Pressure-Sensitive Adhesives and Applications
Get to Know Us. English Choose a language for shopping. PSAs join similar or dissimilar materials without requiring activation by water, solvent, or heat. PSAs are permanently tacky and provide sufficient internal cohesive strength to hold and bond materials together without breaking apart.
This ability to generate an instantaneous solvent free bond under light pressure allowed PSAs to gain world-wide acceptance in a variety of industries, markets, and applications. PSAs are used in tapes, labels, as assembly aids, and other products throughout the world. PSAs owe their success to being relative easy to use, convenient, increase productivity, and generally a cost effective bonding or decorating solution to alternative technologies.

PSAs have a delicate balance between their viscous ability to wet out and flow - bonding and elastic ability to resist flow, store energy - debonding properties. The ability of Pressure Sensitive Adhesives to bond quickly and hold materials is influenced by a variety of factors such as.
Adhesive performance is characterized by tack ability to bond instantly under light pressure , peel ability to resist its removal from a surface , and shear ability to resist internal cohesive failure when subjected to a shearing force. Rubber, acrylic, and silicone-based adhesives are typical PSAs chemistries used by tape and label manufacturers.
Rubber, acrylic, and silicone PSAs will perform differently due to their chemical nature. Rubber adhesives are generally known for their excellent tack and high initial adhesion, high affinity to low surface energy substrates such as polyethylene and polypropylene, poor to fair UV resistance, and tend to be yellow color.
Acrylic adhesives generally offer excellent weatherability and good clarity, good solvent resistance, low initial adhesion that may build with time, good plasticizer resistance, and good convertability not as gummy as rubber-based adhesives. PSAs are often referred to by their functional performance, i. Removable adhesives separate cleanly from the bonded surface without leaving adhesive residue or damaging the surface or substrate.
