Intercol’s has various aqueous polymer dispersions based on vinyl acetate and ethylene. It has been formulated to particular applications where a medium/ firm hand is required. The dispersion adhesive combines very high solids content with a low viscosity. This enables very high filler loadings, resulting in adhesive formulations with
high solid contents of 80 per cent or even higher. The adhesive is free from added organic solvents,
plasticizers and formaldehyde donors.
