Water Based NeoCryl™ from DSM Offers Good Label Application on Bottles

Published on 2011-01-18. Author : SpecialChem

For a long time, adhesive formulators have been searching for synthetic resins for bottle labeling applications in order to relieve supply constraints, and performance variations of the traditional solution - casein. Now, new NeocrylTM BT-207 has closed the performance gap offering adhesive formulators an improved alternative to natural casein.

NeoCryl™ BT-207 offers excellent wet tack, glass adhesion and resolubility features - comparable to optimal casein performance. In addition, being a synthetic resin with consistent quality, NeoCryl™ BT-207 provides the adhesive manufacturer the benefit of robust production, eliminating the need for batch to batch adjustments as often is the case with today's solutions. NeoCryl™ BT-207 furthermore has very consistent and stable viscosity across the typical alkaline range of adhesive application and therefore requires less online viscosity adjustments during the production process. As a result of these product attributes, NeoCryl™ BT-207 works extremely well in high speed bottle labeling applications.

Furthermore, NeoCryl™ BT-207 is designed for cold-fill labeling as it has excellent hypercondensation resistance, which results in good label application to moist bottle surfaces. The bottles labeled with an adhesive based on NeoCryl™ BT-207 are also fully suitable for recycling purposes, as the resin is resoluble in caustic environments for easy label removal.

Due to its characteristics, NeoCryl™ BT-207 is ideally designed for high-end glass labeling applications, like cold-fill beer bottle labeling, and can also be used for other applications including the labeling of wine and champagne bottles as well as various jars.

NeoCryl™ BT-207 has been developed by DSM NeoResins+ in line with its existing sustainable solutions for the Adhesives industry. It is a new offering that has been added to the existing range of waterborne bottle labeling adhesives. The product is now available in the market via DSM and its distributors.
