NeoCryl™ BT-207 is a new waterborne acrylic resin for bottle labeling adhesive applications available from DSM Coating Resins.
NeoCryl™ BT-207 is a new
waterborne acrylic resin for bottle labeling adhesive applications available
from DSM Coating Resins. This resin is especially designed for adhesives to be
used in high-speed and cold-fill bottle labeling.
For a long time, adhesive formulators have been searching for synthetic resins
for bottle labeling applications in order to relieve supply constraints and
performance variations of the traditional solution – casein. Neocryl BT-207 has
closed the performance gap, offering adhesive formulators an improved
alternative to natural casein.
NeoCryl BT-207 offers excellent wet tack, glass adhesion and resolubility
features – comparable to optimal casein performance. In addition, being a
synthetic resin with consistent quality, it provides the adhesive manufacturer
the benefit of robust production, eliminating the need for batch-to-batch adjustments
as often is the case with today’s solutions. NeoCryl BT-207 has very consistent
and stable viscosity across the typical alkaline range of adhesive application
and therefore requires less online viscosity adjustments during the production
process. As a result of these product attributes, it works extremely well in
high-speed bottle labeling applications.
Furthermore, NeoCryl BT-207 is designed for cold-fill labeling as it has
excellent hypercondensation resistance, which results in good label application
to moist bottle surfaces. The bottles labeled with an adhesive based on NeoCryl
BT-207 are also fully suitable for recycling purposes, as the resin is
resoluble in caustic environments for easy label removal. Due to its
characteristics, NeoCryl BT-207 is ideally designed for high-end glass labeling
applications, like cold-fill beer bottle labeling, and can also be used for
other applications including the labeling of wine and champagne bottles as well
as various jars.
NeoCryl BT-207 has been developed by DSM in line with its existing sustainable
solutions for the adhesives industry. It is a new offering that has been added to
the existing range of waterborne bottle labeling adhesives. The product is now
available in the market via DSM and its distributors.
