ADCOTE 563AC

Adcote™ 563AC 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 563AC adhesive adheres to a wide variety of substrates including cellophane, treated polyolefins, polyester, polyamide, aluminum foil, paper, metallized and PVDC-coated materials, and the treated heat-sealable layers of coextrusions.

The principal uses for Adcote 563AC adhesive with coreactant are in meat and cheese packaging, coffee pouches, condiment packaging, snack food laminations and metallized film laminations.
