Constellation of New PSAs to Star at Labelexpo
Franklin Adhesives & Polymers is giving visitors to Labelexpo Americas 2010 three new reasons to stop by booth 1651 during the show this year: We are showcasing a trio of revolutionary new PSA technologies at the booth that offer coating, converting and packaging companies exciting new options in repositionable and permanent adhesives.
Making their debut at the show are Micronax microsphere repositionable adhesives, Acrynax acrylic polymer hot melt permanent PSAs and APE-free Covinax permanent PSAs.
Micronax Microspheres Open a World of Possibilities
Micronax Microsphere PSAs provide the highest degree of repositionability of any type of PSA on the market – and open untold possibilities for products that need to be removed and reapplied multiple times.
The secret behind microsphere adhesives is in the size of the particles, or spheres, in the product. Microspheres are tiny particles measuring between 10 and 250 microns in diameter. Although they are microscopic in size, these particles are much larger than the emulsion particles in conventional adhesives. The size difference has a dramatic impact on adhesive tack. By forming a discontinuous film, microsphere adhesives limit physical contact, resulting in low peel, removability and stable tack over time.
The ability to reposition products coated with Micronax adhesives make this unique product ideal for countless applications, ranging from product decorations, wall graphics, temporary signage and repositionable notes to arts and crafts and advertising pieces. Micronax microspheres also have been approved for FDA indirect food contact and can be screen-printed.
