Acucote Inc: Adhesives
Acucote’s Performance Adhesive line including AC903, AC905, and AC908 is said to offer durability beyond traditional water-based systems, and can be applied to a wide variety of surfaces.
AC903 is designed for ultra chemical resistance and high-heat applications. It is resistant to common solvents such as gasoline, diesel fuel, motor oil and other petroleum distillates. AC903 is heat resistant for extended periods of time above 350 degrees F and short periods above 400 degrees F. AC905 is designed for ultra low-temperature applications and its unique design features increase tack and peel strength of lower temperatures.
Designed for use where plasticizer migration could be an issue, AC908 has specific adhesion to polyester-based powder-coated paints and can be used for surfaces that have a thin film of processing oil. AC908 is suitable for medium surface energy substrates and exhibits a high amount of edge ooze resistance. Polyester and vinyl face stocks and bleached kraft and clay coated supercalendered liners are recommended for this line. It is available in 26-in. master width x 2500-ft. and is slit to customer specifications.
