GR 1093 is an aqueous, unplasticised polyvinyl acetate homopolymer emulsion. It is a low viscosity emulsion with high wet tack. It is compatible with dextrins and glucose.

Typical Properties

Appearance: Cream Coloured Emulsion
Solids Content: 64 – 66%
pH: 2.5 – 4
Viscosity, Brookfield 1 200 – 3 000 cPs
Film: Glossy, Hard, Brittle


GR 1093 is used in the manufacture of paper and board adhesives, especially remoistenable types for envelopes, tapes etc. It can be easily compounded with dextrins or glucose in powder or liquid form, but the pH must be adjusted to that of the emulsion prior to addition. The emulsion film has fast remoistening properties and good wet tack.

Innovation: It’s part of our DNA Large enough to deliver. Small enough to care.

Innovation is everywhere at Blue Reef. For example, the chemical products which we have produced for the anti-scalent market are unique in every way. Our “HEXAMER” based products are formulated and manufactured employing processes previously never used in the manufacture of water treatment products.
Not only does this make the products far more stable than traditional inhibitors, but one is able to actually test for the active aspect in the product. This takes scale inhibition and scale removal to a new level in that chemical dosing rates can be calculated very accurately resulting in cost savings and increased efficacy.
