PLEXTOL D 224 is an aqueous emulsion of a thermoplastic acrylic polymer.

Technical Informations

Application Advice/Typical Applications

PLEXTOL D 224 is protected against bacterial attack during storage. In the manufacture of finished products, the material has to be re-treated, as usual, with suitable agents to give enhanced preservation. Film properties Evaporation of the water above the minimum film-forming temperature leaves a clear, colourless and hydrophobic film, which is very soft, extremely tacky at room temperature and very slightly water-sensitive. The film is insoluble in water and partly soluble in organic solvents. Instruction for use - PLEXTOL D 224 can be diluted with water to provide liquors of any desired concentration. - PLEXTOL D 224 can be thickened by means of thickener emulsions (e. g.ROHAGIT SD 15) and cellulose or starch derivatives to provide printing, nip-padding and coating compounds. - PLEXTOL D 224 can be applied by the usual methods such as spraying, impregnating, printing, padding and coating. - By mixing PLEXTOL D 224 with other emulsions from the PLEXTOL range, the film properties of the former can be influenced within wide limits and thus adapted to the intended application. - Silicone coated papers are suitable for covering the self-adherent coatings. Applications - PLEXTOL D 224 can be used to produce self-adherent coatings on a variety of materials such as plastic sheeting, paper, textiles, sheet metal, glass, etc. - PLEXTOL D 224 can be used as a tackifier with hydrophobic character.
