BASF has developed an adhesive coating technology that allows up to three different layers of adhesive to be applied simultaneously onto a carrier material using a multilayer die. When coating adhesive labels, for example, an oxygen barrier or UV absorbent layer can be integrated between two layers of adhesive without requiring three individual production stages. Manufacturers of pressure sensitive labels--including those with in-house coaters--can lower their production costs and save manufacturing time, the company claims.

The multilayer coating process is also said to make it possible to manufacture clear-to-clear laminates with BASF's acResin adhesives at over 1,312 feet per minute. They are UV cross linkable acrylate hot melt pressure sensitive adhesives. They are water and solvent-free and claims to offer advantages over conventional adhesives, both in processing and in environmental terms.
