National Adhesives: Adhesive for clear film

National Adhesives has introduced ETI-MELT™ 396, a high-tack, light-color labeling adhesive suitable for creating a “no-label” look on clear films.

FILED IN:  Package Component  > Films

Provides good adhesion on wraparound labeling of glass, PVC, HDPE, and PET bottles with paper or poly labels in both pickup and overlay applications. Hot-melt adhesive works well on a variety of containers, including water, carbonated soft drinks, noncarbonated fruit and energy drinks, dairy products, jarred and bottled foods, and household products. Especially suited for cold-beverage containers where clear, water-white adhesive is required, the adhesive may also be used on all label stocks, substrates, and both cut & stack and roll-fed application equipment. Also said to provide good thermal stability for reduced char and maintenance.
