Hot off the Presses: New Flex Line Lets You Print Adhesives In-House

IAs a printing company, you know that the more work you can do in-house, the more money you can make.

And now, you can print your own adhesives on your existing press, with our revolutionary line of Flex adhesives.

We developed our new Flex water-based adhesives to run right on your flexographic equipment. A full line of 11 permanent, removable, repositionable and specialty adhesives enable you to provide your customers the precise construction they seek, on all types of jobs: direct mailers, packaging, sheet labels, signage, beverage labels, repositionable notes, scrapbooking and much more.

The Flex line includes nine Covinax® adhesives for permanent, removable and specialty applications and two Micronax® microsphere adhesives for jobs that require repositionable adhesives, such as sticky notes and repositionable packaging. Micronax adhesives enable you to create unique pieces that can be lifted and re-applied over and over again.

You’ll also find that it’s easy to clean your equipment between runs. Because Flex products are water-based, they are easily cleaned up when still wet. Water-based formulation also renders them safe to use and safe for the environment, too.

Flex opens new opportunities for the printing industry and for you and your customers. If you would like to explore how simple it can be to Flex your capabilities, please contact us. We would be thrilled to show you how easily our Flex line can help you line up more business.

One of Our Best Features: ASI Cover Story on Micronax

Printers and coaters alike know the value of good coverage. So you’ll appreciate the kind of coverage Adhesives and Sealants Industry (ASI) magazine gave our new line of Micronax microsphere adhesives in its October 2010 issue.

ASI featured “Microsphere Adhesives Open a World of Possibilities” as its cover story. Mike Witte, who is the business manager, pressure sensitive adhesives, for Franklin Adhesives & Polymers, bylined the article, which discusses microsphere technology – the most repositionable adhesive developed to date – and our new line of Micronax microsphere adhesives.

As the article states, microsphere technology was developed in 1968 and subsequently appeared as a strip on the back of repositionable notepaper. But our new Micronax adhesives also are of note: By varying the sizes of the particles, or spheres, that give microsphere adhesives such high repositionability, we have made our Micronax microspheres more versatile – to fit more applications.

We also expanded the Micronax line with the addition of two Micronax adhesives in our new Flex line – enabling you to run highly repositionable adhesives on your flexographic equipment. With Flex, you can give your customers another sound reason to stick with your company.
