Dispersion adhesive

Dispersion adhesive is an adhesive in which the adhesive particles are evenly distributed as small particles or droplets in a liquid. One such mixture is a dispersion.

Examples of dispersion adhesives are white wood adhesives, white craft adhesives, and cardboard adhesives.

Dispersion adhesive

The difference between a solvent adhesive and a dispersion adhesive is that the adhesive in a solvent adhesive is mixed with a solvent at the molecular level, while the adhesive particles in a dispersion adhesive are small, floating particles of the adhesive.

The adhesive bond is created by the evaporation or evaporation of the water. The solid particles remain, which together form the adhesive film.

Dispersion adhesives are used as:

  • Wood glue
  • Paper glue
  • Textile glue
  • Construction adhesive
  • Bookbinding glue
  • Packaging glue
  • Self-adhesive glue

Dispersion adhesives have two main groups at Intercol,

  • Homopolymers
  • Copolymers

environmental friendliness

Dispersion adhesives of the type SML consist of raw materials that are approved for use in food packaging. SML dispersion adhesives are generally harmless to the environment and completely biodegradable. A declaration, SDS and TDS can be issued for each type of dispersion adhesive.
