Tack - The higher the number the higher the tack.  A tackier product is desired if the label has the proper amount of adhesive, yet the corners do not adhere promptly to the substrate.  Heavier label stocks may require tackier adhesives.

* - A product preceded by an asterisk is freeze thaw stable.  IF frozen in shipment and allowed to return to room temperature, the product will not be damaged.  Some slight stirring may be required before use.

Note:  GF#5 liquid glue requires no daily cleanup!  Request Service Bulletin #5 for details, or email us with your request.
