The numbers above are sample values, not guaranteed values.

*1: Viscosity of 4% aqueous solution at 20 deg C
*2: Measured at 23 deg C / 65%RH

Recommended coating conditions

  • Solvent: water or water/alcohol (e.g. water/ethanol with ethanol 50wt% or less)
  • Solution concentration: 5-15% (according to coating equipment, desired coat thickness and line speed)
  • Drying temperature: 70-120 degree C

In order to assure adhesion, we recommend the use of substrate film that has undergone corona treatment.

In addition, use of an anchor coating agent is also effective to enhance wetting and adhesion.
