Packaging – PSA & Dry/Wet Lamination Adhesives

APEC's wide range of water-based acrylic PSA (pressure sensitive adhesive) and dry lamination adhesives meets our customers' industry-specific requirements, exhibiting optimized peel values and cohesion with a wide range of varying tack levels.
With its optimized adhesive properties, APEC's PSA can be applied to leather, foam, car upholstery, product assembly, protective/removable films, and masking tapes, distinguishing itself for its use on a wide variety of substrates such as paper (general and synthetic) and film (PE, PU foam, OPP, PVC).
In particular, ACROTEK® AP-2025 is a pure acrylic emulsion polymer designed for use in the manufacture of flexible film laminates for food packaging. ACROTEK® AP-2025 is one-part, formaldehyde-free, VOC-free, and eco-friendly all-acrylic adhesive that can be applied by conventional gravure cylinder coating techniques and is recommended for use in non-food applications where similar films and performance requirements apply.
Besides, our R&D Institute is upgrading PSA of special function that does not mitigate anti-static coating material's property in the process of film casting.
