Rovene 7008 is a non-plasticized aqueous milky white copolymer dispersion based on vinyl acetate and ethylene. Rovene 7008 forms a tough but still flexible film with the best adhesive properties for broad applications. It is a preferred raw material for the formulation of high-speed packaging adhesives with increased water stability, also especially because it shows best adhesive properties to difficult to bond substrates, such as lacquered surfaces and plastic films in the packaging and paper industry. Rovene 7008 is also an excellent base emulsion for floor, wall, or ceiling adhesives. It shows good resistance against aging, light or saponification. As a result, the durability of your products could be enhanced with usage of Rovene 7008 and suitable applicative industrial formulations. Rovene 7008 is a very friendly product for our environment. From the viewpoint of industrial applications, the compatibility of raw materials is considered important to manufacturers. Solutions of not only partly but also of fully hydrolyzed Polyvinyl Alcohols can be added without separation problems, an advantage for some applications where increased water stability is necessary. If advantageous, the emulsion can be modified with plasticizers showing low thickening response. Rovene 7008 is also used as base for EPI wood glue systems by blending with fully hydrolyzed Polyvinyl Alcohol.
RECOMMENDED APPLICATION S
The Rovene 7008 exhibits excellent mechanical stability, and shows good wet tack and fast setting speed, so it can be ideally applied by a variety of techniques, including roller blade, spray gun or extrusion. The excellent adhesion property to a wide variety of even difficult to bond materials used in the packaging industry makes the emulsion an ideal raw material for the paper and film industry. The increased water resistance should be stressed, and some specialties should be outlined in the following:
