High performance and quality production
The performance and success of the final self-adhesive product are largely determined by the quality of the adhesive, which is the most technical part of the complex. For the complete range of Italstick materials, only water-based acrylic adhesives are used.
Besides the obvious reasons of respect and protection of the environment, this choice allows some undoubtedly technical advantages: acrylic adhesives are not much subject to oxidation – hence to ageing – and ensuring product long shelf life. This is a very important aspect because when oxidized the adhesive gradually loses its properties.
The acrylic adhesives are characterized by a high degree of transparency and resistance to ultraviolet rays, crucial element when used with transparent films. Italstick range includes adhesives for food contact and for application of toys.
