ADCOTE 102E

Adcote™ 102E 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 102E 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™ 102E adhesive provides optical clarity, high bond strength, and a high level of heat and chemical resistance. Good UV resistacne if using 9L10 co-reactant
