Technical Informations

Application Advice/Typical Applications

EMULTEX A 1602 is used to formulate Wood, paper, carton & construction adhesives. It makes a thermoplastic shiny and remoistable film that allows formulation of remoistable and thermosealable coatings for paper & carton. Could be used as supplied or modified in a formulation. Our technical department has made a number of tests which can serve as basis for formulations. For each new formulation, compatibility between the finished product and the substrate should naturally be checked

Shipping and Storage

The emulsion should be kept in the original containers or in stainless steel, aluminium or plastic tanks. Steel tanks with a corrosion-proof lining can also be used. The containers should be kept closed to prevent evaporation of the water and the formation of a skin on the surface. The product should not be exposed to frost or to temperatures exceeding 30°C. In these conditions, it can be kept for 6 months with no significant loss of its properties, but it cannot be guaranteed for longer.
The emulsion is supplied in bulk by road tank. Please consult us about delivery in containers.
