DUBLIN, Ohio -- Ashland Performance Materials, a commercial unit of Ashland Inc., has introduced a new acrylic adhesive. Aroset™ 1177 adhesive is a high performance emulsion for the coating and laminating industries.

"This latest product provides high adhesion to low energy surfaces while maintaining very high cohesive strength," said Richard Gaughan, marketing manager, adhesives. "It also gives our customers and potential future customers a sustainable approach to pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) label applications that deliver excellent resistance to environmental influences that cause other adhesives to fail."

The newest acrylic has excellent cohesion along with resistance to high humidity and remains tacky at low temperatures. Research shows that as Aroset 1177 adhesive ages, its performance stays the same, and it continues to provide high quality cohesion and tack. Ashland's Aroset 1177 adhesive works well in a broad range of applications that include high performance labels, decals, industrial tapes and over-laminating films.
