OMNOVA Solutions announced the launch of SUNCRYL®HP98 water-based release coating polymer at the 2016 Tape Summit held by the Pressure Sensitive Tape Council (PSTC) in Orlando, Fla. Designed for use in paper- and film-based tape and label applications, SUNCRYL HP98 delivers excellent anti-aging properties, clarity, water-resistance, and low-temperature cure without the use of solvents, silicone, fluorochemicals, or APEs.
“The introduction of SUNCRYL HP98 release coating polymer provides the Tape and Label industry with a water-based option that delivers great performance in an environmentally-preferred formulation,” said Tom Hartle, General Manager, Specialty Coatings & Ingredients at OMNOVA. “SUNCRYL HP98 is a valuable addition to OMNOVA’s family of water-based release coating polymers. It provides a range of characteristics to meet our customers’ specific production and performance requirements.”
SUNCRYL HP98 release coating polymers are very resistant to humidity, which improves release aging characteristics without the use of solvents. Improved temperature and age stability can extend the shelf-life of paper tapes and films – a valuable advantage for manufacturers, retailers, and end-users alike. Additionally, SUNCRYL HP98 has excellent water resistance, making it ideal for use in paper tape applications, including painter’s tape.
“With SUNCRYL HP98, our portfolio of water-based release coating polymers offers formulation latitude for customers seeking to optimize performance in film and paper tape and label applications,” said Rick Krause, Global Product Manager, Construction-Tapes-Adhesives, at OMNOVA Solutions.
Other hydrophobic water-based release coating polymers available from OMNOVA include SUNCRYL HP114 and SUNCRYL EU127. With SUNCRYL HP 98, these products provide a range of performance on both film and paper substrates to cost effectively achieve performance requirements that surpass the needs of the marketplace.
OMNOVA Solutions representatives are available to discuss SUNCRYL water-based release coatings and OMNOVA’s other tape and adhesive solutions at the PSTC Tape Summit in Orlando, May 2-6.
