Pressure sensitive applications

« Back to Glossary Index

Pressure sensitive applications are used in the production of self-adhesive labels. Adhesion can be permanent, or the label can be designed to be (easily) peelable by hand. Pressure sensitive applications are also used for re-closable food packs and re-closable lids.Commonly, acrylic dispersions are used to produce pressure sensitive adhesives. In certain cases, non- reactive hotmelt chemistry and UV curing acrylic adhesives can also be used.
