Waterborne adhesives or water-based adhesives are mainly compounded with water as a diluent rather than volatile organic solvent and also they can be considered as low VOC adhesives. Further, they are considered as an environmental-friendly as well as economical alternative to solvent-based adhesives. Waterborne adhesives are mainly designed to deliver an effective combination of fast, heat resistant bonding, high ultimate strength and repositionability.
Water based adhesives are produced from both natural as well as synthetic polymers. Soluble synthetic polymers such as methyl cellulose, cellulose ethers, carboxy methylcellulose etc. Natural polymers such as proteins, starch, and casein are also used. Various polymers are utilized in the formulation of water-based adhesives which include acrylic, vinyl acetate-ethylene (VAE), polyvinyl acetate (PVAC) etc. These waterborne adhesives find applications in various end-use markets such as packaging, construction, PSA labels, and Carpet backing. Waterborne adhesives can be supplied in the solution as well as dry powder form.
Governmental regulations limiting the VOC emissions are supporting the demand for the waterborne products. Various organizations such as the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), California Air Resources Board (CARB), work in a direction to set restrictive limits on the Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) content in the coatings and adhesive products. Thus, in turn the demand for the solvent-based adhesives will decline and hence driving the growth of the global waterborne adhesive market over the forecast period.
However, the formulation of the waterborne adhesives is very complex as compared to that of solvent-based adhesives. Thus, in turn is expected to hinder the growth of the global waterborne adhesives market in the near future.
