Currently, the two-component adhesive requires the mixing of the chief agent with a hardener prior to application. In Japan, this two-component system is common in industrial applications due to its high adhesion and high heat-resistance – requisite properties for such applications.
Now, with the newly developed PSA series by Toyochem, manufacturers can meet these physical property requirements with a one-component system as well as achieve both superior adhesion and high shear (excellent heat resistance) at performance levels similar to two-component compositions. Moreover, due to its one-component design, no mixing is required before applying the product, thus allowing manufacturers to use it anytime without worrying about its pot life.
With the addition of the new product to its PSA lineup, Toyochem is able to provide single-liquid solutions for a wide array of applications ranging from labels to industrial materials.
“We developed the Oribain BPS CQ lineup with the aim of expanding our business to markets for industrial applications in addition to labels, which had been our mainstay market till now,” said Satoru Takashima, president of Toyochem. “ We also strive to delight our customers in rapidly growing emerging markets with the ease-of-use of such one-component adhesives.”
Following this month’s launch of the Oribain BPS CQ series in Japan, Toyochem plans to grow this business to the Asia-Pacific and North America regions where the Toyo Ink Group currently operates manufacturing facilities for acrylic adhesives.
