Pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) is a relatively thin flexible adhesive either single or double side coated. PSA will adhere to a variety of substrates when applied to most clean and dry surfaces with pressure. Pressure sensitive adhesives do not require solvent, water, or heat to activate the adhesive. The bond is directly influenced by the amount of pressure which is used to apply the adhesive to the surface.
Pressure sensitive adhesives (PSA) are used in many different applications with new uses being discovered almost daily. PSA use will continue to grow as a solution to fastening and joining due to advances in adhesive technology, ease of use, and its low cost compared to traditional fastening system. The growing demand from the end user applications forms the driving force for pressure sensitive adhesives market.
