Article Type: New products From: Pigment & Resin Technology, Volume 40, Issue 6
OMNOVA Solutions’ specialty chemicals business today unveiled its new NovaCryl PS-R 30 pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) for film tape and label markets. NovaCryl PS-R 30 is a water-based acrylic polymer adhesive designed for ultra-removable label applications, including those used for storage identification, decals and window cling graphics, as well as protective films for glass, automotive components, electronics and displays. This product features excellent cling and electro-wetting characteristics, and delivers clean removability with no “ghosting.”
NovaCryl PS-R 30 is free of alkyl phenol ethoxylate type surfactants, offering a more environmentally preferred profile for certain end use applications. It is available as a base polymer or a coater-ready formulation, and is compatible with many wetting agents, defoamers and rheology modifiers. NovaCryl PS-R 30 is FDA 21 CFR, section 175.105 compliant for indirect food contact applications.
