acResin® for more sustainable self-adhesives

acResin® is a high-performance UV-curable hotmelt made of 100% acrylic. We want to play a key role in making the self-adhesives market more sustainable with this product, which is why we have steadily expanded the range of applications for acResin® and plan to continue to do so in the future. An eco-efficiency analysis certified by TÜV, an independent testing services provider, showed that compared with traditional solvent-based adhesives, acResin® enables a significant reduction in CO2 emissions of around 60%. Due to the consistent rise in market demand and range of applications, BASF expects to continue to grow by around 8% annually with acResin® until 2026.
