Tangent’s laminating adhesives are robust, moisture resistant, and remain extremely flexible after cure. They are single component and solvent-free. These adhesives cure with low intensity UV or UV/Visible light, and are ideally suited for curing with cooler, monochromatic LED lights. Despite using lower intensity curing systems, cured adhesive surfaces are dry and tack-free.
Laminating adhesives from Panacol-USA can be dispensed manually or using roll coaters, gravure, and flexographic equipment. Several viscosity options are available in this adhesive selection to maximize processing efficiency. If required, Tangent’s adhesives can be formulated with color, making it possible to eliminate additional lamination done solely for the purpose of adding color to the final product.

Please contact Tangent to confirm your product selection and to secure additional application assistance, including samples and process recommendations. In the event that these standard products do not satisfactorily address your performance requirements, Tangent will investigate other solutions that include development of adhesive specifically tailored to the complexity of your application.
