ADCOTE 1544H

Adcote™ 1544H is a waterborne primer designed for extrusion coating applications on cellulosic substrates. Adhesion is improved between paper and paperboard and polyethylene board extrudates. Adcote 1544H may be used on smooth finished calandered or on coated paper. Adhesion is improved even with coating weights as low as 3-5 lbs/ream of polyethylene. Use of Adcote 1544H primer eliminates bond variations due to changes in paper surface. Optimum performance is obtained when the extrudate is fully oxidized (605 °F for polyethylene). Satisfactory performance for some applications is obtained with lower extrudate temperatures (580-600 °F).
