Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - Speciality materials company Rohm and Haas introduced the company's latest innovations in environmentally advanced water-based technologies at the recent Drupa print media, publishing and converting conference in Düsseldorf, Germany.
Rohm and Haas's solventless polyurethane laminating adhesives are expected to replace solvent-based materials in many applications. Attendees interested in polyurethane systems found Rohm and Haas's Mor-Free ELM series particularly interesting, the company said.
Rohm and Haas explained that the amount of free isocyanate monomer in Mor-Free ELM products is below 0.1 percent, drastically lowering the risk of primary aromatic amine formation and reducing the cure time needed prior to shipment by as much as 50 percent.
"Building global leadership in environmentally advanced adhesive innovations is a core emphasis of Rohm and Haas," concluded Pierangelo Brambilla, Rohm and Haas European champion for water-based technology.
