In the past, these tapes were made with solvent acrylic adhesives on oriented polypropylene films, but the clear need for a water-based alternative to meet environmental commitments of tape manufacturers led Rohm and Haas to develop the new water-based acrylic adhesive.
Rohm and Haas says it carefully scrutinised adhesives, film and manufacturing practices to be certain that new Robond PS 2020 adhesive would meet requirements for clarity and, at the same time, ensure box-closing strength and dependability, even under extreme conditions of heat, moisture and cold. Robond PS 2020 adhesive is currently available to North American customers of Rohm and Haas.
