ADCOTE 102A

Adcote™ 102A adhesive is the polyester component of a two-component laminating adhesive which requires the use of an isocyanate coreactant. This polyester, in conjunction with various isocyanate terminated coreactants, functions as an adhesive for flexible packaging and industrial laminations. Adcote 102A adhesive adheres to a wide variety of substrates including cellophane, treated polyolefins, polyester, polyamide, aluminum foil, metallized and PVDC coated materials, and the treated heat sealable layers of co-extrusions.

Features & Benefits

Adcote™ 102A adhesive provides optical clarity, high bond strength, and a high level of heat and chemical resistance. Good UV resistance if using Coreactant 9L10.
