Published on 2010-07-23. Author : SpecialChem

Fairlawn, OH, USA -- OMNOVA Solutions, a leading innovator of emulsion polymers, specialty chemicals and performance films, will be exhibiting its broad portfolio of binders, coatings, adhesives and vinyl films at Labelexpo Americas 2010. The company will feature its water-based NovaCryl™ pressure sensitive adhesives (PSA), SunCryl® release coatings for paper and film tapes and labels, and GenFlo® styrene butadiene saturants for crepe paper, as well as pressure sensitive vinyl films for graphics applications.

Earlier this year, OMNOVA unveiled three new NovaCryl PSAs for the self-adhesive graphic vinyl films, tape and label markets. NovaCryl PS-P 180, NovaCryl PS-V 700 and NovaCryl PS-R 50 adhesives feature varying levels of adhesion, from permanent to ultra-removable, for a wide range of end uses including graphics, labeling and removable protective films. Each is free of alkyl phenol ethoxylate (APE) type surfactants, offering a more environmentally preferred profile for certain end use applications. Each also is available as a base polymer or a coater-ready formulation.

OMNOVA's water-based SunCryl release and primer coatings can be customized to meet the requirements of a variety of masking tapes, release liners and thermo-printing labels. The company recently introduced SunCryl 4338 primer coating polymer, an environmentally preferred product that can be formulated into primer coatings for paper-based silicone release liners. Consisting of approximately one-third renewable raw materials (excluding water), SunCryl 4338 has earned an OMNOVA E-CHEMISTRY designation for its strong environmental profile.

GenFlo saturants provide excellent binding strength for crepe paper masking tapes. These products also deliver superior durability for construction and painting applications, and first-class performance in high temperature processes, such as auto painting.

OMNOVA's performance films can be formulated for self-adhesive applications. These films feature solid color, woodgrain and abstract designs that can be customized to meet the needs of almost any end use. Specialty finishes are also available, including non-skid solutions for flooring and other horizontal surfaces.
