PLEXTOL D 171 is an aqueous emulsion of a thermoplastic acrylic polymer.

Technical Informations

Application Advice/Typical Applications

PLEXTOL D 171 is preserved against bacterial and fungal attack. In the manufacture of finished products, the material has to be retreated, as usual, with suitable biocides to give enhanced preservation. PLEXTOL D 171 can be thickened by means of thickener emulsions based on PU to provide printing, nip-padding and coating compounds. PLEXTOL D 171 can be applied by the usual methods. By mixing PLEXTOL D 171 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. PLEXTOL D 171 is crosslinkable due to the presence of functionalized comonomeres. PLEXTOL D 171 has a instant-adhesiveness (Tack) and extremely high peeling values- particularly in high layer thicknesses. PLEXTOL D 171 is particularly suitable for critical substrates (PE) in outside applications. PLEXTOL D 171 shows a good resistance to ageing and excellent water resistance. Silicone coated papers are suitable for covering the self-adherent coatings. Applications PLEXTOL D 171 is applicable in many applications of pressure-sensitive adhesives. Examples are one-and double-sided tapes for the ranges construction, industry, packages and automotive industry. PLEXTOL D 171 shows special achievments in the range of cold adhesion. 

Shipping and Storage

This product is supplied in road tankers or in non-returnable plastic drums secured by a lid with clamping ring or in non-returnable palletized bulk containers (net volume 1.000 lt). The product must be protected from frost and exposure to direct sunlight. Storage temperatures between +5 °C and +30 °C are recommended. The product contains in-can preservation to protect it against microbiological attack during transportation. For protection against microbiological contamination during storage stringent plant hygiene is essential. Depending on the storage conditions addition of suitable preservatives may be necessary. Care must be taken that drums and containers are properly closed. During storage, shipping and handling contact with metal surfaces that are not corrosion protected must be avoided. When stored properly, the product has a shelf life of 12 months from the date of delivery.
