Abstract : Rapidly escalating costs of solvent borne adhesives have now given water borne adhesives a significant economic advantage to further advance the environmental and OSHA forces already acting to reduce solvent usage. Water borne adhesive systems based on chloroprene to polyvinylacetate copolymers are contrasted to solvent borne adhesives in areas of application processing, end use performance and economics.
