Presenting the end-use and application technologies of pressure-sensitive adhesives and products, Volume Three of the Handbook of Pressure-Sensitive Adhesives and Products discusses the build up and classes of pressure-sensitive products, the main representatives of pressure-sensitive products, and their application domains. It divides the main product classes of solvent-based, water-based, and hot-melt-based formulations by their debonding characteristics and water and temperature resistance, and illustrates build-up by adhesive-coated, adhesiveless, carrierless, and linerless pressure-sensitive products. It presents application technology, equipment, and novel products such as RFID, medical, and labels, as well as the self-adhesive competitors of pressure-sensitive products. It also lists professional organizations and suppliers, along with the main literature sources.

Pressure-Sensitive Adhesives and Applications, Second Edition explains how pressure-sensitive adhesives (PSAs) work, why they are used, and the technology used to manufacture them. This second edition features the latest developments in the field. Dr. Benedek discusses the factors that affect the rheology and special flow characteristics responsible for the adhesivity of liquid and solid PSAs. His book explores the viscoelastic behavior of PSAs, and compares them to plastics, rubbers, and polymers properties and examines the parameters that influence the conversion process of PSAs from the coating of carrier materials to the properties of the final laminate. The author covers adhesion/cohesion balance, time-temperature dependence of pressure sensitivity, chemical composition, coating properties, and coating processes affect the adhesive properties of PSA and their end products and how application-specific performance indices are used to determine the formulation and manufacture of raw materials. In addition, up-to-date coating machines, converting technology, and environmental considerations in the manufacture of PSA final products as well as industry-specific methods of testing for quality assurance and control are discussed. Pressure-Sensitive Adhesives and Applications, Second Edition combines the theoretical basis of pressure sensitivity with the practical aspects of manufacturing, testing, and use of PSAs. Readers are offered an exhaustive as well as comparative look at the engineering of plastics, adhesives, and pressure-sensitives, resulting in an indispensable, up-to-date reference for adhesive and polymer chemists and technologists.

Since the first groundbreaking edition of Developments in Pressure-Sensitive Products was introduced in 1998, heavy research has resulted in substantial progress in the field. Fully updated and expanded to reflect this activity, Developments in Pressure-Sensitive Products, Second Edition provides a detailed overview of the entire range of pressure-sensitive products, both with and without adhesives. It explores the principles behind their design and manufacture along with a variety of applications in medicine, electronics, packaging, and protection. The book establishes the link between underlying theory and practical applications, exploring the physical, molecular, and chemical bases of PSPs while describing the manufacturing processes, end uses, and economic issues involved. This edition includes three new chapters: the first of these explains the new theory of pressure sensitivity considered as a process, illustrating the principles of polymer science governing PSP technology; the second discusses the crosslinking of acrylics, the most important domain in specialized products; and the third presents the latest developments in products based on plastomers, such as hydrogels. Additional coverage includes biological applications of PSPs, engineering problems of coating equipment, web finishing for plastic films, and confectioning. Offering cutting-edge information from the frontiers of research and industry, Developments in Pressure-Sensitive Products, Second Edition is an ideal reference to all aspects of pressure-sensitive technologies and materials.

This monograph aims to give a comprehensive and detailed review of general results, which have been obtained in a special segment of the design and manufacture of pressure-sensitive products, known as formulation. For manufacturers of pressure-sensitive products and product components, formulation probably includes the main part of their proprietary know-how. The scientific basis of formulation, explaining the reasons behind certain mixing and processing technologies, is doubtless more important than a collection of compositional data and technical parameters. This volume collects technical and scientific materials concerning the most important theoretical and practical aspects of the formulation of pressure-sensitive adhesives. Based on the author's industrial and scientific experience, this treatise constitutes a theoretical and practical state-of-the-art monograph on the formulation of pressure-sensitive products. It is a practical guide for those who want to study, manufacture or use pressure sensitive products or their components, as well as for suppliers of adhesives, elastomers, plastics and additives, or manufacturing equipment. This book will be of value and interest to production and manufacturing managers, production engineers, materials scientists, chemists and new product specialists involved in the production or application of pressure-sensitive products.

Self-adhering (tacky) materials or pressure-sensitive adhesives (PSA) form an essential part of our everyday lives, with new applications of PSAs arising all the time across various industries. The vast majority of existing PSAs are hydrophobic rubber-like polymers, which means they don't mix well with polar molecules. However, it is precisely that quality that would be of greatest practical use in contemporary industry and medicine.This book describes innovative hydrophilic PSAs based on stoichiometric hydrogen bonded complexes of long-chain polymers (with repeating electron-donating functional groups) with complementary telechelic oligomers (with proton-donating terminal groups).These types of adhesives can be easily produced by simple mixing of parent polymers and oligomers in solutions or in melts. Unlike conventional hydrophobic adhesives, these hydrophilic adhesives are miscible with a range of chemical substances that have hydrogen bonding or ionic functional groups in their molecules. This includes numerous drugs, polyelectrolytes, electroconducting or physiologically active compounds, proteins, etc.The book shows the molecular design principles and distinctive characteristic features of various functional adhesive products based on innovative tacky polymer composites, such as:'smart' thermo-switchable adhesives adhering towards the substrates of different polarity and hardnessmussel-inspired adhesives functioning in aqueous mediatransdermal patches for enhanced drug deliverytooth whitening strips with tailored adhesion towards dental tissuesthe lack of adhesion to mucosal membranes in oral cavitymany other advanced products for medical, cosmetic and industrial applications.The number of functional polymers that can be used as parent components for producing novel adhesives is very large, suggesting that the polymer blending approach may revolutionise the adhesive industry in the coming decades.

Growing interest in the formulation of pressure-sensitive adhesives as described in the first edition of this book ( Pressure-Sensitive Formulation, VSP, 2000) required a new, enlarged edition including the design of pressure-sensitive adhesives as a separate volume. Developments in the understanding of pressure sensitivity were necessary to use macromolecular chemistry for pressure-sensitive design. Such developments include polymer physics and contact mechanics. Progress in coating technology, especially in in-line coating- and synthesis, opened new ways for the design of pressure-sensitive adhesives and products as well. Actually, pressure-sensitive-products with and without adhesives compete requiring a broad variety of material formulations and the corresponding manufacturing technology. The first volume of the book examines the theoretical aspects of pressure-sensitive design, based on macromolecular chemistry, macromolecular physics, rheology and contact mechanics. The second volume describes the practical aspects of pressure-sensitive design and formulation, related to product application. The advances in the various domains are described by specialists.
