Pressure-sensitive adhesive coating company, Acucote Inc, has produced two new dissolvable paperstocks and a new water dissolvable adhesive for the creation of sustainable temporary labels for use in the food industry and other businesses which are constantly rotating or changing and disposing of labels.

The company reports that the DS1 acrylic emulsion adhesive adheres to plastics such as HDPE and LSE containers, as well as to metal, and is designed to disperse in both hot and cold water without leaving any residue, and he new papers, 40# Water Soluble Litho, and 47# Water Dissolvable Direct Thermal, will dissolve completely in water. This, the company said, would lessen the need for dumping temporary labels at landfills or sending them for recycling at a processing facility.

According to Acucote, the addition of the new adhesive and two adhesives to its sustainable products was in response to requests from clients and brand owners for more sustainable options.
