Brand Family Overview

ThermaGloss® overprint varnishes (OPVs) impart excellent gloss to preprinted linerboard. Coated linerboard passes through the corrugator without picking, softening or smearing. Superior heat resistance eliminates the need for hotplate temperature reduction.

Usage

This sizing polymer provides exceptionally tight particle size control for fiberglass and other fibers used to reinforce polypropylene. It provides excellent strand integrity in chopped strand applications and contributes to great mechanical properties in the final composite. It is characterized by its small and very consistent mean particle size. As a binder it provides block resistance for soft goods. This product is APE free.
