Mallard Creek Polymers Develops new APEO free PSA Pure Acrylic

Sep 3, 2020 8:00:00 AM

Mallard Creek Polymers, LLC. (MCP) has continued to increase its investment in the adhesives market and APEO free emulsion polymers.  The company added an Applications R&D expert in late 2019 and has leveraged the Ecronova acquisition to develop Rovene® 6592 for pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) applications. In early 2018, MCP completed the acquisition of the Ecronova Polymers GmbH technology and created a new company, MCP Europe GmbH. The technology acquired demonstrates very small particle size, unique polymerization techniques to adjust particle morphology, ambient cure crosslinking technology and APEO free stabilization techniques. Rovene 6592 is a direct result of all the company’s investments in technology made over the last ten years, starting with Dow Reichhold Specialty Latex, when the recipe for Rovene 97982 was acquired.
