Acrylic resins are used for many types of soft, but durable adhesives. As aqueous emulsions, acrylics form a viscous, white latex that polymerizes into a crystal clear solid. It is waterproof, tough and durable. Acrylic resins are also used as pressure-sensitive adhesives for plastic, paper, fabric, and foam tapes and labels.
