DUBLIN, Ohio -- Ashland Inc. (NYSE: ASH) has launched Aroset™ PS 6449, a solution-based acrylic pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) that delivers superior optical clarity to electronics applications. Aroset PS 6449 adhesive is acid free and thus reduces the likelihood of future corrosion. The product also demonstrates a good balance of adhesion and cohesion, and good temperature resistance. Ashland introduced the product at the PSTC Tape Summit conference, booth 50.

Aroset PS 6449 adhesive can be used in bonding multiple layers together in electronics applications, where optical clarity, durability, weatherability performance are required.

“Aroset PS 6449 adhesive can improve the quality and durability of electronics, such as mobile phones, tablets, notebook personal computers, and automotive monitors for entertainment and GPS systems,” said Zhaohui Sun, industry manager, pressure sensitive adhesives, Ashland. “Testing has shown it to provide unmatched optical clarity which is critical for consumer satisfaction with these devices.”

During the conference, the company also featured its Aroset 1295 and Aroset 2570 pressure sensitive adhesives.

“Aroset 1295 is an emulsion acrylic PSA with good balance of adhesion, cohesion, and chemical and plasticizer resistance,” said Cathy Boysko, sales director for pressure sensitive adhesives, Ashland.

“Aroset 1295 adhesive displays a less impactful environmental profile than traditional solvent-based PSAs, and it is well suited for graphics, industrial tape and transfer tape applications.”

Aroset™ 2570 is an emulsion acrylic PSA for applications such as masking, graphics, and resealable packaging that require removable adhesives.
