Case Study: Low Surface Energy Adhesive for Product Construction Customization

Problem:

A customer required a very aggressive adhesive for labeling a low surface energy substrate. The labels were kiss cut by the customer and the matrix was stripped before rewinding. Adhesive ooze, as a result of wind tension, roll age, etc., caused some labels to transfer to the back side of the liner when the roll was unwound.

Solution:

Ameri-Cal introduced the V-501 adhesive, tuned its thickness for the special demands of the application, and chose a release liner with a reverse-side protective coating designed to prevent adhesive picking.  This unique low surface energy adhesive customization resolved processing problems and reduced overall cost.
