What is PSA?
Pressure sensitive adhesive application makes use of pressure to apply and activate adhesives onto extruded rubber products. Unlike other traditional bonding agents that require heat or solvents to activate, PSA allows the bonding agent and its effects to last longer with lower chances of the process reversing due to influencing elements that the product might be exposed to.
Applications of PSA
Pressure sensitive adhesive applications can be permanent or removable. Applications of permanent PSA include interior assemblies for vehicles, safety labels for electrical appliances and sound or vibration reducing films. Examples of removable PSA include skin contact, price labels and promotional graphic material etc.
The degree and type of bond that is formed be it permanent or removable depends on the amount of pressure with which the adhesive is applied. Varying with the amount of pressure, the adhesive forms a variety of chemical bonds that in turn determine the amount of hold that it will provide.
