Covinax 258-00 is a surfactant stabilized acrylic copolymer

Covinax 234-01

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Covinax 234-01 is an APE-free, formaldehyde-free high performance copolymer specifically designed for optically clear, moisture resistant removable pressure sensitive applications. This product has been formulated to adhere to multiple substrates. It provides smooth and clean removability with no adhesion build over time. Covinax 234-01 can be used for wine and beverage labels, window graphics, reseal food packaging, surface protection adhesives, and other label and tape applications. Covinax 234-01 provides the best water blush and water whitening resistance among aqueous adhesives. It has a good balance of peel and tack adhesion and offers excellent cohesive strength. In addition, the adhesive can be repositioned multiple times without loss of adhesion and will remain optically clear when exposed to UV and moisture.
