Water Based Acrylic Adhesive

Water-based acrylic adhesives use water to separate their adhesive molecules. When the water evaporates, strong bonds are formed. One of the main advantages of water-based adhesives is that they are environmentally friendly due to their low volatile organic compound (VOC) content and are an economically viable alternative to solvent-based adhesives. Acrylic adhesive is the most popular packaging tape.

Hot Melt Adhesive

Hot melt adhesive is a thermoplastic adhesive, Hot melt tapes have a significantly higher, initial, adhesion in comparison to acrylic tape. They have a high bonding power (referred to as shear value) and tensile strength, with quick tack. A hot melt tape is ideal for applications involving machine-applied tapes, overstuffed cartons, or cartons with a high degree of recycled content.

Solvent Adhesive

Solvent-based adhesives are acrylic polymers in petroleum-based solvents. The advantage of solvent-based adhesives is their strength, toughness and durability over time. It is true that they provide superior shear and peel resistance than water-based adhesives, however, their solvents make them more expensive and are not environmentally friendly.
