Waterborne tackifier resin dispersions are commonly used for pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) label, decal, or tape applications based on acrylic emulsion polymers or various types of natural or synthetic rubber latex. The major uses are general-purpose permanent, removable, deep freeze, wine bottle, and wash-off applications. To improve adhesion and to make the PSA bond on a variety of substrates, suitable waterborne tackifier resins are added.Eastman's waterborne tackifier resin dispersions • Improve specific adhesion especially to polyolefinic and paper substrates • Improve flow and wetting out properties of the adhesives • Provide an optimum balance between tack, adhesion, and cohesion
