Covinax 377-00 is a specialty emulsion polymer with very high shear performance

Covinax 377-00


Covinax 377-00 is a specialty emulsion polymer with very high shear performance and excellent wing-up resistance. Covinax 377-00 can be used in masking and can be used on vinyl films. Covinax 377-00 exhibits1.5 pli average peel adhesion from stainless steel and good heat/humidity resistance. It also shows >10,000 minutes of shear on a 1/2 x 1/2 inch bondline under 500g static load. Covinax 377-00 is FDA compliant under 21CFR 175.105, 21CFR 176.170 and 21CFR 176.180.
