Duracet 12 DB is a relatively high molecular weight adhesive. This product is designed to meet the requirements needed for heat sealing and laminating greaseproof papers for the assembly of microwave popcorn bags. Characteristics of this product include low foaming, resistance to vegetable oils and compatibility with many dyes. Duracet 12 DB can be diluted with water. This adhesive conforms compositionally with FDA Regulations 175.105, 176.170, and 176.180.
Dry films of Duracet 12 DB are hard, with a glossy, translucent appearance. Plasticizer resistance is good.
COMPOUNDING INFORMATION Duracet 12 DB may be thickened using high molecular weight polyvinyl alcohol solutions or conventional cellulosic thickeners. Solvent thickening is not particularly efficient, although solvents may be incorporated in order to enhance the specific adhesion by attacking a particular coating or film. Polar solvents, such as ketones, should be diluted prior to incorporation to prevent localized gel formation. Duracet 12 offers wide compatibility with a variety of conventional and proprietary plasticizers and will generally accept high plasticizer loadings without excessive loss of film tensile strength.
Duracet 12 DB conforms compositionally with FDA Regulation 175.105, 176.170 and 176.180.
