Pressure-sensitive adhesives (PSA) are the most useful of all adhesive types due to their ease of application and immediate bonding characteristics.
Hot-melt, solvent-based, and water-based technologies are all used for PSA products. Newer technologies include radiation curable, hot-melt PSA for improved cohesion, especially at high temperatures.
A wide variety of applications include:
Tacolyn™ resin dispersions provide excellent performance in water-based acrylic PSA for a variety of label applications and natural rubber latex tapes.
Piccotac™ resins are ideally suited for styrenic block copolymer-based PSA. For end-block reinforcing adhesives,
Plastolyn™ hydrocarbon resins are the right brand choice.
