Why should you view this course?

When formulating your water-based adhesives, it's often hard to strike a balance between performance (optimal flow, faster drying, high converting speed...) and costs. One of the best ways to lower formulation costs is by using lesser ingredients. But you need to ensure that the overall performance is not affected... It is time to unlock the full potential value of rheology modifiers that can do much more than just adjusting viscosity!

Join this course and:

  • Meet specific rheological properties in your WB adhesives (for tapes & labels, laminating, spray...) by making the right selection from the constantly evolving offering of rheology modifiers


  • Achieve more with lesser ingredients by understanding the potential value of using the correct rheology modifier (reduction of coating defects, drying time, effect on adhesion...)


  • Reduce revision and product development time to save costs by learning formulation principles, guidelines & best practices from a seasoned expert
