Adhesive Resins 

Snowtack® tackifier dispersions  

Lawter has developed a wide range of tackifying dispersions which are specifically designed to serve the needs of the adhesive and surface coating Industries.  

Snowtack® tackifier resin dispersions are aqueous, solvent-free dispersions for the manufacture of pressure-sensitive adhesives based on acrylic, natural rubber or SBR emulsions. When formulated correctly, they provide an excellent balance of adhesion and cohesion to a wide range of substrates. Snowtack® can run on industry standard coaters at high speed due to its excellent stability. Snowtack® is an environmentally friendly component for your adhesive. All Snowtack® grades are alkyl phenol ethoxylate (APE) free.  

Burez® rosin soaps  

Burez® soaps are based upon disproportionated and modified rosins, saponified with sodium or potassium hydroxide. All our soaps have good stability and excellent resistance to crystallization and are available in a range of differing solids and viscosities. The Burez range has been mainly designed for three specific applications: emulsion polymerization, organic pigment production and wet glue formulations.
