Covinax 295-01

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Covinax 295-01 is a surfactant stabilized acrylic copolymer emulsion specifically designed for use in cold temperature label applications. Covinax 295-01 adheres well to PET face stocks and will bond to a variety of substrates. This adhesive is unique and will allow converted labels to stick to cold surfaces even when exposed to a thin layer of frost and/or
condensation.
