Antioxidants for Adhesives

Adhesives and their raw materials react like other organic materials with oxygen in a process called autoxidation. This guide offers you an extended overview of Antioxidants in the adhesives & sealant industry. You will be able to select the antioxidant you need from the different antioxidant families mentioned here. This guide will also take a look into antioxidant benefits and applications. You can also check how to test and determine the efficiency of the antioxidant(s) you have selected.

Water-based Adhesives

Water-based adhesives consist mainly of polyvinylacetate (PVA), polyacrylate, natural rubber, carboxylated-SBR, chloroprene rubber, polyurethane, etc.

Most water-based adhesives need to be stabilized to achieve and maintain good properties. Liquid additives allow easy preparation of emulsions and are therefore particularly well-suited for these applications.

Depending on the type of water-based adhesive applications, solid additives may outperform after heat aging:
