October 29, 2013

Eastman Versafix™ plasticizer is designed for water-based adhesives and reportedly can offer the optimal balance of functionality and value. Formulated to provide necessary viscosity control and maximized low-temperature efficacy to water-based adhesives, the plasticizer can help to give elasticity to adhesives.

As a plasticizer that leverages the strengths of benzoate esters, Versafix offers a versatile solution that reportedly does not require significant changes to the formulation process. It can be used in market applications such as paper and cardboard tube winding; woodworking and cabinetry; consumer craft and wood glue; box and carton assembly; bag manufacturing; envelopes and labels; and laminates.
