EcoStix® is a family of sugar-acrylic, pressure-sensitive adhesives (PSAs) that incorporates our EcoMer® technology within the latex copolymer structure. A two-tiered product offering is available that includes both customizable resin grades and formulated grades.
Our customizable resin grades are minimally formulated. They are intended for further formulation and co-blending to achieve unique PSA characteristics that are tailored to specific end-use requirements.
Our formulated grades of EcoStix adhesives are coater-ready and are available in a range of peel, tack and shear properties.
The adhesive properties of certain EcoStix grades are designed to respond to specific external conditions such as pH or temperature and allows the adhesive to be washed off without the need of added caustic. This is characteristic represents a recycling friendly PSA that is specifically designed to avoid added complexity in the recycling process and to enable full repulpability as well.
By using different EcoMer grades with varying petroleum-based comonomers, or by formulating EcoStix customizable resins, new PSA formulations can also be designed to provide a wide range of options that meet the needs of your unique application in terms of peel, shear and tack properties.
