New SofTak 326 Coating from Michelman

CINCINNATI, OH (July 24, 2007)  Michelman's newest non-skid coating for paper, SofTak® 326, will perform at an angle of skid of up to 35º. It is ideal for use on slip/tier sheets, where it will reduce or eliminate product slippage and shifting of palletized loads during transportation. Common uses are in the packaged goods, produce, and furniture industries. SofTak® 326 is also used in a variety of other applications that call for a high coefficient of friction (COF) with or without limited water resistance.

SofTak® 326 is water-based, non-blocking and can be repulped in both acid and alkaline systems. It is gluable with hot-melt or cold-set adhesives, print receptive, and very easy to apply using conventional coating equipment such as blade or rod coaters.
