Pressure sensitive adhesives are incredibly versatile. They can be found in everything from food labels and packaging to bandages and electronics.
Pressure sensitive adhesives are a type of non-reactive adhesive which forms a bond when pressure is applied to bond the adhesive with a surface. No solvent, water, or heat is needed to activate the adhesive. Surface factors such as smoothness, surface energy, and removal of contaminants are also important to proper bonding. Pressure sensitive adhesives are designed to form a bond and hold properly at room temperatures. These adhesives typically lose their tack at low temperatures and reduce their shear holding ability at high temperatures.
