Gabrosa is our sodium carboxymethyl cellulose (NaCMC or simply CMC) for use in wallpaper adhesives. Gabrosa is produced by reacting cellulose with sodium monochloroacetate to give a water soluble CMC with excellent adhesion properties.
Gabrosa for wallpaper adhesives is a granular product, dissolving readily without lump formation. Our cellulose ethers are delivered as an off-white, nontoxic almost odorless product. A variety of grades are available with excellent handling and adhesion properties designed to deal with all kinds of wallpaper and surfaces.
Gabrosa adhesives can be applied easily with a brush or pasting machine, exhibit excellent wet tack and (re-)positioning properties, have a more than sufficient open time with strong adhesion to all kinds of surfaces.
AkzoNobel is supplier of blister-free wallpaper adhesives. Due to their excellent properties the base products can be used as a standalone adhesive.
To optimize requirements the Gabrosa grades can also be used in blends.
