Wacker is presenting several novel polymeric binders to optimise the performance of adhesives and construction applications at the Middle East Coatings Show (MECS) currently underway in Dubai. The company has introduced two new vinyl acetate-ethylene copolymer (VAE) dispersions specifically developed for the needs of the regional adhesives industry.

For formulating water-based adhesives in demanding paper and packaging applications, Wacker is presenting the new VINNAPAS EP 6420. This all-purpose VAE binder offers best-in-class performance for nozzle applications, showing excellent running stability without skin formation. Additionally, it demonstrates a good adhesion/cohesion balance, outstanding cleanability, high setting speed and enhanced machine processing. VINNAPAS EP 6420 allows for formulations with a very broad range of viscosities due to its optimal viscosity and solids content, as well as its high sedimentation stability when diluted to low viscosities.

For difficult-to-bond substrates that require increasingly better adhesion, Wacker has developed the new VINNAPAS EP 701K. With its higher ethylene content and a rather low glass transition temperature, the VAE dispersion is an ideal base to bond even challenging surfaces. Because of its high bonding strength, quick setting speed and good machine runability, VINNAPAS EP 701K is perfectly suited for laminating plastic films to coated and uncoated paper. Typical applications include paper bags and boxes, book covers or PVC (polyvinyl chloride) film lamination for furniture. As no external plasticisers are necessary due to the chemical composition of VINNAPAS EP 701K, it also enables the formulation of adhesives with low migration potential.

The new VINNACEL 201 by Wacker is polymeric modifier specifically designed for the needs of the region Middle East and Africa. VINNAPAS EAF 7815 is a dispersion based on vinyl acetate, ethylene and acrylate. Further highlights are binders of the PRIMIS range for high-performing exterior coatings and SILRES BS additives for water-repellent, yet vapour-permeable masonry coatings. (KD)
