About Rextac E101 APAO

35 lb Sample Case - Contact Us for Bulk Pricing

Rextac E101 is a Modified Butene-1 copolymer. If that is confusing, don't worry because we'll simplify. E101 has a very low softening point, medium viscosity and very long open time - up to 15 minutes. This makes E101 a favorite for nonwoven and product assembly applications that require additional time to set substrates. 

E101 is great for bonding most substrates, including PE and PP films. It offers an extremely strong bond and good initial tack.
