Celanese Emulsion Polymers Launches VAE Emulsion to Meet New Chinese Tobacco Adhesive Standard

Published on 2010-06-03. Author : SpecialChem

Shanghai, China -- Celanese Emulsion Polymers has announced the launch of a low odor vinyl acetate/ethylene (VAE) emulsion, Celvolit® 149LV, to meet the new national tobacco adhesives standard in China. Celvolit 149LV balances the new standard for residual monomer level with the high-performance characteristics for which Celanese is known in the tobacco industry.

"Celvolit 149LV is much lower than the new national standard for residual monomer levels in China while still offering adhesive producers good adhesion, wet tack and shear resistance properties," said Anna An, Celanese Emulsions marketing manager.

"We introduced Celvolit 149LV in response to the new standard as well as increasing demand in the cigarette industry for a very low odor emulsion which can be compounded into tipping and side-seam adhesives which will not interfere with the cigarette smell or taste," said An.

The new VAE emulsion boasts excellent rheology and has been tested in adhesives designed for high-speed tipping applications. The new emulsion can also be used in paper packaging adhesives for the tobacco industry where VAE emulsion have been the standard for many years due to their extremely low odor. The advanced technical control and formulation of the new emulsion results in a low odor, low VOC adhesive.

Celvolit 149LV will be available throughout the Asian region effective immediately.
