Eastman Chemical Co. has introduced Tacolyn 3509, a low-surface-tension (LST) resin dispersion for use in waterborne adhesives for tapes and labels. Tacolyn 3509 eliminates the need for surfactants or other wetting agents in waterborne adhesives, reducing formulating costs and improving product adhesion to an array of materials, including polyethylene and polypropylene. Solvent-free and environmentally friendly, Tacolyn 3509 resin dispersion improves the tack and peel properties of waterborne pressure-sensitive adhesives based on acrylic or SBR latexes.
