This is a selection of the main UV-crosslinkable Acrylic Hotmelts for the pressure-sensitive adhesives sector. UV curable hotmelt is the best alternative to solvent-borne Acrylic PSA.
The fields of application cover a wide variety of technical uses, including tapes, labels and medical industries. While keeping the same performance of solvent-based products, it eliminates the need to evaporate, burn or recover the solvents at the coating line. The solvent is recovered and reused several times directly at our production plant, thus greatly reducing environmental impact and increasing sustainability.
Moreover, UV hotmelt adhesives offer an outstanding combination of versatile properties thanks to the easier adhesion and cohesion balance controlling,while maintaining appreciated properties of the solvent based products, like transparency, resistance to ageing and to water and chemical agents.
New Uv Hotmelt Plant
On February 2022 a new facility, completely dedicated to the production of UV curing Acrylic Hotmelts, was inaugurated at Icap-Sira site in Barberino di Mugello. The new evaporation plant is directly connected to the polymerisation reactors, thus eliminating the need for road transportation of the intermediate products.The new plant will contribute to satisfy the global growing demand for innovative and sustainable technologies.
