Used for heat sealing or dry bond lamination applications, offering low temperature seal initiation and stronger bonds to paper, metal (foil or metalized surface), various primed films such as matt, pearlized cavitated BOPP or BOPET films. It should be used with the addition of a wax emulsion to control the coefficient of friction (typically 2 to 4% by weight) e.g. Michem® Lube 160 RPH.
