the actual ingredients and their concentrations will depen...
