Water-Based Glues and Adhesives
Water-based glues are made from naturally occurring substances such as corn and are processed into materials including starch and dextrin. These are among the lower cost glues on a per-pound basis.
Applications include: general labeling, poster mounting, and case and carton sealing.
Water-based adhesives are made from synthetic materials such as oil based resins and are generally fast setting with better adhesion on metals and plastics. Applications are similar to those using water-based adhesives but which are more demanding.
Additional applications for water-based adhesives include palletizing, and picture framing applications.
