For paper and packaging adhesives, the color, adhesion and resistance to aging are very important. Efficient bonding of substrates and surfaces together with high-speed applications, require an extremely well-balanced combination of open time and tack adhesion. Such adhesives have an important influence on stability and durability of the packaging.
Resins are frquently used to enable the adjustment of hot tack, the rheology and of open time. They also improve heat resistance, application rate and the resistance to water and chemicals.

NOVARES TK-resins offer very good compatibility with EVA and waxes in typical paper- and packaging formulations, and are available with light color and softening points between 90°C and 120°C.
