New class of Water based acrylic adhesives
Icap-sira chemicals and polymers SpA has developed a new class of Water based acrylic adhesives
characterized by a high solid content (more than 60%) and an aggressive adhesive power especially when
they are used at high coating weight on various substrates. These materials exhibit very good ageing
performance even at extreme conditions and they are APEO free. Due to all these valuable characteristics
Icap-Sira new dispersions are ideal products in a wide range of applications. Among them, they have found
immediate success in the very demanding roofing tapes/construction tapes application where good initial
tack and adhesion over a broad range of temperature is required, as well as ageing resistance in harsh
A range of several products has been developed, with various fine-tuned balance between adhesive and
cohesive properties, various grades of initial tack and for use in different temperature ranges, including a
high performing grade for low temperatures.
The products can be easily formulated with tackifiers (also available from Icap-Sira) and can be coated to
very high coating weights.
