May 2, 2011 at 11:43 AM EDT

Columbus, Ohio (May 2, 2011) - A new emulsion acrylic adhesive designed for pressure sensitive applications that require excellent adhesion to LSE (low energy surfaces) and excellent water resistance is now available from the North American Dispersions Business of Momentive Specialty Chemicals.

SYNTHEBOND™ 7201 LSE utilizes proprietary emulsion technology to create a new polymer with superb low energy substrate wetting, excellent blush resistance and optical clarity, together with a strong balance of peel and shear properties.  In addition, SYNTHEBOND 7201 LSE is APEO (alkylphenol ethoxylate)-free

SYNTHEBOND 7201 LSE’s unique formula creates strong adhesion to low energy surfaces without the use of tackifiers.  The exclusion of tackifiers allows the adhesive to maintain its excellent optical clarity and color stability, while also enabling its water resistance and high adhesion after prolonged exposure to water or high humidity.  The adhesive can be easily customized and formulated to meet a variety of converting needs.
