BERBOND® 8990

BERBOND® 8990 is a thermoplastic binder that provides superior oil resistance, as well as dimensional stability when used as a saturant. As a coating binder, BERBOND® 8990 provides outstanding wet rub resistance and does not require the use of an insolubilizer. Coated sheets containing BERBOND® 8990 exhibit excellent sheet gloss and print gloss with minimal finishing.
