DOW REICHHOLD: Tape Saturant Latex

July 1, 2008

This company has introduced DR1221 Tape Saturant, a specialty latex for use in high-performance masking tapes. The new latex delivers excellent tensile strength, water resistance and elongation properties for improved performance of tapes used in high-temperature applications.

According to test data that shows significant improvement in heat-aged properties compared to competitive saturants currently available, this new latex is an excellent choice for achieving a balanced set of performance properties in tapes used in demanding environments. These properties - including tensile strength and elongation performance - are especially important for applications such as automotive refinishing and electronic baking.

Dow Reichhold also markets DL219 latex and DL220 latex for a range of general-purpose tape and specialty paper applications.
