ADCOTE 555

Adcote™ 555 is an isocyanate-terminated polyester urethane component of a two-component, high-application solids adhesive system. The use of Adcote 536B is required to achieve full cure properties.This adhesive system adheres to a variety of substrates with excellent heat and chemical resistance. Adcote 555/Adcote 536B is designed for laminating aluminum foil and a variety of polyester, polyolefin and coextruded films typically used in food, medical and industrial packaging applications.

Features & Benefits

Adcote™ 555/536B is suggested for optimum performance where slip modified films are used and applications requiring excellent heat and chemical resistance. Adcote 555/536B also offers the benefit of a low nip temperature requirement, especially useful when producing temperature sensitive constructions.
