New adhesive from Herma is easily removable

New adhesive from Herma is easily removable

Herma has introduced a new removable, UV acrylic-based adhesive called Herma 42X.

Herma’s new products is available in small minimum coating quantities starting at 1,000 square metres. Usually, minimum coating quantities in this industry start at 7,500 square metres. 

The 42X ensures good adhesion and removability on a wide range of substrates, and allows for the easy implementation of flap labels

In the new 42X, Herma has completely eliminated the problem of ;ghosting’, or the non-tacky, but milky and distinctive adhesive film that can be left behind by other removable adhesives on some surfaces. At the same time, the 42X offers resistance against water, detergent, and oil, and exhibits no increased adhesion over time – removability therefore remains unchanged in the long run. 

‘With this new development, we offer printers and label users more freedom in their choice of self-adhesive materials without forcing them to compromise on removability,’ said Herma Product Manager Hendrik Kehl. ‘The 42X allows them to make even small label runs removable – in keeping with the goal of maximum flexibility.’
