Why should you view this course?

Establishing a balance between performance of your water-based adhesives (optimal flow, faster drying, high converting speed...) & costs is a tough task! One of the winning cost-saving strategies is: lesser ingredients = lower formulation costs, but what about the performance? Use of multi-purpose rheology modifiers (that do more than adjusting viscosity) holds the answer! Join the course to:

  • Meet specific rheological properties in your WB adhesives (for tapes & labels, laminating, spray...) by making the right selection from the constantly evolving offering of rheology modifiers

  • Achieve more with lesser ingredients by understanding the potential value(reduction of coating defects, drying time, effect on adhesion...) of using the correct rheology modifier(ASEs, HASEs, HEURs...)

  • Reduce revision and product development time to save costs by learning formulation principles, guidelines & best practices from a seasoned expert

Excellent ! It gave a lot of information- starting at a good level (reviewing basics) and then going into more technical and applied information.

Anna M. , from Saint-Gobain

EXCELLENT ! I learned about how viscosity control might affect properties in use and during coating !

Ian V. , from Teknek

Very good! It gave a good overview of the types of RM.
