Valpac’s V-TAC™ tackifier dispersion products are used to add tack to adhesives based on acrylic, natural latex, polychloroprene and various other emulsion polymers. The dispersed resin tackifier in V-TAC products mixes easily with the base emulsion, and dries to form an intimate mixture of tackifier resin and elastomer.
The final properties of the adhesive formulation arise from both the chosen polymer dispersion and the type and concentration V-TAC.
The emulsifiers used to form the V-TAC™ tackifier dispersion are what determine their compatibility with various base polymers, process ability on coating equipment, and shelf-life.
The V-TAC Series of dispersion products from Valpac provides a range of tackifier dispersions to meet a wide variety of needs and performance requirements.
