WACKER at MECS 2017: Introduces Polymeric Binders for Adhesives

Published on 2017-03-15. Author : SpecialChem

At the Middle East Coatings Show (MECS), WACKER has announced that it is presenting several novel polymeric binders to optimize the performance of adhesives and construction applications.

Novel Polymeric Binders


For formulating water-based adhesives in demanding paper and packaging applications, WACKER is presenting the new VINNAPAS® EP 6420.

The new VINNAPAS® EP 6420 offers best-in-class
performance for nozzle applications, showing
excellent running stability without skin formation
  • It is an all-purpose VAE binder
  • Offers best-in-class performance for nozzle applications
  • Shows excellent running stability without skin formation
  • Demonstrates a good adhesion/cohesion balance, outstanding cleanability, high setting speed and enhanced machine processing

VINNAPAS® EP 6420 allows for formulations with a very broad range of viscosities due to its optimal viscosity and solids content, as well as its high sedimentation stability when diluted to low viscosities.


For difficult-to-bond substrates that require increasingly better adhesion, WACKER has developed the new VINNAPAS® EP 701K.

  • It has higher ethylene content and a rather low glass transition temperature (Tg -10 °C)
  • Ideal base to bond challenging surfaces
  • It has high bonding strength, quick setting speed and good machine runability
  • Perfectly suited for laminating plastic films to coated and uncoated paper

Typical applications of VINNAPAS® EP 701K include paper bags and boxes, book covers or PVC (polyvinyl chloride) film lamination for furniture. The chemical composition of VINNAPAS® EP 701K enables the formulation of adhesives with low migration potential.
Caulk and sealant applications based on
the new dispersion VINNAPAS® EAF 7815
show excellent workability


The new VINNACEL® 201 is polymeric modifier specifically designed for the needs of the region Middle East and Africa.

  • It is an easy-to-use solution to professionally modify dry-mix mortars with one single additive to improve the workability 
  • The product significantly reduces the water absorption, especially in exterior applications
  • In plasters, tile grouts or skim coats, the powder offers protection against salt formation, efflorescence and dirt pick-up
  • Further notable are its enhanced bond, compressive and flexural strength. Thus, mortars can be easily and efficiently improved for higher building and living quality 

The New VINNAPAS® EAF 7815

  • It is a dispersion based on vinyl acetate, ethylene and acrylate
  • The product is an ideal binder for diverse caulks and sealants applications, such as sealing joints on windows, staircases or doors, cracks in walls, or HVAC 
  • Offers a good crack resistance, high elongation and bonding strength, and excellent adhesion to various substrates, especially on concrete and PVC
  • Enables the formulation of paintable and even fire-retardant caulks and sealants
  • It has excellent workability, reduced odor and cost-in-use advantages
