A Pressure Sensitive Adhesive (PSA) is a permanently tacky substance that adheres to a given surface when light pressure is applied. A pressure sensitive adhesive maintains a fine balance between adhesion (holding power of the adhesive on external substrates) and cohesion (holding power of the combined internal components of the adhesive). PSA’s do not require a chemical reaction to develop adhesion forces.
Adhesive lamination is one of SRP’s service specialties. PSA’s can be applied to most substrates or materials for a higher performing end product. The different types of Adhesive Tapes include: Acrylic, Rubber and Silicone. Each type is available in Single Sided Tapes, Double Sided/Coated Tapes, and Transfer Tapes.
PSA’s are ideal for:
- Replacing mechanical fasteners
- Joining dissimilar materials
- Bonding composites
- Increasing productivity speed
What can Adhesives and Tapes do for your product and process?
- Build strong, durable products
- Improve appearance and aesthetics
- Lower production and material costs
- Build products with a continuous bond line
- Wider material selection for assemblies
Common applications for PSA’s include:
