Micronax 241-01

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Micronax 241-01 is a water-based pressure sensitive adhesive that utilizes our proprietary microsphere technology. This ultra-removable, repositionable product offers good quick stick to a wide variety of substrates. Labels coated with Micronax 241-01 can be attached and re-attached repeatedly without loss of its initial quick stick and without ghosting (residual adhesive left behind). Labels can be easily removed from a variety of substrates without marking or damaging the surface.  Even delicate surfaces like newspaper will not be damaged when removing advertisement notes coated with Micronax. Micronax 241-01 can be used for protective masking tapes and paper, wall boarders and graphics, postal labels, retail labels, and other instances where a clean removable or repositionable behavior is needed.The development of performance properties is highly dependent upon the amount of adhesive applied. A typical coating weight of 10-13 g/m2 (6-8 lb/ream) is suggested as a starting point. Micronax 241-01 is designed for direct coating via Mayer rod or gravure methods. Transfer coating may not be appropriate for this technology. AGITATE AT MODERATE SPEED BEFORE USE. Micronax 241-01 is FDA compliant under 21CFR 175.105, 21CFR 176.170 and 21CFR 176.180.
