Purethane™  water-based laminating adhesives

Purethane adhesives are waterborne urethane, acrylic and/or hybrid systems designed for dry bond laminating of flexible packaging materials. They are specifically formulated to provide excellent coefficient of friction (COF) stability, without the need to add an external slip additive package. Purethane adhesives have very low odor retention. They can be used either as a one-component or two-component systems for applications where moderate to high levels of moisture, temperature, and chemical resistance are required.

Application Information




Flexible Packaging
Purethane adhesives are used in a wide array of flexible packaging applications including snack foods, confectionary, fresh cut produce, and other specific applications where water base laminating adhesives have proven to be effective.
  • Low odor retention 
  • Moderate to high level of moisture, temperature and chemical resistance 
  • Excellent clarity, COF stability and UV stability 
  • Good adhesion to wide range of substrates 
  • No cell plugging, easy machinability/clean-up 
  • Good aggressive ingredient resistances and temperature resistance when used with C-CAT-104 crosslinker. 
  • C-CAT-104 crosslinker provides long pot-life and enables low or no material waste
  • Exceptional processing speeds.

Purethane adhesives are used in a wide array of label applications including bottle, can and other label, wrapper and tag applications where a 1 and 2 component water base laminating adhesive is deemed acceptable.
