Universal Seaming Adhesive (Patent Pending) is formulated to be used as a true adhesive for the seaming of shrink sleeves. USA is designed to be used on PVC and PETG shrinkable substrates. Unlike existing seaming solvents that melt the film, and the actual substrate to itself, USA forms a true mechanical bond which allows both edges of the finished tube to be glued to each other.
There are several advantages of using an adhesive over conventional solvents in the market today. The biggest advantage is that the adhesive forms a mechanical bond and USA will never migrate through a substrates layers. This avoids sticking inside or outside of finished tube and also eliminates the lifting of ink on inside of tube. Eliminating the migration defect is highly important as converters strive to down gauge substrates and remain competitive in the market.
USA also offers a 30% to 40% higher yield rate per gallon than conventional seaming solvent when applied at the recommended flow rates. USA only requires a minimum quantity to create acceptable bond strength.
USA is also more environmentally friendly than existing seaming solvent. The formula used in USA contains 80% VOC exempt ingredients where existing seaming solvents are almost all formulated with ingredients that are 100% VOC recordable.
Existing delivery and application methods utilized for solvent application will function flawlessly when using USA and operators will notice no major operational changes. Bond strength and seam clarity is equal to, and in most cases exceeds, finished shrink sleeve industry standards.
