Avery Dennison releases new solvent-free adhesive


Avery Dennison has expanded its media line with a new solvent-free iA Tec adhesive, which features improvements to conventional emulsion adhesives – to its 777 Cast Film and MACal 9300 Pro products. Avery Dennison 777 Cast Film and Mactac MACal 9300 PRO are now available with the new solvent-free adhesive. The company says the new sustainable adhesive offers longer dimensional stability and best-in-class weeding. It says adhesion is equivalent to solvent-based products (20 minutes and 24 hours), and the improved stability of iA Tech reduces the potential for ooze, so allows more time between cutting & weeding. This more reliable water-dispersed adhesive now gives users much better flexibility, with more time to manage projects, said an official. There are several improvements to conventional emulsion adhesives, such as temperature resistance, transparency and whitening properties that match solvent-based alternatives.
