Thanks to a large investment in R&D resources and the combination of research and dedication, Concentrol manufactures high-quality products in accordance with the needs of industrial sectors on a global scale.

The company is divided into four main areas of activity: Performance Materials, Food Processing Aids, Additives and Adhesives. This time, we present the TACKTROL product range, the water-based adhesives that are devised and produced by the company’s Adhesives division.

The TACKTROL product range consists of adhesives in aqueous dispersion. Their composition can be defined as modified organic polymers in aqueous suspension. These polymers, as well as the additives necessary for the modification of properties, can be of natural or synthetic origin.

These solutions are applied in sectors such as container and packaging, decoration, labelling, textile, leather, lamination, footwear, graphic arts, bookbinding, stationery, carpentry, envelopes, repair of foams, tissue paper and food, among others.

In general terms, the products in the TACKTROL range are very versatile and adaptable to each application. They also offer adhesion to a wide variety of substrates, with high final strength and good setting speed. In addition, these products are VOC-free, therefore, they are safer for workers and generate fewer polluting substances.

 

Adhesives in aqueous dispersion TACKTROL

The TACKTROL range is aimed at a wide variety of industrial sectors. The characteristics of these products make them solutions with multiple applications and advantages:

  • Adhesives with great versatility, from rewettable adhesives to adhesives with great resistance to water from dry film; high and low temperature resistant adhesives; high-viscosity and low-viscosity adhesives with high solid content; adhesives with a heat-sealable or heat-stable layer, among others.
  • Application with a wide range of systems: roller, segmented roller, injectors, probes, spraying, brush, disc, manual, etc.
  • Adhesion to a wide range of substrates providing a high final resistance.
  • Easy bonding substrates such as cardboard, corrugated cardboard, thin cardboard or coated cardboard, paper, cork and wood. Therefore, this product range is perfectly suited to the manufacture of cardboard boxes and paper bags.
  • Difficult adhesion substrates such as varnished surfaces, UV acrylics, acetates, cellophane, plastics (PVC, PET, crown treated PE, crown treated PP…) or glass.
  • Good setting speed.
  • Wide range of viscosities depending on the application system.

In summary, the TACKTROL® range is formulated based on organic polymers of synthetic or natural origin in aqueous suspension, suitably modified according to application. These are adhesives that are easy to use and clean, and with a very high setting speed. At Concentrol, we can design tailor-made products based on customer needs.

After a journey of more than 75 years, at Concentrol we know that to offer the best value for money solutions it is vital to bet on research and development. A team of technicians works every day in our laboratories to develop products that meet the needs of our customers around the world.
