OPP Packaging Tape: Natural Rubber vs. Acrylic Water Adhesive

NATURAL RUBBER SOLVENT BASED ADHESIVE

Advantages

  • Will provide a more aggressive adhesion when compared to that of an acrylic Water Based Tape. It’s essentially more “sticky”.
  • Bonds with a wide variety of material types; including plastic and cardboard packaging made from recycled fibre and kraft paper.
  • Suitable for use in a broad range of temperatures, including cold storage and freezer applications.

Disadvantages

  • Not suitable for exposure to UV light or chemicals.
  • Susceptible to oxidation and may darken or discolour over time.

ACRYLIC WATER BASED ADHESIVE

Advantages

  • Offers superior durability and longevity on surfaces such as metal and glass.
  • Will not break down when exposed to UV light, chemicals or oxidation.
  • Colour stable and resistant to aging (will remain clear and not yellow).

Disadvantages

  • Lower tack & therefore weaker adhesion to materials such as used boxes and cardboard packaging made from recycled fibre.
  • Poor tolerance to low temperatures and humidity.
