TYPICAL FORMULATION INGREDIENTS AND PROPERTIES
APPLICABLE BASE POLYMER PROPERTIES
Acrylic emulsions offer a low cost adhesive with moderate performance properties. They are tremendously versatile due to the large number of different monomers and resins available. Acrylic waterborne laminating adhesives can provide bonds ranging from flexible and tough to hard and rigid depending on the formulation. Acrylic adhesives inherently have very good UV and oxidative stability and are generally preferred for outdoor applications.
The table above provides an example formulation for an acrylic latex emulsion adhesive that can be used on plasticized PVC floor tiles. The latex adhesive dries to a somewhat rubbery film, which has good resistance to water and good adhesion to most substrates including wet concrete surfaces.
