High Performance Copolymer Dispersions for Flexible Packaging

Kevin Lifsey

Presented by C. Guy, Michelman

Traditional ethylene acrylic acid copolymer dispersions require the presence of a primer on many non-polar substrates in order to achieve proper wet out and adhesion. This article will describe how new dispersion developments have evolved and discuss the high performance properties now delivered on a wide variety of substrates. Improvements in adhesion to non-polar substrates, faster production
speeds and lower heat seal temperatures are just a few of the developments explored in this paper.
